Firstly dropped by for a coffee after beach walk. Really friendly and welcoming staff. At the end of our day after exhausted walk came back for food. Absolutely delicious. Views fantastic overlooking tolcarne beach and good value. Nicely spaced tables. It was quiet when we went but it was a Thursday in November! Well behaved dogs welcome too.

Walked from Fristral beach, right through the town and fancied a drink at the end of a long walk, spotted the dog friendly sign so popped into the Steam bar. What a lovely spacious and modern decorate pub. One drink ended up being a few and we stayed for food. We all had sandwiches and all were pleased with our... More
