On a site once used to provide hydraulic power to the docks, Grade II-listed Sosban restaurant showcases authentic Welsh cuisine. This historic setting was transformed by Rugby stars Stephen Jones and Dwane Peel.

Sourcing ingredients locally, the Sosban menu changes daily, and might include starters such as potted pig with pickles and granary toast, or curried mussels. Popular main courses feature the likes of roast brill fillet with crushed potatoes and beurre noisette, while warm chocolate mousse and vanilla panna cotta are found on the dessert list.

A dedicated children’s menu is always available at Sosban restaurant, as is a Sunday lunch menu. Dominated by a 90ft stone dower, the airy, welcoming interior is filled with light and boasts bare brick walls.

Located on the south coast of Wales, Sosban is a 13-minute walk from Llanelli Train Station.

    We had a fantastic evening, the staff were great and couldn't be anymore helpful, food was outstanding the only little thing that's wasn't good was it was a bit cold in the restaurant but that's understandable with how big of a building it is and the time of year apart from that it was a great night and I'll definitely be back.

    The beef was so tough we could not eat it, soup and veg were very good.

    Great atmosphere. Friendly, helpful staff. I had the Camembert Share which was good. The Lamb rump was nicely cooked but a little grizzly ( they however wrapped the remains very prettily in a swan tin foil wrap so my dog was happy). No room for dessert but they looked good as they passed in particular the cheese board.

  • (((** 30 December 2016 by Brian Rees from Llanelli

    Lovely restaurant, but food choice was limited. Took a relative there for his 50th birthday and is a steak lover, but both the Rib Eye and Chateau Briand were not available. Therefore very disappointed. Ended up with a traditional Christmas dinner. However, food quality is good and value for money. We went in at 7pm on Christmas Eve and we were the last ones to leave at 8.30pm! No atmosphere and very disappointing for Christmas Eve!

    Service also needs to be improved, although not busy had to ask for water 3 times and wrong size glass of wine brought to table.
