Loved the new Tandoori Chicken Salad on the Thursday Curry menu. To make it a bit bigger I ordered it with Bombay potatoes but they were awful - greasy blob of cubes of potatoes stuck together. But the salad was delicious perhaps I'll have it with an onion bharji next time.

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.

Have not long returned from a quick meal here. Whilst my husbands lasagne and chips and my sirloin were in fact tasty and good value for money, both meals were just about warm at the very least.
