user reviews of the No Sign Wine Bar, Swansea

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

4 Real Ales from small breweries on and the 3 that I tried were in excellent nick. Great for a quiet pint during the day but becomes a " different beast " on a Saturday night ! Sunday Roasts looked very good ... not tried because of the imminent departure of the train back to London.

The last of my 4 pub ticks before the game in Swansea the other week.

This is very much like 2 bars in 1. It used to be called Mundays and is now called No Sign Bar.

The front bar is a very trendy wine bar type of place, it’s light and welcoming and has 4 pumps with a good choice of ales and flavours, I went for a pint of Three Tuns - Rantipole - 3.6%. It was very good & I especially enjoyed using my camra card for a 10% discount on my pint.

Busy but I managed to find a seat close to the bar and chill out. There’s a large choice of wines and spirits as well as the pumps offering ales and decent lagers.

A large amount of beer pump clips on display, obviously ales that have been previously served and some of them are cracking, these are ones I have first hand knowledge of.

The back bar is more like a chain type pub but I understand this is a new addition.

All in all this is a great little place and very different to the other bars in Wind Street.

The best of the 4 pubs I visited but this and the Westbourne was head and shoulders the best ones.

One of the better pubs in Swansea. Long and narrow. Not a wine bar at all. Decent ales on, i had Mumbles Lifesaver and Hop back Crop Circle. Both at £3.20, but come down to £2.88 with CAMRA discount.

Reasonable enough if a little pretentious - it is on the Wind Street Battlezone after all (a street which has a couple of police riot vans patrolling even on a quiet Wednesday night). Staff friendly enough and the ale was good.

Like the last days of Pompeii outside on a Saturday night, but great inside. Bills itself as a winebar, but serves a good pint of Reverend James and something with a Welsh name that I can't remember. Best pub we found in Swansea.

The No Sign Bar is literally nextdoor to the Wetherspoons. But it was much quieter. The bar is very long and narrow, making for a slightly strange atmosphere. The area at the front seemed to be popular with diners. Drinkers were in the dingy centre of the pub, whilst the even darker rear was empty. We opted to sit on the suntrap patio towards the rear. Three ales were on - Cottage Whippet Gold Cup, Jennings Lakeland Stunner & Brains Rev James. Service was friendly enough.

3 ales on. All decent. OK beer garden.

Food was ok except for SWMBO's chips which tasted reheated.

Fab place.

Please DO NOT GO HERE. We want to keep it for ourselves!

11.00am on a Saturday isn't perhaps the best time to check out a pub but even so not bad. My pint of Whippet was fine. Place goes back miles! Bogs good, except the cubicle door opens out and the lock is broken (upstairs) so that makes for an interesting way to evacuate....

Recommend it for anyone going to football and need to keep away from the gangs of local knuckledraggers....

A really good pub. Friendly staff, interesting beers and, as mentioned below, a wide range of whisky, rum and gin. It was one of Dylan Thomas' watering holes - if it was good enough for Dylan it's good enough for me!

One of the best pubs if not the best visited on our weekend in swansea, decent ale and a proper pub feel, 8/10

Tomos Watkin Cwrw Haf and OTT and guest beer Marstons Wicked Witch. Pub is long and narrow, goes back for miles. Watch out for the uneven floor if you've had too much to drink!

This place is great, a haven amongst the hustle and bustle of wind street. I hadn't visited in a while but a work night out brought me back to the place and i remembered what a great little find this is. A good choice of drinks, and i was especially happy to find that there once rather drab terrace had been done up with heaters, flowers to make it a pleasant seating area for smokers and non-smokers alike. Now rediscovered i'm sure i'll be out the back with a glass of wine basking in the sunshine very soon!

A nice quiet 'local' type pub in the heart of swansea's busy wind street. Real ales and fairtrade wines aswell as local welsh penderyn products - a must for the drinker who knows what they like. As well as well known quality house spirits, extensive choice of whiskys, rums, etc. Not often you get a choice of which gin - you usually get what your given. Nice to see not everywhere goes for the cheapest, 'copies' and alternatives to real brands. Im a firm believer you get what you pay for - but even the big names are reasonably priced. Quality over quantity - wins my vote!

An oasis in a street full of chain "pubs". The only problem is having to dodge the drunks spilling out of said chain "pubs" as they do their crawl along Wind Street.

Dragged in by my wife who has been in before I was delighted. I am glad there is not a No Sign where I live or I would be there all the time.

Definately for the oldies. (40+) seemed Ok but as is so long and relatively narrow, it is awkward to move around. Nicely decorated but not my sort of place.

A surprisingly civilised spot in the heart of Wind Street. Probably the only place on Wind Street that you would actually come to to have a few pints (or glasses of wine) with a couple of friends, rather than come to just get hammered. Though that is always an option as well, of course!

Having had to work in Swansea two or three days a week for the past month the No Sign has been an oasis in a dearth of pubs with decent beer in the City centre. The tapas meals are particularly good although the beer has been below par on a couple of occasions.

A poky old bar once frequented by Swansea's most famous son, the No Sign is the only place on Wind Street worth making a special visit. Good beer, great food, friendly staff and a fine selection of wine. There are also two more modern bars behind and below the main pub for later in the evening.

The "modernisation", removed the wonderful character of the old [small] bar - it could be anywhere now - "globalisation here we come", chainganging rules!
Sad - Swansea could be attempting its revival, without finishing off what the germans didnt blitz!

one of the most decent pubs in swansea, but definately for 30+'s. gets very crowded on weekends, but top tip is to go upstairs, which is often emptier
grumunkin - 5 May 2005 18:23
one of the oldest drinking dens in swansea, frequented by dylan thomas all those years ago! still retains it`s olde world charm but has modernised in standards and service to compete with the rest of wind street. one of the best range of wines in swansea, well kept beers and a great pint of guinness. delish home cooked food (not out of the micro!), can recommend the sunday lunches too! attracts a good crowd and very bust at the weekend. a must visit if you visit swansea! live music on thursday and sunday nights, nothing too hairy though!
