This famous traditional
pub is fitted all around with rich dark panelling, with black leather sofas and seats. The floor has been re-tiled in keeping with the pub age.
Every Wednesday is a Welsh
night, emphasising the pro-Welsh nature of this friendly and welcoming pub.
Featured in the Camra
beer guide, and in a good food guide, the pub offers a variety of food
, including a Welsh menu.
The name is taken from the Mascot of the Royal 41st regiment of Wales. They carried a live goat on the Russian front line in the Crimean War. The goat survived the War and was introduced to Queen Victoria back in England.
Originally simply called the Goat, the pub was renamed the Bluebell in 1813, and finally the Goat Major in 1995.
Until fairly recently, upstairs was open as a bar.
The pub offers a range of Goat Major memorabilia.
Probably early Victorian, it was refurbished in 2003.
