Brown’s Hotel, 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 and many others have made their way up the three stone steps to the bar.
Brown's Hotel in Laugharne
Each room has a personality of its own and no two rooms are alike. We take great care to create an incomparable visitor experience and each room has its own 1950s themed retro-styled furniture and tastefully designed colour scheme, which, together with our specially commissioned wall art showing lovingly re-created scenes from the post-war period, help to create a real 'Wow' factor.
Food & Drink
The Penderyn Restaurant has now opened and reflects the close relationship between the iconic hotel and the award-winning distillery in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons. The decor reflects the distillery colours, namely black and gold and the chef, Nick Perry has conjured up a delightful menu with the focus on good local ingredients.
A stay in Laugharne comes with a few opportunities which we at Brown's class as unmissable moments! They are the experiences which, should time allow, you must try to enjoy. They're all free or very low cost, memorable and will all get you talking to the locals and benefiting from their inherent good humour, helpfulness and interest. What's more, they're all a short walk from Brown's. Enjoy!
