The Pilot of Mumbles has been named as South Wales Pub of the Year 2014 by Camra.
The pub beat off competition from seven other branch winners to take the title and will now go head-to-head against the North and West Wales areas for the title of Welsh pub of the year.
The pub, which also houses the Mumbles Brewery, opened in December 2012 and was an instant hit with customers for its great beers and warm welcome.
Licencees Jo and Richard Bennett said: “We are absolutely delighted with the award. To be South Wales Pub of the Year is unbelievable! We would like to thank the Swansea Camra branch for putting their faith in us.
“Also a big thank you to all our customers and the girls working behind the bar for making the pub such a great place to come and have a pint!”
The full results are as follows:
1. Pilot (Mumbles)
2. Lansdowne (Cardiff)
3. Fagin’s Ale and Chop House (Taffs Well)
4. Coach and Horses (Chepstow)
5. Star Inn (Talybont on Usk)
