Four Welsh inns have become the latest members of the Great Inns of Britain.
The Bear hotel in Crickhowell, Castle hotel in Conwy (pictured), the West Arms in Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog and Wolfscastle Country hotel in Haverfordwest takes the total number of members in the group to 20.
Simon Heaton, owner of Shibden Mill Inn near Halifax, and chairman of the Great Inns of Britain, said: "The Great Inns of Britain is delighted to announce four more new members for 2015, all of which are of an exceptionally high standard and come with big reputations - they're great additions to the Great Inns collection."
Great Inns of Britain was established in 1996 by Sir Thomas Ingilby, owner of the Boar's Head in Ripley, North Yorkshire and the late Paul Whittome, who was the owner of the Hoste Arms at Burnham Market in Norfolk.
In 2013 co-founder Sir Thomas Ingilby stepped down as chairman after 17 years in the position.
