Café Chameleon bar and Café

Housed in the old Gough Arms Pub,  they are a cafe in the daytime (where you can also have a pint or just a coffee) & a village pub in the evening (where you can also have a meal or bar snack until 9:30 or an end of the evening coffee). They love music, so there is always something playing on their sound system as well a 1st Saturday of the month Open Mic & 3rd Saturday Folk Music Session. they have cask ales, craft beers & draft Guinness & they think they make the best coffee in the Swansea Valley! Their menu includes home-made cakes & an unusually good choice of Vegan, Vegetarian & Gluten-free options. They serve food from when they open at midday right through to 9:30 & take bookings from 6:30 pm. They are at the edge of the Diamond park so ideal for walkers & cyclists.

Diamond Park

In between River Tawe Holiday Apartment and Cafe Chameleon is Diamond Park, a former coal mine which has now been reclaimed, acording to local hearsay it was called diamond because the coal that used to be found there was very hard.  It is now owned by the town council. Just beyond it is Wern Plemys a Nature Reserve managed by Brecknock Wildlife Trust.


The views from the top of the park are spectacular and it is well worth the walk up.
