Writing this whilst gently recovering from an excellent afternoon and evening at The Brit’s real ale and cider festival. The decor makes it clear from the moment you walk in this pub that it very much blazes its own trail, one that sets it apart...More

Called into the Brit due to the fact that they offer a good range of vegan dishes on their menu. The food was lovely and the staff were very nice 👍 I will definitely call in again for some food and would highly recommend

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.
