I visited the Bull and Heifer with 12 friends and my wife as part her 60th birthday celebration weekend. We had differing meals (pre-ordered) all well cooked and presented that seemed to satisfy the whole party. We were served by very friendly and attentive front of house staff. Nothing was to much trouble thank you.

We had drinks and meals over 2 days when we were staying near by. All the meals were good and reasonably priced. Staff were helpful and friendly. They all made us welcome. Will use again when we are that way again.

Went here for Sunday Lunch to celebrate my Mum's Birthday and we were very impressed indeed with the quantity and quality of the fare on offer. Everything was cooked to perfection and wonderfully tasty. Extra veg? No problem, no extra charge! Drinks very reasonably priced and we left feeling replete but not overly stuffed. The staff were wonderfully welcoming and... More

We live in Montgomery in Powys, which is not actually that far away from Bettws Cedewain. Having eaten here with my parents a few weeks ago to celebrate my birthday, we ate here again this evening and found that the food and the service were every bit as excellent.

The Bull and Heifer is a small but vibrant little country pub in the heart of the village of Bettws Cedewain, near Newtown. It's a traditional black and white public house, with oodles of character and charm, where you are sure of a warm welcome, whenever you arrive. This family pub is a recent addition to the village, yet it's hard to believe that it hasn't been 'The local' for years...
