Welcome to The New Three Mariners Inn a friendly, characterful, tastefully modernised, "pub-with-rooms". Built in the 18th Century and situated in the heart of Laugharne, Carmarthenshire - famously home to Dylan Thomas - The New Three Mariners is also a great hub from which to explore the wonderful West Wales area with its celebrated coastal path, countryside, castles and beaches.
Bar and Restaurant
The spacious airy seaside town bar at The New Mariners Inn has a lovely mix of the old and the new. There are wood beams, original features, sailing artifacts, slate and wood floors, works by local artists and a log-burning stove.
The rooms at The New Three Mariners Inn have recently been refurbished to a very high standard and three have views overlooking the fine Georgian buildings on King Street and Market Street.
Laugharne has always had a timeless quality. Stand on the foreshore and look out across the estuary. See the heron, the egrets and the curlews; a place for birdwatchers, anglers and walkers, as well as those who want
Welcome to The New Three Mariners Inn
We offer comfortable B&B in the rooms above the bar, tasty bar meals (from £7.50) and an excellent range of reasonably priced beers and spirits. 'The Mariners' is a lively local bar and has regular live music, a quiz on Sundays, and a large heated smoking area situated in the ruin of the 'Old' Three Mariners across the road.
Laugharne itself is a town on the Taf estuary described by Dylan as, ‘…the strangest town in Wales… a mild beguiling island of a town… there is nowhere like it anywhere at all.’ He wrote in 1934 that, ‘…now a piece of sun comes out again. I am happy… in another half hour the ‘Three Mariners’ will have undone their waistcoats. I shall drink beer with the portreeve, & no scrimping pussyfoot shall say me nay.’
Whilst thousands of literature fans (Kingsley Amis was also a regular), tourists and day-trippers visit the pub every year, The New Three Mariners Inn is still very much a 'local'.
