This bar is disgusting!!
Rude staff and managers.
Bouncer looks like she chewed a wasp.
Not a clue how to run a nice gay bar
The whole place stinks ,dirty floors furniture.
Expensive for drinks
Really not worth the money
Better off going to wine street
Better atmosphere there .
What a shame there is not another nicer gay venue in Swansea!!
Avoid this dirty disgusting place !!!!
Close it down !!!

This has got to be the worse Pub I've ever been too! What a dirty disgusting establishment. I thought LGBT venues were supposed to be the cleanest?? The toilets are Vile, The glasses are rotten. The draught beer tasted so much like Yeast, I thought they served me liquidised stale bread! The extremely rude 'kids' working behind the bar do not possess any customer service skills what so ever. They are damn right rude! The floors are so dirty I thought I had been permanently glued to it as they were so sticky! And the manager Joe is a completely horrible, rude human being!! Avoid this awful Pub!!

I love this venue go here on a weekly basis to see Amber Dextrous and Ruby Slippers all staff particularly Alex (Pikey) and Rob are so friendly Nico is an excellent manager and looks after his staff and the regulars. Everyone is friendly, good prices. Best LGBT venue in Swansea just a shame not many support it anymore!

Ruined night.
Nov 2017 • Friends
After a quiet night of playing music with my friends at a pub down the High street, I was asked by friends to come for a drink in the Kings. I'm sorely disappointed I made that decision. Really ruined my night, as the drag queen who came out to perform openly transphobically abused me and when I confronted them they shouted me down, refused to apologise and then when I was waiting for a cab outside made transphobic jokes about me in my absence. Deeply upset, don't go to this hateful place.

Awful place
Feb 2017 • Couples
Called in for a quick beer, dreadful place! Thought it may have improved after its recent attempt at refurbishment but the place is filthy and has a strong smell of disinfect from the toilets that hits you as soon as you enter the place. Staff are clueless and too busy looking self important to notice how dire this place is. Swansea used have a good gay scene, this place claims to be a gay venue yet most people in there appeared to be straight, loud and obviously drink there because they aren't welcome elsewhere! On my brief visit I observed the assistant manager serve a woman so drunk she couldn't walk, he was even kind enough to count the exact money from the loose change in her hand as she was incapable; shocking, she should not have been served at all... know the law!! A second elderly female also came in, openly having a bottle of wine in her bag and extremely drunk, so drunk she fell down the stairs.. twice, yet nothing was said by the so called management!!! To top it all the toilets were absolutely disgusting, wading in filthy water, no hot water, no soap.. should be condemned! This place needs to be closed down.. don't think it will be missed!

Terrible experience
Jun 2016 • Friends
I went there with my friend who suffers from aspergus autisum. He was having a good time, which is unusual for him and then the barman kept making fun of him and talking behind his back to the other barmen. As a result we had to leave before he had one of his meltdowns. We will never make another visit to this place ever again.

Going down hill

The music is still good and the bar still has a choice of beers for all taste but the last two afternoons I have visited has disappointed me. The people frequenting there are loud and brash now, kids allowed in to run about the place - not the kids fault as they get bored in bars. Why allow them in?

Won't visit next time I am in Swansea

Pleasant suprise

Busier than I imagined on a Sunday afternoon. The 'regulars' were quite friendly and the music not ridiculously loud or timidly quiet.

The beer tasted fine and was reasonably priced.

It seemed there had been a refurb since my last visit in 2011 but this, thankfully, hadn't changed the appaearance too much (as often happens). Nice to see the pool table and the large space for dancing / groups of people still exists.

The toilets still leave a lot to be desired but this was the only minus and didn't bother me much.
