The Iorwerth Arms is a community owned and run pub that was saved from closure and demolition through community action in 2015. It is now a successful not for profit pub run by unpaid Directors as a community hub for the Bryngwran area. Since becoming a community owned pub – the last and only retail business in the village – the Iorwerth Arms has won a number of prestigious awards (Wales Start Up Award Finalist 2016, Welsh and British Best Rural Pub winner, Countryside Alliance Awards 2019 and Social Business Wales Awards 2021, Community Impact Winner).

 

Following a grant from the National Lottery, the Bryngwran Cymunedol is currently converting the pub outbuildings into Business Units thereby providing jobs and services for the village and surrounds. It is planned that the new units will provide a shop, hair dressing and beauty services and a café and restaurant with disabled toilets.
