Blue Anchor in 2004

Unfortunately the Blue Anchor Inn in East Aberthaw has caught fire again last weekend.

This is a great local pub with a huge amount of character.   The building dates from 1380.  It has caught fire a number of times in its history – a thatched roof and log fires don’t mix very well 🙂

Luckily this fire was not that bad and the pub has remained open.

The last major fire was in 2004 when the pub had to be shut for a number of months for refurbishment.  My photo shows the pub then surrounded by scaffolding.

The pub still retains its original feel and is well worth a visit for real ales and great food.
