Built probably in the early C19 as a public inn in an isolated position to serve travellers on the Llynfi valley road. In 1875 it was known as the Nicholl Arms, named after Sir John Nicholl, MP and industrial entrepreneur of Merthyr-mawr.
Roughcasted and whitewashed over stone, with a slate roof. Two storeys, 3 bays. Symmetrical elevation with rendered end stacks and an outbuilding added after 1875 at the upper, W, end. Central framed and boarded timber door with a narrow plain overlight. Twelve-paned sash windows without horns, set in surrounds painted black. A large panel over the front door carries the name. A later C20 restaurant extension with a flat roof extends to the rear.
Interior modernised, but beams representing the former cross passage from the front door remain. Stone gable fireplace.
Included as a building retaining externally the character of an early C19 roadside inn.
