Hi there! Have just returned home from a wonderful holiday with my daughter at Porthcawl...We visited The Museum where a male Guide there recommended your helpful unfailing hospitality in the Ghost experiences at your Pub. He said you would show us the haunted accommodation that Spirits reside in. Is this true please?

Set on the edge of the beautiful Kenfig Nature Reserve and on the South Wales Coastal Path this Award winning family run free house is an icon of the Great British Pub.

With a good selection of Regional and Local Guest Ales, all bar food is sourced as locally as possible and prepared freshly daily.
Two open wood burning fires glow during the winter month, to give a very warm welcome to all travellers.

The Pub is a place of special historic interest, showing many pictures of Local Shipwrecks and disasters, upstairs visit the Old Town Hall of the Ancient Norman City of Kenfig as shown on Time Team 2013. Visited by HRH Prince Charles 2013 New Zealand All blacks 2014 and many more
