This “top-of-the-range gastropub” on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park has long been one of the most famous in Wales for good reason and is “always busy” as a result. “If only there were a lot more rural pubs working so hard on all aspects of the dining experience” – from “impeccable and considerate service” that creates “a lovely, welcoming, characterful ambience” to “flawless meals with an excellent selection of brilliant-value wines”. The menu changes daily with seven starters and seven mains showcasing meat from the lowland hills, vegetables from nearby Penpont and fish delivered fresh from Cornwall.

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.

“London food at Welsh prices” and a “great ambiance” (it’s set in a former cider mill) are the main draws to this veteran gastroboozer, praised for maintaining “consistently high standards year in, year out”.
