The Cricketer's Arms

In November 2019, the Mechanics’ Institution Trust (MIT) signed the lease for the Cricketer’s Arms which is located on Emlyn Square. The aim is to renovate this former pub in order to provide a retail unit and a visitor centre on the ground floor, and six up-market bed and breakfast rooms on the upper floors. 

The plans are being developed and funding is currently being sought. 

The refurbishments are expected to start by the end of 2020 once the necessary planning and listed building consents have been gained.
