Pub in Morriston

Just before and in the early years of the second world war my Grandfather ran a pub in Morriston. My Mother (died 1993) recalls standing outside a chapel listening to the Orpheus Choir rehearsing - could that have been the Tabernacle? I see there is a pub across the road called the Crown, any history available? My Mother also told me Haile Selassie's body guards drank in the pub - Mr Salassie, she said spent the war somewhere near Morriston.
My Grandfathers name was Richard (Dick) Ballard. Any way to find the name of the pub?
