“High-quality ingredients, deftly cooked to delicious effect” is typical of the high praise often evident in feedback on Stephen Terry’s restaurant-with-rooms: a stop-off, en route to the Brecon Beacons. More sceptical reports, though, feel the food is merely “OK”, and there’s also the odd gripe about “chaotic” service.

Stephen Terry’s rural restaurant-with-rooms – nominally a country gastropub, but far more stylish than that implies – is one of the best-known dining destinations in Wales. Most reports applaud cuisine that “shows real finesse” (“fantastic food from local ingredients”) but its ratings still suffer from one or two minority reports of a disappointing all-round experience.

Mixed feedback again this year on Stephen Terry’s rural gastropub-with-rooms: one of Wales’s best known culinary destinations. For the majority of reviewers, its “well-sourced and accurately cooked dishes” make it “the top choice in the area”; but for a sizeable minority it’s “such a disappointment, having waited for ages to make a special trip”.

Stephen Terry’s rural gastropub-with-rooms remains one of Wales’s best-known destinations. The feedback it inspires remains a tad uneven (one or two report “distinctly underwhelming” meals), but the majority laud “consistently fantastic food from local ingredients”, and claim that they “were made to feel special even though the restaurant was busy”.
