Located right on the mouth of the dock, this is a large multi-roomer with a characterful ‘shack’ feel; tongue and groove wood panelling aplenty including the ceiling. Pool room off to the right and a virginal dart board in the main bar with no way to play. Plenty of seafaring garb on the walls including details of various wrecks. The beer garden spills out onto the green which on the nice day we dropped in was being well-utilised. Four cask; Felinfoel Double Dragon, Doom Bar, Evan Evans Seascape (NBSS 3) and St David's Whitesands (NBSS 3.5). Gwent Y Ddraig scrumpy also on. We ate here and the halloumi burger I had was a good bit of pub grub. Staff were good and helped me book a taxi. As mentioned below, a ‘sloop’ is a type of boat that was used for transporting slate. Prices were fair and certainly not inflated at the same scale that was described a few years back. A good stop. 7.5

Out of the way coastal single storey building with outside terrace and games room. Nice enough

This place is still much as described by Steve back in 2010. None of the areas were laid for diners when I visited during Saturday lunchtime, but food was clearly the main player here as just about everybody other than I and my companion were eating. I didn't see a menu, but by the look of what I saw others eating it mainly included pub grub. There were three ales on - Felinfoel Double Dragon, Hancock's HB, and Evan Evans Warrior. Being from London I didn't think the prices expensive, with an absolutely superb pint of 4.6% Warrior at £3.90 worth every penny.

There is maritime memorabilia everywhere you look in this pub. The room on the left, which stretches back to a lower area at the back, even has a rowing boat on the ceiling - or perhaps it is the ceiling? There is pinewood cladding all over the place giving it a light look, which doesn't seem out of place in here; the floor in the bar area as you enter is quarry tiled and there's a bit of carpeting, wood flooring and even slate tiles elsewhere.

I suppose somewhere like this just has to be a tourist destination, but it certainly wasn't heaving with people during my visit - we had no trouble getting a table just for a drink. As stated previously, it has an enviable location right by the harbour at Porthgain. It's certainly worth a visit if you're in the area.
