A POWYS pub is under new management again and reopens today, after the previous landlord lasted just over a month.

Osian Long takes over as Builth Wells boozer The Lamb’s third landlord in just a matter of weeks. He announced that the Broad Street pub reopens today (November 7) at 4pm – with a free pint promised to anyone who walks in and says ‘Cig oen’ (lamb in Welsh) on Tuesday to a member of staff.

After enjoying a resurgence when it was reopened by Luke Dewinton in March 2022, following many years closed, Luke left his role in September.

Aidan Conlin, whose family run fellow Builth boozer the Barley Mow, took over on September 19, but falling trade meant the pub closed again after a little more than a month.

In a post that went up on The Lamb Builth Wells Facebook page earlier today, Osian said: “I would like to firstly introduce myself as your new landlord to The Lamb, Builth Wells.

“My name is Osian and I am so excited that I can finally announce this. I've finally settled into this lovely community after moving away from my previous pub in Cardiff.

“Everyone has made me feel so welcome, I am so grateful. I cannot wait to meet everyone, both new customers and present, so please don't be shy and pop in and say hi.

“As a way of thanking everybody for being so welcome, I am going to be buying every customer their first drink if they come in today and say 'CIG OEN' to myself or the bar staff. What else could make today any better!?”

Osian said the pub would reopen at 4pm and advised the pub’s social media fans to keep an eye out for an “exciting post” later on in the day.
