Accommodated for a birthday lunch on Mothering Sunday. 13 covers. Beers and wine flowed, food kept coming, the beef and the chocolate desert were perfect.

Thank you for a wonderful lunch. This is a great place to visit to eat, worth a detour.

It’s the nicest night out we have had in ages. Superb food, we ordered Pork belly, Fish and Lamb. We all cleared our plates, the food was fantastic. The Coffee and Walnut dessert was new one on me and was also fabulous.
The Owner was friendly and chatty, giving us a very warm welcome. It is a clean very well run pub, with B&B.
It is located in an outstanding location, to stay and tour the surroundings beautiful country side of the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains.
We happened to go a Friday night when a local Band was playing. Which made to this lovely evening. We will definitely be returning again and again. Mike

Had an amazing 3 course Valentines meal tonight. Couldn’t fault a thing. I highly recommend it. Atmosphere, service & food were all 5 star.

Lovely roadside pub with views and ambience and outstandingly warm welcome
from Jack and host Richard who with expertise of French vineyards offers a
wide varietal of excellent 'vins d'excellence'. The duck ranks with my best in
this region and the accoutrements of the plate beautifully presented. Two rooms
en sute for accommodation and we met a couple from Somerset who were most
impressed by the hospitality of the house. We shall re-visit. Really homely and
pleasant place to eat or to stay. PLarge [Fr Ed]
