'Go to the Brown's, buy a Felinfoel and ask for me, they know where I live...'
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.
Brown's has 15 en-suite rooms refurbished to a superb standard (‘Cool factor 9/10’ - The Times), home-cooked pub grub, local ales, Penderyn Whisky (check out their new 'Dylan' Icons Of Wales Special Edition single malt), wi-fi, car-parking, meeting room, library and the ‘dartboard’ story. Fans of literature and whisky might want to check out our special Liquor, Literature & Laugharne 2 night deal. (For other special deals please click the button at the top left of this page.)
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.
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.
