Fantastic refurbishment planned - 

An impressive refurbishment will convert the Queens Hotel Carmarthen into a premium drinks-led, high-street pub. Inside, the pub will be redecorated but in keeping with an all-new look and feel. Other upgrades throughout the pub such as refurbished seating areas, improved toilets and the installation of a new bar servery will give the pub a much more premium feel.

Outside the pub, we will add external street access to the walled courtyard garden.  The entire outdoor area will receive a full redecoration, including new lighting and signage.

Community focused

The Queens Hotel is located in the country town of Carmarthen.  The pub itself is situated in the middle of the town centre, which is a vibrant area full of bars, pubs, and restaurants.  It’s an area of significant history with the Queens Hotel sitting next to remains of a 17th Century coach house stables.  Carmarthan is a market town and has been since Roman time.  It currently has an indoor market that is open 6 days a week along with an outdoor market on Wednesday’s and Saturday’s.  The town also benefits from hosting a Famers Market on the first Friday of every month which is a big draw for visitors and locals to the area.comes to town and on the first Friday of each month the farmers market draws local and visitors alike.

A pub business with potential

The refurbishment and reopening of the Queens will add an exciting new element to the high street.  The new operator will be able to build a reputation as one of the best places to meet friends, family or colleagues for a drink. It will also allow people to enjoy watching key sporting events on one of it’s three TV’s.  The new décor, walled outdoor area and a welcome range of premium drinks will make this pub stand out over the competition. All we’re looking for is the right operator who understands the dynamics of a high street pub and ideally has knowledge of the local area.
