The Ystalyfera Arms ('Pig') has some unusual pub room names i.e. the entrance lobby is the 'Hall' and two small rooms (now joined) are labelled 'Smoke Room Glasses Only' and 'Smoke Room'. The small public bar (prosaically titled 'Bar') retains its original bar-back (at least the top section); the counter is old but has a new top and tiles now cover the wooden frontage. However, both have been shortened by a few feet in recent years; other 1960s fittings include a tiled fireplace and fixed seating.
