Very attentive staff and very good food too. Big portions. So do not order too much. Piping hot and great tasting food. Extremely welcomed from a cold and wet Brecon Beacons. My 4 year old went wandering to the bar counter and came back with milk and extra mint chocolate from different servers. Obviously good with young children and adults;... More

This was my first visit and it did not disappoint. The staff were lovely, a few people on our table wanted to know what the rugby score was and a member of staff from the bar kept informing us of any score changes as the game went on, and was happy to do so! The food was also superb and... More

A group of us Somerset-types stayed in the village on a walking weekend and ate here on the Friday night (25.11.16). The food (we had three courses) and service were excellent and the wine (Merlot) was good and served at the right temperature (hoorah!). All-in-all, a very worthwhile destination. Clive

Met here for a family get together (a very large group) for Sunday lunch. The food, staff and the whole ambiance was excellent. Rob and Lisa have created a lovely homely atmosphere and with Robertos help this village pub will surly attract people from far and wide. Will we return again - YOU BET,

We walked up Pen Y Fan through sun, snow and rain then down to the pub for a late lunch. 7 adults and 6 children running very late but they kept the kitchen open for us. A great pub and a fantastic team who pulled out all the stops for us. Food was very good and beer was excellent. Doom... More

The white swan is a little gem tucked away in the Welsh valleys. I recently visited this pub and restaurant for a surprise 50th birthday meal. What a stunning place. The staff couldn't do enough for us and the food was amazing! I definitely recommend the Pen y fan burger for those with a bigger appetite. Even if you're on... More
