Carreg Coetan Arthur is the name of a neolithic dolmen near Newport in North Pembrokeshire, Wales.[1]

Carreg Coetan Arthur dates from around 3000 BC and is the remains of a Neolithic burial chamber (also known as a quoit).

The remains consist of a 4-metre-long capstone on smaller supporting rocks. It would have originally been earth covered, but this has eroded away.

The site is managed by Cadw and it is a scheduled ancient monument.
