Happy Union Inn, Abbeycwmhir

Happy Union Inn, AbbeycwmhirThe Grade II listed Happy Union of stone and bricks is one of the oldest buildings in Abbeycwmhir, the small village located in the heart of Wales.  It may well have been an old drovers inn on the old route from Kington to Aberystwyth.  Close by stands the Cistercian monastery built in 1143 which is also the burial place for the last native Prince of Wales, Llywelyn Ein Llyw Olaf.

It is believed the name of the pub refers to the union between Wales and England in 1536 and the inn sign has a man riding on a goat with a mug of ale in one hand and a plate of cheese and bread in the other.  His hat is decorated with leeks. 

The publican in 1841 was Evan Williams who lived in the inn with his wife Mary and two of his children. 

Pool and darts played regularly at the inn.
