Browns is one of many atmospheric pubs offering great food in Laugharne, today. It’s no surprise that the cast and crew of “Keeping Faith” sampled most of them. Honourable mentions go to The Three Mariners, Arthurs, The Ferryman and the Portreeve Tafarn.
In Laugharne, great food is not limited to the pubs. The Owl and the Pussycat Café has been offering homecooked food since 2000. At Poon’s Street Food you can enjoy traditional breakfasts in morning or wonderful Thai food in the evening – all served in an energetic and friendly atmosphere. And for something different, the local chippy, the Castle Fish Bar, offers cockles harvested from Carmarthen Bay.
