Seems to have made good many of the issues I encountered when I reviewed the place in 2014, the inside was in good order and a little more upmarket than previous. Though the cavernous former dancefloor remains as a quasi sports bar. Five ales on, mainly Welsh in origin – tried four of them and got good quality each time (NBSS 3, 3.5, 2x4), made even more enjoyable by being able to drink them outside in the suntrap front terrace. Also a decent selection of ciders on pump (further round the bar) and some interesting bottles too, including a gluten free option. Still much prefer the S&C as venue but this one is now giving it some long-overdue competition.

June 2014
Used to be a 'plub' but has now reverted to a huge wannabe foody lounge thing. Not much atmosphere although sitting outside on a summer's day is nice, watching the waves. Three unusual (for Aber) real ales on which are variable, despite the GBG listing and attempts to replace are met with passive-aggressiveness. Inside always seems to be dirty.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Glengower Hotel

Initially looks little different to most of the seafront hotels, but is an excellent food-led pub. The narrow front terrace is popular with those just looking for a drink, with many of the tables inside occupied by (but not restricted to) those dining. There is also a more basic bar with further seating and a couple of pool tables down a few stairs at the back. Good food (although not exactly cheap). Decent selection of mostly local real ales - including the Bragdy Mantle Cwrw Teifi - from five handpumps on the front counter, plus another five ciders and perries from a second bank on the other side. Definitely worth a stop if in the area.

Having only done a limited amount of research before my visit to Aber, I was surprised to find a proper pub here among the very smart hotels and guest houses on Victoria Terrace. Before our walk up Constitution Hill the doors had not been open, but I was looking forward to a pint on our return. The main bar in the front has five hand pumps, with four beers on and another on the way at the time of our visit. Purple Moose's Dark Side of the Moose was on, a favourite of mine and in fine shape. There's another bar around the corner in this multi-room hotel, this one with five ciders on hand pumps. Beside the other set in the front was displayed a Camra Pub of the Year award, which seems to have been well-deserved. We observed others enjoying their food and even passing their compliments to the kitchen, which brought a friendly response from the waiter - whether these were regulars or once-a-years, they'll remember this place with a smile.
