Our favourite places in Swansea to eat and drink outside

From April 26th, hospitality can resume outdoor service including cafes, pubs, and restaurants (with indoor service still restricted) With warmer weather on the horizon and lockdown restrictions easing on outdoor hospitality soon, we thought we'd put together a list of our favourite places for food and drink in the local area. Wrap up warm and enjoy!

The Secret Beach Bar & Kitchen, Swansea


Many members of the Dawsons team have been joining The Secret crew on their beach cleans, and can't wait for them to reopen. With sea views from their lovely terrace and mouth watering menus made from locally sourced produce, if you're looking for a real treat when restrictions are lifted we can highly recommend The Secret.

The Rake & Riddle


Part of the Gower brewery in Swansea, The Rake & Riddle team have been busy doing lots of work to get ready for outside opening on the 26th April. They use delicious local produce for their food, and are super family friendly with their website encouraging 'sandy feet and wet hair', so the perfect place to go after taking a bracing dip! It comes highly recommended from both Gethin in Swansea Lettings and Marketing Coordinator Naomi, too.

The Optimist Bar & Kitchen


Look at the mouthwatering food! For breakfast, brunch, and Japanese inspired food, The Optimist is a real treat and giving their Facebook page a like is a must!

Another local favourite, The Bistro are a bistro/ wine bar serving yummy tapas alongside a restaurant menu. They have a marque and 7 outdoor tables and will be opening 7 days a week - perfect for those outdoor catch-ups.

Dark Horse, Mumbles


Dark Horse is one of director, Chris Hope's favourites. They're open for takeaway every day from 9am at the moment, serving delicious coffee, lovely cocktails, brunch, and small plates to nibble. They also serve a wickedly naughty hot chocolate, which is extra nice for outdoor adventures.
