This is really a Top Class Place. Great beer with first class friendly service. Some wonderful beers available from the Bottle Shop. A Super Fantastic Vinyl/CD/Music shop upstairs. And looks like some great live music being held. An undiscovered gem, you must visit.

Been to a few gigs at The Parrot this year, great venue, friendly, chilled atmosphere and just such a cool venue. The music has been awesome. This place is a 'scene' in its own right, the nursery for the best bands in West Wales.

Really warm welcome, top cold beers in the fridge and music nice and loud and on tap. After the hustle and bustle of spoons etc this was fantastic, you must go here.

We had a really nice coffee and delicious welsh cakes at this authentic pub. They have a little shop with vintage clothes and accesories, second hand guitars and vinyl records (I've got my mum's Xmas gift already!!). The waitresses are very friendly too.

Hi Kath, we have regular live music (2-3 times per week) at The Parrot and we're hoping to open the café again soon. When are you thinking of visiting?
