Welcome to The Brown’s iconic bar and boutique B & B
Brown's, built in 1752, is an iconic literary address, the social hub of Laugharne and the favourite watering hole of poet and writer Dylan Thomas, who famously left the bar's phone number as his own.
Following in Dylan’s footsteps President Carter, Burton & Taylor, Peter O’Toole, Charles and Camilla, Mick Jagger, Pierce Brosnan, Cerys Matthews, Rhys Ifans, Bruce Reynolds, Patti Smith, Elijah Wood, Sir Peter Blake and many others have made their way up the three stone steps to the bar.
In 2012 The Brown’s was renovated and refurbished to a very high standard, and now offers 15 luxurious rooms and a busy bar serving nibbles and snacks, real ale, a range of quality wines and Penderyn whisky. Live music is played in the bar every Sunday afternoon and monthly Poems & Pints night are regularly held. The Times gave Browns a 'Cool Factor' of 9/10 and it has recently been featured in The Telegraph, The Guardian, Tatler and The New York Times.
Laugharne has an ancient history, quirky customs, the ‘Laugharne Weekend’ literary festivals, a lively nightlife, estuary walks, a magnificent castle, the quirky Tin Shed Museum, the Dylan Thomas Boathouse, cafes and shops...and was once described as ‘...the strangest town in Wales’ by Dylan Thomas.
He wasn’t wrong. Come see for yourselves.
