Great service and a top notch breakfast, the room is as expected for £25 , basic, shared shower and bathroom. Clean sheets and a clean room, easy parking access. Very close to the local shops, around a 8 min walk. Friendly locals. Overall a nice place to stay on a budget.

We have been dropping in at this little gem for five years, a couple of times a year, since we came across it by chance en route to Builth Wells. It has an ideal car park just behind the pub and a warm welcome on entering.The food is first class and beer kept very well..Prices are as you would expect... More

Passing by chance and stopped for the Sunday Carvery lunch. It's a small pub but the food was delicious. Two enormous joints, one beef and one pork with plenty of fresh veg. Good roast potatoes, together with new with relays of fresh veg being cooked all the time. Sadly too far away from home to go frequently which is a... More

Popped in for drinks on 2 evenings as we were staying in the local (very nice) campsite. Landlord and Landlady very friendly as was their dog, Chester. The pub was quiet on both occasions but it was mid-week and at opening time and I liked it that way. The locals that were present were friendly and the ale was well... More

Stopped off for a quick lunch on route to somewhere. Not one of our better ideas. We realised after sitting down that the menu was pretty limited, it was very quiet in the pub and there was an uncomfortable atmosphere. However, as we were almost the only people there, it just felt too awkward to leave without ordering. It took... More

We visited The Farmers Arms for Sunday lunch. The pub was welcoming, cosy and a typical rural country pub. The service was first class from the young waiter and waitress; nothing was too much trouble. The starter was fantastic value and could easily have been the main meal for its size, quantity and quality. The main was really tasty -... More

A lovely pub/B & B. The hospitality at this establishment was faultless, superb food & ale, lovely accommodation with a landlord/landlady (plus dog) to match. The countryside of this area makes it well worth a visit using the pub as a base. Highly recommended

we stayed here saturday night 22nd June. Very friendly atmosphere. Meal was very nice and made to feel really welcome by landlord and his wife. Would definately return hopefully next year with family over for a wedding nearby. Room was small but cosy and peaceful. Certainly a nice place for a base and just a short drive into crickhowell. Definately... More

Four of us ladies camped nearby and came to the pub which is around 400metres away from the campsite.the landlord greeted us upon arrival and we had a delicious meal in the restaurant. Following that we went into the bar and joined in on a game of Dom with the locals. We enjoyed it so much we returned for Sunday... More

Spent three nights here in early May 2013. In the smaller of the two rooms. Basic facilities but all I needed was a warm dry bed while my astronomer friends were camping down the road. Shower could be more powerful but excellent cooked breakfast and local real ale. May I recommend the Breacon Diamond beer. Helps if you know the... More
