Places to Eat

Miller & Carter

National restaurant and steakhouse that boasts to be the best steakhouse in Swansea but they’d rather leave that to your judgement! Because once you’ve tasted their hand-cut, 30-day aged British & Irish steaks you’ll soon appreciate the care of their farmers, the exacting standards of their butchers and the passion of their chefs.
