Another one bites the dust

It came as a bit of a shock to see the Somerset Arms pub in Abergavenny shut, boarded up and the freehold for sale. I've been using this pub on and off for about 20 years and it was a regular in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. The 2-bar pub had a thriving trade and served good food. It was also a good community local and even had its own brewery back in the 19th century. The Somerset always supported local breweries and was a rare local outlet for beers from Cwmbran brewery. A sad loss to Abergavenny.

It's always sad, but regrettably all too common nowadays, to visit somewhere that you haven't been for a few years and find a pub that you once regarded as part of the scenery (even if you never actually visited it) to be closed and boarded or, worse still, vanished from the face of the earth.
