Firstly dropped by for a coffee after beach walk. Really friendly and welcoming staff. At the end of our day after exhausted walk came back for food. Absolutely delicious. Views fantastic overlooking tolcarne beach and good value. Nicely spaced tables. It was quiet when we went but it was a Thursday in November! Well behaved dogs welcome too.

If you sit outside you can look out onto both Great Western and Tolcarne. The good is reasonably priced. Beware, the portions are very large! The good itself is... More

Walked from Fristral beach, right through the town and fancied a drink at the end of a long walk, spotted the dog friendly sign so popped into the Steam bar.
