A late 18th.century drovers’ inn with three rooms including a characterful snug. The flagstone floored and beamed front snug with its inglenook fireplace including a bread oven and two antique settles is little changed since the inn's days as a resting place for cattle drovers It was extended in the late 19th.century with the arrival of the railway to Tregaron. The small lounge on the far left, with a flagstone floor, has a bar counter dating from c.1965 and bar back shelves possibly of similar date. Through a low doorway is the public bar at the rear with another c.1965 bar counter and bar back shelves, which replaced the original small counter on the opposite side of the room. In the hotel part there is an office/reception room, originally a private bar for the well-to-do locals that has a colourful Victorian floor and curved partition walls. To the left of the passage with an 'Old Worthington in Bottle' mirror there is a small dado panelled room to the left, and on the right a room with two tiled fireplaces that until 50 years ago was two small rooms.Update 2012: Pub is now closed with no indication it will reopen.
