Had Sunday lunch here recently. Can honestly say this was the best Sunday lunch I have had in a pub or restaurant. Loads of food. Great value for money. There were 8 of us at the table. Nothing was to much trouble 10 out of 10 all round.

What a fantastic place to stay, room's a little dated but that adds to the fact you're in the middle of a national park and what a beautiful national Park at that. Wayne the proprietor of the hotel could honestly not do enough for you. Please if you find yourself in Brecon and want a traditional no frills hotel but with all the service as if you're a local and friend give this place a try,Wayne it was a pleasure to stay with you 👍

Only went a couple times. One time didn't have any Ales. Which was disappointing. Room felt very empty and run down. We went back a few days later for food. Had Ale this Time the food was okay. Bit bland and dry.

Booked a last minute stay here for a hiking weekend. Would thoroughly recommend for location, service and price. Bar staff were genuine and friendly at check in, the landlady very nice and friendly. Everyone very flexible and accommodating. Food tasty and good value. Nice big clean room with plenty of space for our dog and a really big comfy bed - perfect after a days hiking. If you want simple, good value accommodation and food and service with a smile this is the place to come for your visit to Brecon.
