Our Pub

WHY OUR PUB IS GREAT

Whilst visitors may call us the Pontardawe Inn, we are also known as the Gwachel. Meaning 'hidden', the pub got this name from a road side sign warning drivers of a hidden dip caused by being closely located to a ford across the river Tawe. Interested? Be sure to ask our staff a bit more about our history.

Our team are also happy to chat through our extensive drinks selection, from the real ales to the wide range of wines, spirits, beers and soft drinks on offer.

They can also recommend a food choice from our menu. Steaks, curries, fish and chips or a veggie option, we have it all.

Guests can also enjoy our beer garden, regular live music shows and of course some of the local groups that we host each week. Our pub is also home to the Pontardawe Town FC Welsh League side - so be sure to ask us about them too.

We have it all at the Pontardawe Inn - want to know more, just ask!

Safety is our Priority

Caring for our People Makes Sense

  • Looking after our teams means they can look after you.
  • This starts with providing our already fantastic teams with additional training to follow safe COVID-19 working procedures and regulations.
  • Each day team members will complete a health screening questionnaire to confirm they are in good health prior to beginning work.
  • We ask that you do your bit and respect our teams and any requests they have. It’s all with your safety in mind.

 

Keeping Social, whilst Social Distancing Makes Sense

Look out for additional signage in pub to establish safe, social distancing

This might include:

  • Highlighting where and how you order at the bar 
  • Removing some tables to ensure comfortable social distancing can be maintained
  • Managing capacity, meaning you may be asked to queue outside

 

Caring for you, your friends and family Makes Sense

  • Hand sanitiser is available to use at every entrance for your peace of mind.
  • Once inside we’re taking as many steps as possible to reduce contact 
  • Our menus will be used only once and are fully recyclable once you’ve finished with it

About our Food

When it comes to tasty food for all to enjoy we've got you covered!

We offer seasonal menus with vibrant, refreshing summer salads to enjoy on hot summer’s days, or comforting, warm dishes to keep out the cold weather.

Regular favourites such as burgers, steaks and fish and chips are available all year round. For the kids, our ‘Little Monsters’ menu has plenty on offer to tempt even the fussiest of young eaters.

If you enjoy a roast at the weekend, check out our Sunday lunch menu with a choice of meats with roast potatoes and all the trimmings. For those who like their food a bit spicy, our regular curry nights every week are a must.

Special occasions such as Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Mothers’ Day are all well catered for, with dedicated menus designed for each.

Contact our friendly team of staff who will be happy to tell you about what’s on offer and to book your table.
