Loungers expected to open at Carmarthen's historic Guildhall

Café/bar/restaurant group Loungers is in pole position to open a new venue at Carmarthen's historic Guildhall, after councillors gave the green light to the redevelopment of the site.

The Guildhall was a courthouse up until 2016 but will now be transformed into a town centre bar and café by Swansea-based developer Nextcolour, as part of a £1m project.

Loungers is believed to have reached heads of terms on an agreement to operate the new venue in the Grade-I-listed, 18th century building when it reopens, although no deal has been finalised.

Planning permission was granted, subject to approval from the Welsh government's historical organisation Cadw, according to www.walesonline.co.uk.

While permission has been granted to redevelop the first floor of the building, the former crown court on the second floor will not be altered.

The venue is due to open later this year.

Loungers declined to comment.
