About the Pub

Under the looming shadow of Caernarfons imposing castle lies the self-proclaimed smallest bar in Wales - note it does not claim to be the smallest pub in Wales. As a business it is part of the popular Caffi Maes on Castle Square but for this bar you go around the corner to where a narrow entrance gives access to a charmingly intimate bar. While it does indeed occupy a small area it is deceptive in that it leads to another longer room on a lower level with upper floors where the caffi operates. The bar itself looks as though it has existed for decades, maybe much longer, rather than being a fairly recent (2014) contrivance. There is plenty of exposed stonework, a small fireplace, and dark wooden furniture of different styles that give it a well lived-in feel. Inevitably there are pictures of the great castle on the walls. While there is a TV, this thoughtful creation, if only by its size, is likely to bring people together in conversation over a pint of a local brew. Handy for the Welsh Highland Railway and other local attractions.
