Family run pub. Very welcoming. Excellent covid arrangements. Had 2 meals here this holiday. Both excellent. The first was Chicken and leek pie. Top quality ingredients. All home made. The 2nd was Sunday lunch. Roast beef was wow. Vegetables perfect. Salmon was served with stuffing and Yorkshire pudding which was a bit strange. Best to book for Sunday lunch. Highly recommended.

Lovely old revamped coaching inn type pub/restaurant/hotel. Staff very helpful & friendly & nice breakfast & evening meal menu with “specials board”. Food was very good & chips best I’ve ever had! Comfortable, immaculately clean rooms & bathrooms with replenished tea/coffee & toiletries each day. Central, for walking access to shops & places to eat. Downside, no parking & public car park next door needs a new ticket by 8am after free parking finishes. Rooms on the front as was ours, can be noisy. It was very hot & essential to open the window, but outside evening drinkers & morning traffic can be noisy. No croissants (on the breakfast menu) were available during our 3 night stay & breakfast service could be a bit slow if you were in a hurry. All in all, a very enjoyable & relaxed stay.

The Pub/Hotel is in the middle of Carmarthen and easy to find on the Sat Nav. The staff were very welcoming and =showed id to our room number 1 which was quite large and very clean and tidy. All facilities were there including a very small TV high up on the wall opposite the bed. The bathroom was well laid out and had a vet good shower, although the light switch was outside the bathroom which caused a bit of a problem if you wanted to switch it on in the dead of night. The main bedroom light had a glow when switched off at night which made it very comfortable, something I had not seen before and a good feature. Tea. Coffee and biscuits were available and update by room service. Great! Breakfast was served in the dining area and there was plenty of choice. The bacon was a joy to eat. The coffee was excellent, freshly ground and a good strength although a second cup was not offered. We had dinner there on both nights that we satay and again, the choice, a bit pub foody, was plentiful, with good starters, main courses that certainly pleased me, and a large choice of sweets. My choices were very good and well survived. My wife as disappointed in the sweet she selected, but that was the only problem we had. We drank beer from the bar which was very good and my wife had some bubbly one evening and lager the following. The service was very good and Olwain, the waiter/barman was particularly attentive and helpful, but all the staff were willing and helpful.

the accommodation was good, the room was clean, the window had secondary double glazing so was really quiet of an evening. the bed was 2 x 3 foot singles joined together to make a king size bed so plenty of room to sprawl out!. Staff were absolutely fabulous, nothing was too much trouble for them. The restaurant food was brilliant as was the breakfasts. We ended up having most of our evening meals in the restaurant and the beer was very enjoyable. The only minor downside was no parking but there is a pay and display around the corner which was free from 6pm to 8am each day. When you put some money on after 6pm then it rolls over to the next day so it's great to cover the breakfast period so you don't have to rush out and put more money on. We travelled to St David's, Pembroke, Swansea and Tenby. We really enjoyed Tenby and would recommend anyone to do a full day there, the beaches were great. By the end of our visit we felt like the staff were our friends and would welcome us back anytime. We will definitely book again if we decide to visit South Wales again.

Rose & Crown Carmarthen The service was very good and welcoming and the food we chose was amazing. Rarely do I make a fuss about the cuisine but the 2 chefs Rob and Rob produced a really notable mid-day meal for us. I asked to see him and as usual the artist was humble and modest about his works. We're currently in the middle of a record breaking heat wave so we chose a light lunch which comprised #Warm bread with olives and hummus. #Breaded brie wedges with cranberry. #Falafels with minted yoghurt. There were a further 3 to choose from from the 6 Grazing sharing boards. I would highly recommend The Rose and Crown in Carmarthen. Thank you very much for everything. The hotel is well appointed and the staff are most helpful where nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We'd certainly visit again if we're in Carmarthen again. The 2 chefs Rob & Rob produced absolutely fabulous meals.
