Yr Hen Efail - The Smithy in Talley (village shop)


Welcome to The Smithy in Talley. This iconic building, comprising the old smithy and forge, is centrally located in the village and the two parts straddle a stream. This wonderful old building has huge potential and we feel it deserves a sympathetic restoration, so we have big plans for it and are currently in the process of converting it into a tearoom, a shop and a community centre.

There is a but! It is taking more time than we anticipated to get through the planning process and, being determined to get started, we are setting up the shop in pop-up form, located in the cabin next to the Smithy. The cabin will supply takeaway coffee, fresh foods, essentials and some surprises and will be open five days a week initially, closed only on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

So drop by for a coffee, pick up some essentials or simply come for a chat. We’ll be happy to see you!

Opening hours

We open on Saturday, April 2nd at 10am and we’ll be open five days a week to start with, seven days when we get established.

Monday-Friday 7.30am - 5.30pm
Saturday 8.00am - 5pm
Sunday 10.00am - 4pm

We're open!

It's official, Talley's got a shop again! Many thanks to everyone who showed up today (Saturday April 2nd) and looking forward to see everyone who hasn't made it yet soon :-)

A special thanks to Marged Bowen, chair of the Talley Community Council, for officially opening the shop this morning.
