I’w gôl, down at ein gilydd, - mae i ni
Ei gwmnïaeth beunydd.
Tafarn Sinc yw’r tafarn sydd
Yn aelwyd pob ymwelydd.

Welcome to our website

Tafarn Sinc is situated in the heart of the Preseli Hills in the splendour of the Pembrokeshire National Park. It is the highest licensed pub in Pembrokeshire located in the shadow of Foel Cwm Cerwyn in the rural hamlet of Rosebush.

The winding roads and lanes to Rosebush take you on a number of breath-taking scenic routes. Once you arrive you will see a railway platform with passengers ready to board the coming train. Surely it will soon arrive...

Tafarn Sinc has featured prominently in the social life of the area since its inception in 1876 as the Precelly Hotel. There have been several notable landlords. Peg Lewis reigned supreme for 52 years until 1991. Then followed by Brian Llewelyn and his family, when the present name was adopted, for a quarter of a century. Hafwen and Brian 'Bici' Davies were the mine hosts.

It’s reputation is known far and wide as the repository of the Pembrokeshire ‘wês, wês’ dialect and for its unique ambience of yesteryear nostalgia conveyed by the agricultural implements, the flannel shirts and flitches of real ham hanging from the ceilings. And not forgetting the castrating pincers and the sawdust strewn floors.

All modern day whims have been resisted. The charm of days gone by remains pungent. It can be felt on stepping over the threshold. It can be breathed in. It will surely leave an indelible impression that will make you want to return soon. Listen to the constant string of Welsh songs that will make you feel at home.

Enjoy the romance of the hills over a succulent meal. Have a thirst quenching drink following a walk across the Preseli ridge. Tafarn Sinc is the hearth of hiraeth. Do return for Sunday lunch. Dogs are welcome.

Re-launching our shares campaign
Our initial share offer was successful. We raised the necessary capital to buy Tafarn Sinc. However, we did not reach our goal of selling 1876 shares - a number chosen to commemorate the year the Precelly Hotel, as it was then known, was built. The campaign caught the imagination. We even attracted investors from all over the world. We are now re-launching our shares campaign ...more
