It’s a little on the edge of town, although as Swansea is not very big it’s not far from anywhere. As far I could see it’s the only bar in Swansea, nor did there seem many options for an evening meal either. Therefore unsurprisingly we...More

This place has a range of reasonably-prices food options (tavern or cafe), friendly staff and a nice outdoor playground for the kids. Great place to stop for a lunch break when you're on the road with little ones!

Would give this place six stars if I could! Friendly staff, yummy baked goods (the lamb pie a particular stand out), good coffee, clean toilets and a kids playground.

Ordered the chicken main for $30 and received a cold version of a red rooster meal for x4 the amount. My friend asked for the seafood pizza, wasn't worth the amount given it was frozen seafood. Service was great but food wasn't worth it!

Response from Ralph B | Reviewed this property |
When we were there, operating hours for the Bakery was from 6:00 am and breakfast from 7:00 am with lunch/dinner through to I think 8:00 pm and drinks until 10:00 pm. But best you check with them on arrival in the area.

It is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, should have it, but I would send them an email and ask. It might be a special menu.
