About the Pub

As the name suggests can be found near to the towns railway station, evening arrivals can produce a sudden surge as the tavern is the first port of call on way into town. The Tavern is single room establishment at the end of a terrace no larger than 2 rooms in a Victorian working class terraced house combined. Taff the current landlord has been here for 35 years and the pub has been in the Good Beer Guide continuously since 1996 possibly the smallest establishment to merit an entry UK wide? Despite its small size it has been one of the mainstays of real ale in Mid Wales for many years with three hand pumps always on, a tv shows sporting events, the jukebox is well patronised. The pub runs successful dominos and darts teams. The fire can make the place very warm allegedly a plot by the landlord to make customers drink more or so say the regulars! However to the right of it on the wall is a list of pubs/hotels that once existed in the town this is well worth a read as the current day town boosts 20 licensed pubs and clubs for its 12,000 population marvel at why it needed another near 50 in years gone by!
