About
The Brit Pub Cwmavon is a traditional real ale pub with a great warm atmosphere and quirky yet stylish decor. An intimate and elegant dining room perfect for a special occasion or somewhere to relax and have a good home cooked meal. With stone walls, flag stone floors, open fire, reclaimed wood bar from the original floorboards and doors this pub certainly has a story to tell. The tranquil beer garden over looks a river teeming with wildlife and there is accommodation for cyclists or weary travellers to the Afan Valley. The Brit is not just a pub, it's a destination.
