The Pilot Inn at Mumbles has been named one of Britain's best in Camra's latest Good Beer Guide.
The Campaign for Real Ale described the Pilot, which brews its own ale, as pub as "welcoming and friendly."
The pub which was run down and derelict looked as if it had closed for good two years ago said the Swansea branch of CAMRA. The Pilot was reopened by Jo and Richard Bennett in 2012. It was an instant hit with locals and real ale fans and six months later The Mumbles Brewery was started from the back of the premises.
They have developed their own range of ales that includes Mumbles Mile, Mumbles Gold, Lifesaver and Oystermouth Stout.
