Murenger in the Telegraph

Newport's very own 'Haven in a Superpub Ghettto', the famous Olde Murenger House has made it into the Famous Grouse Famous pub list in the Daily Telegraph.
The Sam Smith's owned pub and CAMRA Good Beer Guide regular has been a haunt of mine for years, I can remember the days of Musuem Ale (bring it back Humphrey!) and still pop in regularly now as it is the best pub in the City Centre.
The Murenger House was one of the first pubs I ever wrote about on this blog, way back in 2007 and the post can be found here.
Other Welsh pubs featured in the Famous Grouse list are:
Black Boy Inn, Caernarfon

Located in Caenarfon Castle, The Black Boy Inn is a cosy and popular pub.

The Golden Cross, Cardiff
The Golden Cross is famed for its spectacular interior and the exterior is also rather impressive.

The Neuadd Arms Hotel, Llanwrtyd Wells

Come here to enjoy their Heart of Wales Brewery beers and watch the World Bog Snorkelling Championship.

The Packet Hotel, Cardiff Bay

The Packet is one of the last remnants of the old Cardiff docks.

The Royal Oak Hotel, Roath

Built in 1896 or earlier, The Royal Oak has a boxing ring on one of the upper floors, with boxing photographs covering the bar walls.

Ye Olde Bull's Head, Beaumaris

Ye Olde Bulls Head is a historic Welsh pub, having been visited by Charles Dickens, and furnished with an original ducking stool and antique weaponry.

Well done to Brains for getting three of their pubs in the list - Packet, Royal Oak and Golden Cross.
