IN this week’s Big 10 we’ve asked people which they think are the best pubs for a Sunday lunch in South West Wales. Recommend your favourite by commenting below.
1. The Bryngwyn, Pwll. “It’s a village pub and it’s gone from strength to strength over the years. It’s always got a great atmosphere, and there’s parking.”
Llanelli Star receptionist Joan Williams
2. “I love Cwmcerrig Farm Shop and Grill in Gorlas, Cross Hands. The food is the best around and the staff always go above and beyond. I would happily go there every Sunday.”
Gemma Arnold, 30, a mum of two from Clydach, Swansea
3. “We love going to Bizzie Lizzie’s Bistro in Walter Road. It’s a family-run business and we always get such a warm welcome when we go there. They always make sure my baby daughter Kizzie is the centre of attention — plus the food is always so tasty!”
Evening Post production editor Emma Bryant
“Amazing food and lots of it, quick service from attentive staff and fantastic atmosphere. Plus you can walk it off along the seafront afterwards...perfect!”
Rebecca Davies, Evening Post news editor
5. “My favourite place for a Sunday roast is the Railway Inn, Llanpumsaint. The food is home-cooked, the meat is always beautifully done and there’s just a lovely atmosphere. The owner and all his staff are very friendly, the service is excellent.”
Andrew Bassett, aged 50, form Starling Park, Carmarthen
6. “We have two favourites; the Rock and Fountain in Aberdulais and the Coach and Horses in Glynneath. They do proper, home-cooked food and the atmosphere in both is really nice.”
Mel Cooper, Port Talbot Lifeboat station spokesman.
7. “I recently discovered the amazing Lebanese cuisine of Kan Zaman restaraunt on Brynymor Road. They do a great mix of traditional and contemporary, have a good balanced menu for meat-eaters and vegetarians, the staff are really helpful and the decor is warm and very authentic. TripAdvisor give this restaurant very good reviews so I thought I would go along to see what all the fuss was about. I was not disappointed! I also enjoy lunch at Govindas in Craddock Street, and you can’t beat Surfside Cafe at Caswell after a surf or a wintry beach walk.”
Matt Roberts, 29, of Bryncoch, Neath
8. “I do go out and get my beans on toast from various places – but I would have to say Four Winds on Aberavon seafront. They have lovely staff, impeccable service and the food is first class. I would recommend it to anybody who wanted to visit Port Talbot.”
Captain Beany, 58, of Sandfields, Port Talbot
9. Hen Dderwen, Sketty Park.
“Good quality food and lots of it. But be warned, it’s so busy on Sundays it is best to book in advance. The staff are warm and friendly and so far we’ve never had to wait long for our food. It never disappoints and we return time and time again."
David and Ann Morgan, Saunders Way, Derwen Fawr, Swansea
10. “There are a few places I like going, but I particularly like the Dyffryn Arms on the way from Pontardawe to Neath. They have a beautiful dinner there, and the service is very good. I love going there, and it’s not just Sunday lunch either, you can eat there all week.”
Marion Comaskey, chair of the Cefn Llan Residents Association, Pontardawe, aged 68
