Possibly the smallest pub in Wales, yet it still has two separate rooms. It has a tiny bar on the left with a slatted wood counter at least 30 years old, simple shelves for a bar back, which look older, dado panelled walls with benches attached, and a hatch on the right. An even tinier lounge on the right has some old panelling around the fireplace but the fixed seating is post-war. A famous rugby pub, it has lots of memorabilia on the walls including signed photos by international players such as Ray Gravell. On the side of the three-storey mid-19th-century building it is recorded that a team sponsored by the pub won the World Tournament Rugby Sevens in 1989 held at Amsterdam. Note the trap door in the floor, which is how the beer is dropped into the cellar. Between the two rooms are staircases - down to the toilets and up to private quarters. A number of famous actors including Richard Harris, Oliver Reed, and Richard Burton drank in the pub while filming ‘Under Milk Wood’ in nearby Laugharne.
