Visited this establishment for the Friday 5pm-10pm meal offers. I had pre-booked a table for two for 7pm earlier in the week, to be told that it was ok as they had only a party of 22 booked in so far. We placed our order, one for the 'offer' and one off the menu, at 7.20. The main meal did...

This place is great, nothing is to much trouble for the staff to make ones stay enjoyable, the food is excellent, even now more so that they have revamped the menu, the locals who frequent the pub/hotel are always friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable.

Told there was no carvery as the unit had broken but plated dinners were being done from the kitchen. Portion size was lovely, veg was all well seasoned and very colourful, meat was tender and very tasty and the gravy was gorgeous. All staff were happy and service was quality. Had dessert after which arrived very quickly :)

We came on a Thursday evening for a quiet tea with my boyfriend and his mum and it was lovely! Food was fresh and big portions and friendly atmosphere! :) We enjoyed and will definitely be back in future!

Visited on a Sunday evening to enable me to be at an early business meeting on Monday morning. Room was very clean and had everything I required.Room 5 was a bit noisy due to an air con or extraction fan under the window. Bed was very comfortable. Bar staff were very locals focused, it was a bit difficult getting served....

Many thanks for your feedback. If you require a receipt for food and beverages purchased please drop me an e-mail at twelveknights@sabrain.com and I will get an invoice done for you. We had to lend our bar printer to the kitchen as theirs had gone down. Apologies for this.

Quick and easy access off the M4 at Margam. Plenty of parking. Clean and spacious with low ceilings and lots of quirky timber beams and pillars, small outside sitting area. Accommodation available. Average pub menu. Service was quick and food was well presented. Obviously popular with the locals at lunch time

Warm welcome, very relaxing environment for pleasure or business. Didn't have time for food, will try some on my next visit. Overall very pleased with the service. I believe they have entertainment on some nights. There's good parking facilities and it's not far from central town.
