Are you saying that people have to pay to extend an existing voucher by three months despite you closing and not allowing people who have a voucher to use it?..

Fabulous photograph of Oxwich Beach and the Beach House from the 1930โ€™s we think?

Worrying to see that the head of the beach retreat by approximately 12m since this time through coastal erosion.  

Thank you to the amazing Suzy Mayhew for sharing.  We love this lady. X

We were there in February of last year and had a wonderful weekend and the food was delicious. Can't wait to come back.

My favourite seaside restaurant, looking forward to the opening and Hywel’s GBM food ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

Looking forward to you opening

Crispy flowering courgette
Our menus evolve every season and we do have some signature dishes that have been on our menu from the very beginning.  A firm favourite with our guests is the Crispy flowering courgette.  Head Chef Hywel Griffith shares his inspiration for the dish.

Crispy flowering courgette
Snowdonia cheese, tomato, olive and basil

Here we have a provencale inspired dish.  The courgettes are grown locally in Burry Green, Gower and the creamy punchy filling is made with cheese from my beloved home region of Snowdonia. This dish just screams Summer to me, the freshness and simplicity of the ingredients just captures what Beach House is all aboutโ€ฆ. Local, fresh and honest cooking.

Last time I ate one of these was in Ischia. They are so so delicious. Need to taste this ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Last time we had courgette flowers was in Rome. No chance of a return visit so hopefully they are on the menu when we can visit you again

Andrew Copson

Have missed this when I’ve eaten at the restaurant before, hoping I’ll get to try it if you keep it on the menu in future ๐Ÿ˜‹

Can't wait for you to open . I will definitely be visiting. You made us Welsh very proud of you on TV enjoyed every minute xx Diolch yn fair i chi x

The first time I tasted stuffed courgette flowers was in Lesvos and fell in love with them. Hope to taste yours one day Hwyel when you reopen xx

I L.O.V.E your courgette flowers - they are just completely scrumptious ๐Ÿ˜‹

โ€˜Congratulations and thank youโ€™sโ€™

Warm congratulations to my fellow competitors Alex Greene, Niall Keating, Tom Barnes, Kerth Gumbs and Ruth Hansom on delivering such a fabulous banquet last night.  An amazing achievement for you all and lovely to watch after all that hard work and endeavour. 

I had a wonderful time on the Great British Menu series but with all of these things of course there are lots of people who we need to thank.

Melanie Sanders from @chapel58 who lovingly painted โ€˜the onionโ€™ pirate boats, Rodney Bender from Innovative Glass in Clydach for the embossed Twrch Trwth cloches, Ben Thomas at the Slate Workshop in Llanelli for the slate on โ€˜the onionโ€™, Anthony Kleinberg at Abbey Masonry in Cross Hands who crafted his interpretation of Arthurโ€™s Stone and Claire Evans from Seasalt Pottery who made the bouche bowls, plates and golden egg.  Our fabulous designers @monddi in Pembroke who patiently designed my little childrenโ€™s cookbook that beautifully illustrated the inspiration behind each dish.  And last but certainly not least Zoe and Neil Kedward, the owners of Beach House Restaurant, who worked closely with myself throughout the process as a sounding board for ideas and much, much more. All of this work was turned around in very short timeframes and so it could not have happened without everybody coming together like they did. 

I would also like to thank the producers for inviting myself onto the series.  All of us were made to feel very much at home and I personally loved every minute of the challenge, competition and camaraderie that makes the show so special.  Also a big thank you to Susan Calman who really did help lighten the atmosphere when we needed it most.  Her natural charm and good humour really did make all the difference.

We look forward to welcoming our customers back to Beach House very soon and more information on possible opening dates will follow as soon as we have clarity on that from Welsh Government.

Hywel

๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ congratulations. You made Wales very proud.

Congratulations, well done, loved the whole series, you certainly put your heart and soul into every course you presented, well done Hywel x

Did Yourself and Wales proud, Hywel. Probably my favourite series of the last couple of years. Be prepared for a party of about 20 of us to celebrate our 40th anniversary next year. โค๏ธ๐ŸŒˆ

Well done Hywel you did wales proud ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ Looking forward to bringing my family down XX

Well done Hywel I really enjoyed the show . Yours dishes looked fantastic, such a talent .๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ Congratulations and best wishes ๐Ÿ˜Š

We have loved watching you on the show. Congratulations Hywel.๐Ÿ™Œ

You’ve done yourself, your family and Wales so proud dude. Massive congratulations. Miss you big fella. X

Excellent effort Hywel and congratulations all round. Thoroughly enjoyed your contribution.

Congratulations Hywel, you did Wales proud !!

You did Gower and Wales proud Hywel....you made a wonderful contribution and put The Beach House rightly on the best places to eat list....well done & hopefully be visiting again soon ๐Ÿ‘

I loved watching you cook and compete with the best. So nearly there at the banquet! Well done and best wishes for every success in the future. ๐Ÿ†

Many congratulations to you and all the other individuals who helped you to deliver those stunning props and dishes themselves.Can't wait for the Beach House to open again.You are the pride of Wales, showing great character and cameraderie with the rest of the chefs on the show. Your interaction with susan was great, very entertaining!!

Well done on your amazing dishes, please try again next year as you deserve to cook at a banquet!! Felt proud watching you ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Congratulations Hywel Thoroughly enjoyed the series and felt certain you would get to the banquet. ... so I look forward to next year! Looking forward to being able to eat again at the Beach House ASAP .

You were a great contestant very well done indeed xx

Well done congratulations. Can’t wait to get into the restaurant again x

Well done Hywel. Wales was very proud of you x

Well done Hywel. You did yourself, the restaurant and the country proud. Consistently good dishes and so near to getting to the banquet. Pipped at the post. Really looking forward to you reopening, when this dreadful time is behind us. Your phone will be deluged. Keep safe.

Well... Hywel (and everyone else in the Beach House team)... It was inevitable that as soon as you showed your talent as a chef, but also as soon as you made the lovely Susan laugh, you were going to be the star that we knew you were from the moment we opened the wooden and slate bread box in the first week you opened. I should warn you though about some serious legal consequences! As a lawyer presently working from home I have been drafting some new Welsh legislation to deal with any future crisis. How it works is this... if you are ever offered a place anywhere else the “Hywel Held at Home Just For Us (Wales) Act” will kick in. The First Minister has confirmed that if anyone tries to take you away from Oxwich you will immediately be arrested and held in lockdown in that storage container used by the water sports guys in the car park. You will only be allowed to walk, not drive, and will only be allowed to do essential activities (which in Schedule 22 it specifically says only includes one thing: cooking for us in the Beach House) ๐Ÿ˜‰ Seriously... great couple of weeks watch you shine. One of these days (goodness knows when) we’ll go and catch some Gower fish...

Well done. Your dishes looked amazing. The Beach House was on our list of restaurants to go to this summer so hopefully we will get there sometime ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Well done Hywel , look forward to the reopening of the Beach house.

Well done, you should feel so proud of yourself, your dishes were amazing, and your professionalism and passion for your craft shone. Can’t wait to be able to visit Oxwich again soon x

It was a fabulous series and Hywel we watched hoping you’d get through. You came so close with some wonderful dishes ๐Ÿ’– xx

Well done Hywel! You did us proud! ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ Loved watching the show - so much talent! Can’t wait to come back to the Beach House

Congratulations and well done would love to c those dishes at ur restaurant ๐ŸŒˆ

Great British Menu

What a week it has been and were sure youll agree it has been an absolute pleasure to watch our Head Chef Hywel Griffith compete in this years series of #greatbritishmenu and represent Wales.  

From winning the Welsh heats, to coming in the top 3 twice, throughout the series Hywel has not only demonstrated his first class culinary skills but has shown the nation what we see everyday, which is the genuine, humble and friendly guy.  

We cant wait to watch the banquet tonight and wish all the remaining chefs the best of luck! 

Well done Hywel, as always we are so very proud of you.

Can’t wait for you to open, waiting to travel from Cydweli Carmarthenshire to eat xxx

So near, yet so far. I would quite happily demolish any of the dishes you’ve cooked up through the last couple of weeks. You’ve done Gower and Wales proud. Can’t wait for our 40th anniversary meal at the Beach House, next year. Fingers crossed life has some normality back by then. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Žโค๏ธ๐ŸŒˆ

Well done Hywel for a great effort. Thought you were unlucky with the Peacock Pie and the Golden Egg! Would love to see both on the Beach House menu ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Really enjoyed seeing you on the programme I thought you made fabulous food and deserved to cook at the banquet. Will eat again at your restaurant soon I hope best of luck

Watching Hywel on GBM has definitely encouraged us to visit your restaurant. Well done Hywel! We're not too far away, so hope to visit soon.

So unlucky with the golden egg, should have won with that ๐Ÿ˜• What a grand job though and your personality really shone through. Can’t wait to come and taste your food again soon. Well done! ๐Ÿ‘

Well done Hywel ... you should have been cooking in the banquet .... you definitely had the best desert!!๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅ‚xxx

Great work Hywel. Fantastic representation for Wales and The Beach House . xx

Have loved watching the last week, you have done Wales proud.

Absolutely - as much as his food looked literally incredible, I loved how gracious and encouraging he was towards the other chefs. respect,H. That’s rare x

Well done Hywel, you were very unlucky but your food looked outstanding. Llongyfarchiadau mawr ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ

Hywel huge congratulations you are an excellent chef and a natural on TV! Book me a table for whenever you have a guest chefs GBM night it will be amazing! We are so lucky to have you and Beach House in Swansea. We just need you to be able to open up again xx

I’ve been rooting for Hywel all week. Only been lucky to get in with you once, but can’t wait to come again. ๐Ÿ˜‹โค๏ธ

I cannot get into messenger owing to my change of email address and the Facebook and messenger are not compatible. However with my daughter living in Horton I might come to your restaurant once this continuous virus allows us.

Huge Congratulations Hywel you were amazing and did yourself proud, Wales and The Beach House well done

Can't agree more! Can't wait till we can come to the Gower once more. Think the Orton family will be planning a massive reunion at the beach house. Well done and every good wish for you all in these trying times.

Well Done Hywel. Loved the series and look forward to visiting The Beach House for the first time. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ

Loved every minute, and yes very generous and humble when tasting everyone else’s , which couldn’t always be said for the others ... I do hope the peacock pie and the golden egg shows their faces at the Beach house ๐Ÿฅฐ

We've eaten a fair few times at the Beach House, so are aware of Hwyel's fabulous culinary skills but his personality really really shone through too. It's funny how that also makes you decide whether or not you'd like to eat at a chef's establishment. So looking forward to coming back.

Well done Hywel. You did Wales proud. We were going to come to your restaurant for our anniversary in April but couldn’t because of the lockdown. We’ll definitely be paying a visit when we can ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Hywel, hard luck!Robbed at the last by inferior desserts.Even the rest of the pros thought u would get it!! We are all very proud of the way you performed, the way you helped other chefs out, your honest comments on tasting other chefs dishes and the way you came over on tv, unhurried, in control with a big grin on your face!!You obviously enjoyed being there, hope you get another opportunity!!Loved watching you work to produce your dishes!!Hope to see you in the Beach House once this Covid madness is over!!

I really thought his dessert would have have come 1st or second, gutted for him.

My wife and I enjoyed watching you in the great British menu Hywel, you are a culinary genius.

Well done Hywel. I honestly thought your dessert would have been top. You did Wales proud x

Well done Hywel, what a week it’s been! Loved watching you and your food looked stunning. x

What a great achievement to get to the final three chefs, it was so close with only 1 point difference. His โ€˜King Arthur Peacock Pieโ€™ and medieval banquet was really something special. 

We canโ€™t wait to watch tonight where the chefs will be competing for the dessert course and Hywel will be serving his fabulous โ€˜Golden Eggโ€™. BBC2, 8pm.

Well done Hywel you've done Wales and yourself proud and not forgetting The Beach House looking forward to dessert

Soooo close! ๐Ÿคฆ What a professional, well done Hywel. You and your food are coming across as top class, which we, who have been fortunate enough to eat at The Beach House, already knew. Can't wait wait to get back there.

Thought it was the best one there!!Hywel shows his mettle by not stressing on being a little late on service, ensuring his pie was cooked properly before serving it to the judges.He is also very helpful to all the other chefs!!Good luck tonight, hope the Golden Egg is your golden ticket to the banquet!!

Well done Hywel. Amazing cooking as usual. You have certainly brought to the attention of the whole UK how excellent is the quality of Welsh chefs and Welsh produce.

Can’t wait to have another fab dining experience @ the BH ! Love the way most chefs help each other out when on a deadline but the judges are so annoying

really thought you deserved to win with your amazing main course ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ you did Wales proud

Hywel was brilliant - unflappable and very honest about his talented rivals. Can’t wait to eat his food again soon!

The pie looked amazing! Hope he does it tonight with dessert!

Almost made it . Great effort for your first year๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ maybe next ๐Ÿ˜‰year da Iawn!

The pie looked fantastic and was real banquet food. Well done to all and especially to Hywel who smashed it. Great ambassador for Wales and Welsh food ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Loved your Peacock Pie & medieval banquet thought you should have won . Random question but where did you source the lovely sword /dagger shaped knives that you used ?! They were brilliant and would love to get some but cannot find anywhere online.

Was brilliant and so close well done, looking forward to seeing the next course ๐Ÿ˜

Brilliant night so close ๐Ÿฆš ๐Ÿฅง

So close with only one point separating all three chefs! Pob Lwc heno Hywel! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ

We watched tonight with bated breath Hywel! So proud... one point in it behind a stunning main course in fairness. I have said to Lee throughout... “the Egg will get there... the Egg will do it”. Roll on tomorrow. What has been great to see as well is what a natural you are on there. Confident in your own talent but so generous with the others... a born TV star

Brilliant chemistry with those two, really enjoy watching them.

Well done tonight getting closer maybe your pudding will do the trick good luck tomorrow ๐Ÿ‘

Perfect Gentleman , also calm cool and collect and saved the best for last

I really think she likes him. She is so funny and Hywel responds well to her ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I think Susan is a great addition as well. Good luck Hywel

Loved the pirate theme. I'm not sure if Hywel is aware he comes from a line of Welsh sea captains. His Nain and my mum were sisters ๐Ÿ™‚

Good luck for tomorrow. You’re making Wales proud x

Aww gutted you come second tonight Hywel well done thou

We are so hoping you get through xx

Hywel will be disappointed to come 3rd in the starters for his Legend of Twrch Trwyth.   All his dishes were delicious as we were fortunate enough to test them all, so we are still hopeful that he gets to the banquet with one of his remaining courses. 

Watch the fish course final tonight at 8pm on BBC2.

Would love to try that dish. Please put it on the menu when you reopen, it was clearly delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹ the judges loved it.

Hywel did well onwards and upwards good luck for the rest of the dishes

So close between the top three, I thought... fingers crossed for tonight.

All the best for tonight!

He was unlucky indeed, but also so fortunate to do so well with the starter dish, at his 1st time of being in the competition, well done Hywel Griffith laaaaa, doing n.wales so proud. Roll on the pirate ship I say, thats a winner for sure.... and the pudding....

He was unlucky it looked delicious

Hywelโ€™s first dish on tonightโ€™s #greatbritishmenu is inspired by the legend of King Arthur, with King Arthurโ€™s stone situated not far from our restaurant on the Gower. 

โ€˜King Arthurโ€™s Peacock Pieโ€™, a medieval feast inclusive of a sword being pulled out of a stone!

Last restaurant we ate in, for the 4th time, before the lockdown...spoke to Hywel about the show but he gave nothing away, obvs!! will be back next March for another visit ๐Ÿ‘

1st meal out after lockdown Dianne Stephenson x

I thought his fish dish was fantastic... I’m so looking forward to going back to the Beach House when all this is lifted... it has to be one of my most favourite restaurants ๐Ÿ‘

First thing we will do when allowed is to head across Gower to breath out a heavy sigh of relief and breath in those incredible aromas... In the meantime tonight Lee Evans and I will be riveted to the TV watching Episode 2. Go Hywel you can do this!!

Congratulations Hywel Well done!

What a start for Head Chef Hywel Griffith on tonightโ€™s #greatbritishmenu. His starter dish is inspired by the Legend of Twrch Trwyth, where he served a pigs cheek, with an onion puree & pickled pear.

Big thank you to Rodney Bender from Innovative Glass in Clydach for the embossed clocheโ€™s which were wonderful.
