A very warm welcome to Tafarn Morlais

Tafarn Morlais was formerly known as The Smiths Arms, which has occupied the village of Llangennech for decades. We are a family run business, operating a good honest, traditional community pub with a traditional freshly served food menu, served 7 days a week.
All our meat and produce is locally sourced within a 10 mile radius of the pub!

We are open 7 days a week from 12 noon. The original part of the building started its life as a blacksmith’s centuries ago, and was developed into a pub over the years. The pub has a large car park, and we welcome all pre-booked coach parties. During the Winter Months we are proud to have our open log fire burning within our front bar area, where you can eat and drink in a cosy warm environment.
We have a 5 Star Food Hygiene rating and also hold a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.
We are pleased to accept all major Credit & Debit Cards (except American Express).

"The Best By Far"

Harvey, Ammanford, Carmarthenshire

Wine is bottled poetry
Alcohol may be mans worse enemy, but the bible says - Love your enemy!
A drunken mans words, are a sober mans thoughts!
"Beer" - A temporary solution to everything!
It only takes one to get me drunk, the problem is, I'm not sure if its the 8th or 9th!
When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading!
