The Ystalyfera Arms ('Pig') has some unusual pub room names: the lobby has 'Hall' on the door as you enter. On the left, two small rooms labelled 'Smoke Room Glasses Only' and 'Smoke Room' now have a wide gap in the wall to join them and the rear door is no longer in use. This drinkers’ pub built in 1830 has 'Bar' on the door on the right which leads to the small public bar that retains its original bar back (at least the top section); the bar counter is old but has a new top and in 2004 tiles were added over the old wooden frontage. However, both have been shortened by a few feet in recent years; other 1960s fittings include a tiled fireplace and fixed seating.
