Harbour Bar

The Harbour Bar has best views the welsh coastline has to offer during the clearer days. Also giving you a front row seat to spectate on one of Wales' busiest RNLI launch slipways whilst enjoying devious food and a great range of signature cocktails.



This restaurant is located in the just of the centre of Porthcawl's high street. The atmosphere is friendly and the food is fresh and is very much one of my personal favourites.


Saltwater Inn

The Saltwater Inn provides a family friendly, dog friendly pub/restaurant serving good value home cooked food all day, every day.



There are lots of independant cafes located in John Street which is onlv a short walk from Butterflv Guest House. All of which offer a full cooked breakfast and lunch menus. Sidewalk Cafe and Gusto are my personal favouites! The food is fresh and healthy options are available.


Cosy Corner

industrial vintage themed lounge, with nautical overtones is perfectly located on the seafront of Porthcawl. Regardless of the weather, it's the perfect spot to relax and sip a coffee, or to enjoy a small tasty bite for lunch or to even treat yourself to one of our bespoke cocktails whilst watching the sunset!!



Porthcawl offers a range of takeaways from Chinese, indian, English and
Turkish. There are lots of classic fish and chip shops located near the
coastline which also offer inside dining.
