Graham Coombs left this review about The Queens

Town pub retaining two bar layout with public bar one side and lounge the other, plus an outdoor area at the back. The interior has a fair amount of woodwork with a good traditional feel. Three handpumps offer a changing range of beers judging from the array of pump clips over the bar: at time of visit being 6X, Evan Evans Cwrw and Jemima's Pitchfork from Glamorgan. Pleasant enough.

This is a pub that has been GBG listed for donkeys years and in fact I'm sure I came here on my only other visit to Carmarthen over 35 years ago. It's an old school pub with a choice of two doors as you enter. I opened the right hand one and decided it was too noisy so took the left door.
This was a carpeted room with wood panelling so I assume it was the lounge bar. There were two prominent televisions showing horse racing.
The bar has three hand pumps which had Wadworth's 6X, Sharp's Atlantic and Celt Silures. I thought this was a dull choice for a long-standing GBG pub but it's probably down to being owned by Punch Taverns. I went for the Silures which was in good nick.
If this is CAMRA's top pub in Carmarthen then I won't be returning.
