Very welcoming owner and top service all round, even brought my pint to the table. Lovely food, all home cooked fresh and tasty. Eat in the bar area, lovely real fire, though I think there's also a 'restaurant' / lounge area. Great selection of beers, not just the usual tipples. Wish it was closer to home, I'd be there every... More

If you're anywhere near Cwmdu, then do stop off and have a drink at The Farmers Arms. Excellent, locally produced food on offer with a wide choice of drinks available. There's wifi too. They are closed on a Monday. Had a thoroughly enjoyable evening after a long drive to Wales from Norfolk. I'll be back next year.

Lovely location in the Usk valley, had a lovely fish and chips mushy peas on the evening, had Sunday lunch served from the car very, unfortunately it was not very warm and the meat though a generous portion was a little tough. Staff and landlord were very friendly especially the young waitresses, they were very helpful and courteous.

We didnt stay there, but were staying nearby and walked down a cold and wet country lane to the pub. It is not a big village, but there seemed to a range of locals inside. They were entertaining to watch and said hello. The pub itself it quite small, and cozy, old fashioned and with a battered charm. And none... More

We stayed one night in one of the rooms at the Farmer's Arms at the end of a fairly packed holiday. We kept having to change our arrival time due to traffic, but the owner didn't seem to mind - we received a warm welcome, the room was warm (as warm as it could be with 5 electric heaters at...

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
