Arrived spot on opening time (Talgarth appears closed until 10) so we got to see the whole process from start to finish! Volunteer miller/guide Rob showed us the sluice gate, opening it to let the river water flow to the water wheel. We walked through the lovely gardens, which contain varieties of wheat, fruits, vegetables and flowers. Miller Rob showed... More

We started out in the cafe with the first decent coffee we've had in the UK, and great home-baked chocolate brownies. We had a window seat and even saw a few dippers playing in the stream. The mill itself is beautifully restored. Despite not taking a guided tour the volunteers were more than willing to share the history of the... More

Really pleased to visit this beautiful mill and see it being kept going by wonderful volunteers. £4 for adults and £1 for children to look around - not a lot to see but it's great to support the mill staying open. Gardens were well kept and flowers stunning. Mill café didn't disappoint either - bit pricey for what you get... More

We visited the mill as a family and our guide was brilliant at engaging the children and adults alike.The place is wonderfully restored and interesting to see in action. The cafe had delicious bread and cakes but was expensive for what it was and the staff were not particularly friendly. A smile goes a long way and costs nothing.

We toured the mill with Rob who was very informative. All the tour guides are volunteers. Afterwards we had a sandwich with their own delicious bread, and home made soup, and salad. The mill was made famous by a TV programme Village SOS shown a few years ago. A very interesting and enjoyable experience all round.

We love coming here for fresh baked bread and cakes. Lovely too, for a snack and hot drink, looking out of the panoramic window seats at the little, babbling stream below. Try the home-made soup with salad and fresh-baked roles or sandwiches....lovely and fresh....of course it`s baked on site.

A nice modern cafe next to the river, very clean and spacious. It has a water wheel where they make their own bread which was really cool!

A visit to the Brecon Beacons should also include to a visit here. The tour of the mill gives you the insight to how the flour is ground ready to be transferred to the bakeryand used to make the superb loaves of bread on sale in the cafe/shop on the same premises. Do try the bread it is superb. Have... More

A historic structure and a pleasant tea room with superb home baked cakes and scones, bread and conserves for sale. We visited having seen the BBC TV Village SOS which had featured how the village had worked together the refurbish the old Mill and were not disappointed.
