The Friends of Oriel y Parc

The Friends of Oriel y Parc has many shared interests with the St Davids Historical Society, and as such, we feel that it would be useful to our Members to be aware of the Talks that both societies hold. Each website will remind the other Society where information can be found about the next Talk.

‘A Brief Look at Ale House History & Names’

The development of the ale house from early medieval times until it became the public house of the 19th Century, with a glance at inns, dram shops and beer houses on the way. Much of this will be general, but where possible, reference will be made to south-west Wales and the differences between Welsh and English beer selling. We’ll conclude with origins of pub names and consider some in the St Davids area.
