user reviews of the Wern Fawr Inn, Ystalyfera

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I was here in 2004 on a road trip with a university friend. We walked into a chatty room, only to have silence fall and eyes turn in our direction. At least, that's how my friend remembers it. We ordered a couple of the beers brewed on the premises, both with a Buddy Holly theme, and settled down in a corner.

We dispute what happened next. My friend said that everyone in the pub waited until we had our first drink of our beers, and that when we gasped - "Wow! That's brilliant!" everyone smiled, and came over and sat at our table and the whole evening turned magic. My memory is that the people in the pub were drinking and chatting amongst themselves as normal, and - as is the friendly Welsh way - at some point we started talking with our neighbours, and things just took off from there.

However it started, we had a blinding evening. The landlord and brewer, Will Hopton, took us down to his celler to show us the brewery. An entire family came over and sat at our table, and a man called Ian Jones ran over to his house to burn me a live copy of Spunk Rock by Swansea band Man.

We came out of that place having made firm friends, and with big grins on our face. Magic. One of those special times!

I'll be back in Swansea this weekend and fully intend on revisiting Wern Fawr.

Fascinating interior. A small one barrel micro brewery in cellar and lots of CAMRA awards!
