Forest Arms Visitors book circa 1900

With thanks to Cerith Lewis, who’s family ran the Pub in the 30s, we have been lent the old Guest Book. It contains lovely comments, poems, and pictures.

In those days The Forest Arms was well know as a Sporting Venue for its excellent fishing on the River Cothi. In fact when I left Wales after finishing School, my first job sat me in front of my new Boss.

First question ” so where in Wales do you live ?” Im used to people having no idea where Brechfa is. It turned out he regularly stayed in the Forest Arms for its fishing.

Who would have thought, 35 years later I would be buying it, refurbishing it and reopening it, after ten years of closure ; and then be typing this to share this lovely piece of written history.

Our Covid Rules :)

Masks must be worn until you are sat at your table. They can be removed once you have sat down. They must be put back on to go to the loo.

We must ask that you always book a table as we have to manage social distancing and cannot easily react, and space out non booked people. We have been very busy so this is really important.

We stop serving drinks at 10pm and must be closed by 10.20pm

Take aways, and pizzas are still available. Please pre order all takeaways so we can manage timings with Restaurant bookings.

Pizzas need to be ordered by 12 for dough prep purposes.

Stay safe, thanks to everyone for your support since reopening, it’s been great to see you all again ?
