Pub & Restaurant
One of the top 10 pubs in Britain
We have a dining space to suit every occasion. A stylish restaurant, two bars and if the weather allows, a spacious beer garden with views of the village green. Here you will often find Gower ponies, sheep and cows grazing around the common land whilst you enjoy a cold drink in the sunshine.
An extensive menu caters for a wide variety of tastes using locally sourced Welsh produce. The daily specials include seasonal game, fresh fish with vegetarian and vegan options.
A delicious Swansea Pub Sunday lunch is also served every Sunday between 12pm-4pm.
Quality and Excellence
Renowned for our wide selection of beer on offer, you can choose from no less than five real ales, along with a wide range of gins, whiskies, Welsh liqueurs, and spirits. We also have a carefully selected wine list with a dozen wines served by the glass. So you can enjoy a nice cold glass of Marlborough sauvignon blanc or rosé in the sunshine in the summer or cosy up in front of the roaring open fire with a hot toddy or two in the winter.
In 2021 we were proud to be named The Times ‘Best Cosy Pub’

Mr Len O’Driscoll took over the King Arthur Hotel with his wife Kim O’Driscoll in 1991. By this time the building was in a dilapidated state and in need of complete refurbishment. The premises had still not been operated as a hotel. With much hard work and determination Len & Kim transformed the King Arthur Hotel into one of the most attractive pubs in Gower, indeed it was named one of the top 10 pubs in Britain by the Country Walking Magazine- the only inn or pub in Wales to be selected. In 1998 the refurbishment was completed with the nautical themed Gower Room and seven en-suite bedrooms. The King Arthur also hosted wedding receptions from the year 2000 in a marquee in the rear garden. In the Summer of 2003, the function room Avalon was completed together with twelve new en-suite bedrooms, Guinevere’s Cottage and landscaped gardens. Avalon has proven to be a very popular venue for wedding receptions, civil ceremonies, parties, conferences and dinner dances. The O’Driscoll family continue to run the business.
Exactly what country pubs should be… comfortable, well run and difficult to leave
