Aberdeen steak gorgeous, go there on a Tuesday steak club day and you get a discount. Very good value comes with a drink I had Sharp's Doom bar. Highly recommended if you find yourself lost in Morriston.

Really nice pub with the usual high standard you would expect from a wetherspoons chain only better. No nonsense accepted here. Good food and a huge selection of ales served by very pleasant staff. Would highly recommend.
