Welcome to The Southgate

Once Southgate was a village without a pub then the Southgate County Club obtained a pub licence - problem solved.

Today, with Sheila and Andy at the helm, it is a village hub, which welcomes visitors from near and far.

It offers:

  • Drinks including the local beers Gower Gold and Cwrw Braf together with a selection of wines as well as the usual offerings
  • Food, which is a typical pub menu as you can see from the food page, but the highlight is the Sunday lunches, which are the best in the area
  • A dog friendly environment, where they will probably be given titbits as well
  • A real Gower welcome


The Southgate County Club was formed by local residents in 1928. It has had a chequered history including a time in the 1950s when seamen coming ashore in Swansea for rest and relaxation came to the Club, which earned it the sobriquet of "Bucket of Blood".

It remains both a Club and a pub with a really welcoming atmosphere.
