Located just outside the town centre, when you visit The Thomas Arms you can expect to receive a warm Welsh welcome and excellent customer service. We are renowned for our superb home cooked food and a fine selection of accredited real ales.

People come from far and wide to dine at The Thomas Arms, thanks to the experienced kitchen team and friendly staff. The menu combines grills and pub classics and with great roasts on Sundays.

A range of award winning cask ales and premium draught beers are accompanied by wines from all over the world. Fresh coffees are also served from the bar and provide the perfect ending to any meal, or a great treat with a cake in the morning.

We have disabled access facilities throughout the restaurant area, allowing wheelchairs onto the varying levels across the ground floor. Access can be gained to the main lounge bar, restaurant and full function facilities with easy access toilets also available. There's even an easy-access lift outside the venue. Just give us a call to let us know you're coming and we'll have it ready for you.


Whether you’re looking for a relaxing afternoon or a day of adrenalin fuelled activities, there is plenty to see and do when you visit The Thomas Arms Hotel. Some of our favourites include; taking a trip to the Gower peninsular for a spot of surfing, spending a day at the races at Ffos Las racecourse, visiting the Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre to see some of the world’s most endangered birds or heading to the dry slopes at Pembrey Country Park.

Whether you stay for a night, or longer, there’s nowhere quite like The Thomas Arms to return to at the end of the day.


The Cask Marque Award is an accreditation which guarantees guests the perfect pint of cask ale, every time. All the cask ales on sale are tested twice a year by a qualified assessor for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste and every beer must reach the required standard in order for the licensee to pass the inspection. Mystery visits may be carried out at any time and feedback is invited from the public.

Cask Marque is an independent, non-profit making organisation formed in 1998 with the aim of improving beer quality in British pubs through the accreditation scheme, training courses on cellar management and the setting of industry standards through a series of beer quality charters, including cellar management, glass-cleanliness and line cleaning.

Over 10,000 pubs hold the Award and each one participates in the ‘World’s Biggest Ale Trail’. This allows drinkers to scan the Cask Marque certificates in the pubs using their phone and the more scans they make, the more prizes they win. Download the CaskFinder App to join the fun!
