 Warm Welcoming Wonderful
Not having been to the General Picton before I was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful staff and warm welcome I received. I even booked a mothers day meal on the spot because I was that impressed. There aint many pubs of this calibre around so I would like to give a wonderful 10/10 for a great night and wonderful venue.

 great
my favourite pub in aberdare, always a friendly atmosphere. Internet jukebox with a massive selection of songs. Bar staff always greet you with a smile day and night, always willing to help out any way they can. In the town centre so good if you fancy going around a few pubs during the day or night. Good selection of drinks and a different real ale on each week. A number of tvs which usually show football or rugby matches and the owner cooks food when Wales play in the rugby 6 nations. Prices of drinks are not the cheapest around, but for what you get when you go to this pub they are defiantly worth it, locals are also friendly and often include you in their conversations if you are near them. Cannot get any better than this in the local area.

the best part of this pub is the owners cheerful and smiley personality and his willingness to go that extra yard to cater for his regulars,he never grumbles no matter how bad his day has been and never fails to impress with his snazzy dress sense and neck high wranglers.

 Service Rubbish
Four of us went there for a meal. Three meals came waiting for the forth. It came about 10 minutes late for us to find the meat was not cooked properly. When i complained the owner was no help what so ever. She just said what do you expect the meat here is cooked from frozen. So we left the meal and then left the pub.

Surly the money would be better spent fixing Jubilee Road than tearing down a good pub. I think it should be left for many more generations to enjoy it like we have. Just do it up make it look a little more inviting instead of putting a hideous modernised building there. At least give us some history to look back on!

As another young member of the society, i will agree that to make a place such as the sheps into a more modernised establishment is not the way to go. as a person who is always out, on the internet, and all up for the times a changing, i suggest if if we were to get rid of everything old then wat is going to be left of our history. There have been some people saying that the sheps maybe made into a cyber cafe or hotel loge place, my answer to that is if a main town such as Aberdare, full of young people can not make a cyber cafe of hotel type place work, then what makes people think that a small village such as cwmaman could. i think that the people in charge need to take a good long hard look of their surroundings and the surrounding areas such as Aberdare and Mountain Ash (who are much bigger), take note they tried it and FAILED, what make you different. This establishment is better off being referbished and kepted as a local pub and if anything modern is needed then i'm sure there is room within the cwmaman institute to fit it.


All in all keep the sheps the shep a GOOD old fashioned pub NOTHING MORE NOTHING LESS

yet again another great pub is in danger of being changed into something more modern im only 19 but prefer to be in the kind of pub the sheps is. modern pubs do have some advantages with certain drinks available, but i would not give up a pub with such a nice welcoming and comfy feel to it. in the valleys, its not the pubs that need modernising its the other buildings around the area. The Shepards Arms is history and along with other pubs in the aberdare area should be left as they are to continue making history.

 SHEPS!
Ahah! Another of the councils shot at corporating the valleys. See the only problem with this whole 'modernising the villages in the valleys' etc... Is that the god honest people who live here (like us) do not want to be modernised. Now the Sheps is a nice pub, its got a cracking clientèle as well as friendly bar staff. Its a nice place to sit down and enjoy yourself with people you know and talk to. Lets turn this around and look at Wetherspoons, by all means a nice place, but not a local by far. Sure I drink there a lot but it doesn't come quite as close to that homely feel you get in places like the Sheps. You know what I say... bollocks to this modernisation, keep the sheps and keep our heritage! Now hows that for censorship and sensitivity

In a day where you cant walk around the corner withou seeing a wetherspoons or 'trendy modern bar' why would anyone choose to lose a place like the Sheps (An allready dying breed) in favour of the two to a penny modern alternative. Money is spent on preserving key points of valleys culture and heritage every day, how is this any different? The sheps has been an important part of the social cuture and heritage of Cwm and should be treated espected accordingy!

Long live the Sheps!

the shepherds arms has always had a reputation of a traditional village public house, with a friendly atmosphere, warm welcomes and good traditional ale. i strongly object to the proposal of demolishing such a historical land mark within the village, when it could be given a chance to be renovated not pulled down and re-built as a modernised establishment/accomadation/car park/internet cafe/or any other pointless modernised facility which will most definately not benefit the community, but benefit the higher members of society in cwmaman who have lack of consideration towards the opinions and constant enthusiasm and effort of the working class within the village. the shepherds arms locals would most definately agree with myself and the other people who have left their opinions on this site.
also i would like to add that it has always been a good place for live music and gigs, thus this spirit of community should be kept alive not by ripping the place down but by helping us in the community come to a comprimise with the people who want it pulled down.

the shepherds arms has been my local for socialising and having a quiet drink for the last 3 years, before this, it has been my family's local for as long as my family has lived in cwmaman, and i find this is the only place within the community that i feel comfortable in to have a quiet pint with my uncle. it would be a huge loss to the village to see it knocked down in my opinion.
even people from outside the village who do not know the roads/ins and outs of cwmaman, instantly know, when given directions to the shepherds arms, where they are going in cwmaman.
there will be great uproar within the community if the sheps were to be knocked down, and we will not give up without a fight!

The day of the public house is in a dieing age, with every pub that closes a little bit of that community is ruined, lost for ever, memories knocked down and safe havens for friends within a community stolen from them! The Shepards Arms still stands proud in Cwmaman since 1851. It has lost none of it's traditional values, standards and morals. These days even in the beautiful relatively untouched countryside of such mining communities as Cwmaman there are choices to be made that weren't available many years ago, where do I want to shop? what take away do I want? etc. These are choices that we are blessed with these days, I CHOSE to drink in The Shepards Arms for it's traditonal publican values, these days everything is about improvement and progress, but what if we haven't finished with what we have yet? I love the Shepards Arms and in no way could any of these new Wetherspoons/ Nightclub/ Coffee lounge type establishments compete. There is not really a comparision in terms that they are two completely different things and one could NOT replace the other in some sort of compromise. The only thing these wetherspoon/ nightclubesque places have in common with the Wonderful traditional Welsh Pub is that you give money they give you alcohol. The Shepards Arms is the Best Pub in Wales because it's mine! That's how I feel and that's how all of us within' this tight community feel! Many memories cherished!

I also Agree that closing/knocking down Sheps is a bad idea. Its a piece of Cwm history! I've only been there a few times and every time I've stepped foot inside Sheps its always been a warm welcome and a nice place to have a drink. As Kirsty said its been used for generations, closing down a place like this cant not be replaced within the heart. Its part of the community and has been since 1851. Aernt there enough Modern pubs in Aberdare town just down the road, Which is walking distance. Sheps is a place where the community meets and is the heart of the community. A place like this could still be used for the years to come.

quiet pub, mainly locals, but great pint and one of the few pubs aroung that sells miller on tap. great pub for a quick one or a quiet one.

this pub is the only traditional pub left in cwmaman dating back on the census since 1851,
there has been discussion of closing this pub, knocking it down and building it into something else like a modernised bar and accomadation of some sort.

i as a member of the community and an 18 year old youth of the village, would be disgusted to see the only heritage of a friendly and traditional pub be wiped from our hearts let alone the people who have been drinking and socialising in this pub for generations such as my great grandfather, great uncle, mother and myself now i have come of age.

if the people who want it shut down can afford to have it re-built, surely they have the money to refirbish and keep it the same old sheps, not a mondernised esablishment which there is no need for in a traditional village such as ours.

if anyone agrees with myself and the rest of the community, then pop into the sheps and sign our SOS (save our sheps) petition asap, this would be much appreciated!

keep our heritage so that in years to come, younger generations of the village can enjoy the hisorical value of cwmaman, or what is left of it

 Without a doubt THE best pub in Mountain Ash
Since it reopened in May 2005, the Baileys has for me become THE only pub that matters in Mountain Ash. There's always a friendly atmosphere, theres a wide and varied selection of real ales, premium lagers, ciders, spirits and cocktails, the live entertainment and events are always great. Quiz on a Sunday is always great fun, and the food in the restaurant is absolutely stunning. Its the only pub I now drink in in town as being so spoilt by the quality of the drink in the baileys, you notice how badly run / watered down the drink is in the rest of the pubs. They should all talk note of the example set by the Baileys, and with the beer garden and function room yet to come.. this pub surely deserves to get a nomination for best pub in Wales at some point in the future!

I am interested in writing about the history and ghosts of dwellings in Porthcawl, and am wondering if you are able to help me out with my research. I would be so grateful if you could send me any information regarding the history and ghosts of your establishment so that I can record it in my work. My intention is to compile a book about my findings, and I believe that by making the information available to tourists and residents alike, it would increase the custom for your establishment.

The Colin has just been added to the menu at The Baileys and it is a meal not to be missed!
Named after famous beefcake Colin Charvis, this is a mega-burger that is not for the faint hearted!
Standing at four burgers, four pieces of bacon, two layers of cheese and a massive salad big, it is a feat in itself - plus it comes with chips if you are STILL hungry after that!

 This pub is closed and derelict.
This pub was extensively modernised in the early 70's and a pseudo-Spanish hacienda style adopted. It flourished throughout the 1970's as one of the first pubs in the Cynon Valley to do evening meals, when eating in pubs was still quite rare in the area. By the early 1990's it had secumbed to competition from other eating places and after a succession of failed landlords it closed in 2003. The building is now for sale.

 Best Pub in Aberdare
Aberdare is full of dingy, bad vibed and rough pubs with watered down pints. The Cam offers a great atmosphere (not 1 fight in my memory), quality music and a wonderful pint. The bar staff are fantastic. Its known as the student pub of Aberdare. Yet you'll find people of all ages there. This is a proper pub.

 Love it
This is the finest pub I have ever visited in the entire world.

The barman looks like Russel Crowe.
