Long-established gastropub (one of the first to be so-named) in a former cider mill on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park that’s renowned as a “reliable” bet for good food, and is currently on top form with “absolutely delicious” cooking from chef Nick Evans (ex-Northcote and Tom Kerridge’s Bull & Bear). His menu of seven starters and seven mains changes almost every day; ingredients are mostly local and the fish, from Cornwall, “is always perfectly cooked”.

With a “lovely setting” in a “very relaxed” former cider mill betwixt the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park, this rural gastroboozer-with-rooms “never fails to impress”. Over many years, the food (featuring Welsh beef and lamb, plus game from local estates) has been extremely consistent here.

"The service was impeccable and considerate. A flawless meal with excellent selection of brilliant value wines with a lovely welcoming, characterful ambience. If only there were a lot more rural gastopubs working so hard on all aspects of the dining experience."
