The menu has a good range of pub favourites prepared and cooked to a very high standard. This is virtually gastropub but with a local flavour. Expect plenty of locally sourced produce and the Gower slant on recipes is evident. The food really was excellent...More

The Welcome has immediate access to the Wales Coastal Path and other stunning coastal and inland walks.
