Whenever we visited Carmarthen we always had lunch at Caban y Dderwen. Invariably we had to queue for a table but the staff and quality of food were excellent. Sadly when we called there a few days ago we found it closed and I have been informed that it is closed permanently a shame a real loss for Carmarthen.

Good sized portions and lovely home made food. The desserts cabinet is a wonder to behold. Not good for the waistline!

My wife and I visited the restaurant on Aug 15 2014. We often visit Carmarthen and we call in here for lunch or Coffee. This is how a place should be we sit down and within minutes along comes a smiling face to take your order. It has that old world charm that is missing in most places these days.... More

A very good menu with lots of delicious choices- you'll find it hard to choose! Good home-cooked meals and extremely friendly staff. Really helpful with our young baby. A must for anyone in the area!

We recently visited this restaurant on a day out in Carmarthen. It was a little out of the way but well worth the effort to find. We were served promptly by friendly and helpful staff. The food was gorgeous. I had the lasagne and my partner had the chicken and leek pie. Both were well made with good quality and... More

I came here for a meal with my husband and enjoyed. The food is homemade and tastes wonderful and the portion sizes are massive! The only downfall is you pay more as I guess you get what you pay for. Nice to do on special occasions but I couldn't afford to do it more than that. Overall lovely place to... More
