Coast Restaurant team to launch Gower Peninsula beachfront restaurant

Plans for a new beachfront restaurant on the Gower Peninsula in South West Wales have been revealed by the team behind Coast restaurant and Grove of Narberth hotel.

This is the second coastal restaurant Neil Kedward and Zoe Agar are set to open, nearly two years after launching Coast restaurant in Saundersfoot.

The new restaurant, which will seat 60 in the dining room and a further 50 guests on the large terrace area, will overlook Oxwich Beach on the Gower peninsula, a short distance from Swansea, Kedward's home town

Kedward told The Caterer the team is still interviewing for head chef position and hopes to confirm an appointment this month. He said: "We have interviewed some outstanding chefs so far and have a couple more interviews next week.

He added: "We want a chef who will bring their personality to it. Just like at Coast, they will be given full autonomy over the menu. It is important to us that they have real ownership as it means the staff can really achieve things and we like to operate that way."

Food will also be sourced locally with fish landed on the beach below the restaurant, game sourced from the local Penrice Estate and Welsh lamb provided by local farmers on the Gower peninsula.

Kedward said he aims to hire predominantly local people and is aiming for between 15 and 20 full time equivalent staff.

The team is working with interior designer Martin Hulbert, whose brief is to bring a fresh new look to the restaurant property.

"We're hugely excited to be unveiling this new beachfront restaurant near my hometown Swansea later this year. Like many people, I have enjoyed many happy times on the Gower and it holds a special place in my heart. Our team will be taking inspiration from the fantastic local produce on the Gower and stunning coastal scenery," Kedward added.
