Local Pubs

Bridgend Inn

Constructed in 1786 this is the main public house in the village centre.

Lamb & Fox, Pwll-du

The Lamb and Fox is situated on the top of the Blorenge mountain, in Pwll-Du, above Govilon. It is frequented by locals, walkers, mountain bikers, and cavers visiting the nearby Ogof Draenen (cave of thorns) after a long day underground. The pub has a wonderfully friendly atmosphere, run by Morian and Cheryl Lewis, and serves good beer on tap and a great selection of bottled ales. An open fire always welcomes the weary walker. And the walking is great, with a fabulous mixture of wild countryside and old industrial history. Its not easy to find, but as one of the highest pubs in Wales its well worth the effort. Sunday lunches are fantastic value. To contact the pub call 01495 790196
