Our Pub


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!

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.
