We booked for about 10-12 people and were made most welcome. We all enjoyed our visit and found the guys to be informative and entertaining. There are many interesting artefacts at the museum. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable trip.

A wonderful experience,owner Simon so friendly ,wonderful knowledge,interesting and he made us so welcome.Took so much time to tell us the background information and took us back to the 1940's. The memorabilia within the tin shed and beyond is amazing. we want to return and hopefully next time can enjoy the music and atmosphere at an evening event.

One of Laugharne's best secrets. Great staff and family friendly venue. They have cool music events folk/americana/country/blues. Always have good beers and ales available. With vintage and wartime memorabilia its a MUST if you're in the neighbourhood.

Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Patient with brother in law who asked many questions too. Easy access from the church car park or enjoy a stroll through Laugharne.
