Browns Hotel in Laugharne was a favoured watering hole with the Welsh poet. It has been closed for five years but is now set for a new lease of life as a boutique hotel - and will have the makeover in time for the centenary of its most famous customer's birth.
The current owner has been awarded £230,000 towards the refurbishment of the Grade II listed building - with the aim to return it to how it would have looked in Thomas' 1950s heyday.
