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).

Tafarn Morlais following the lockdown

Just a note to let you know our plans for re-opening the Tafarn Morlais following the lockdown.
We will not be re-opening the external and garden areas on the 13th July 2020. The safety of our Pub Team and you is our most important concern and a huge responsibility.
There is a great deal to do to prepare for re-opening to implement new systems and processes and a need for the First Minister to issue absolute clarity on instructions and to confirm when pubs in Wales can re-open fully.

Without a date for a COVID 19 safe re-opening, we are working towards a target date of the 3rd August 2020, subject to the First Minister announcement.
While working on systems and processes that will keep us and you safe, everyone employed at the Tafarn Morlais are currently working on on-line learning, testing and certification, including Food Safety, Health & Safety, Allergen Awareness, Licensing Law and more, to be completed the week ahead of our re-opening.
We will all complete the ‘Ready to Serve Following Lockdown’ course and hold certificates endorsed by the Institute of Hospitality.
We are also working on a new menu, new drinks range and are refreshing the internals of the pub.

Once we know when we are allowed to re-open fully, confirmation will be posted here.
We can’t wait to see you! Stay safe and take care.

"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!

Do what you love, love what you do
