The Dolaucothi Arms BnB

The Dolaucothi Arms

Croeso! Welcome to The Dolaucothi Arms. Your friendly village pub in the heart of the Carmarthenshire Countryside.

Our large beer garden stretches out behind the pub with views over the valley and the rivers Cothi and Twrch to which the pub has fishing rights.  Enjoy a pint at one of the benches on the lawn, meet our friendly hens, or take a look (from a safe distance!) at our bee hives – dogs are very welcome, however we would be grateful if they were kept on the lead, in the interest of the chickens and our pub cat, Lily.

There’s real ale and cider on the pumps from great Welsh breweries like Evan Evans, Wye Valley and Purple Moose; as well as a carefully chosen wine list from European vineyards. Menus are driven by great local produce and everything is made from scratch in our kitchen.

Our changing dinner menu evolves as ingredients come into season, working with our fantastic suppliers to make the most of what is good now, and you’ll find plenty of old favourites on our bar menu, too.  We pride ourselves on old fashioned hospitality so service is relaxed and informal, and we love a good chat. 

In 2016 we were thrilled to be included for the first time in the Michelin guide and we also appear in by the AA pubs guide, Good Pub guide and Alastair Sawday’s Pubs and Inns guide.

We are at the heart of the National Trust’s Dolaucothi Estate, in fact our grade two listed building and many of the cottages and tenanted farms close by are owned and conserved by the Trust (you can spot them by their red and white paintwork).

There are well marked trails across the 2,500 acre estate of wooded hills and sweeping valleys right from our door, and we’re only a fifteen minute stroll from the Dolaucothi Gold Mine, so you can earn that pub lunch!
