Popped in here for a bite to eat on the way back to the Midlands. It is under new management. It was a most enjoyable experience from start to finish. Frank, the new manager is a wonderful host... interesting and entertaining,. The food was excellent and very reasonable. We will certainly be visiting again very soon.

The rooms are great with all the facilities you could need. Staff are friendly and helpful. Food is not good however, very overpriced, small portions and pretentious (even breakfast). My partner good food poisoning from the mussels which had a couple of tainted (smell of ammonia) mussels in the bowl which was unpleasant in the extreme but at least the... More

We had a great double room with huge bathroom well furnished and equipped. Very quirky with floor sloping in all directions but very well decorated and interesting. Soundproofing not brilliant but to be expected I suppose for such an old building - no noise from the road outside but could hear fellow guests inside. The food was very good and... More

This is a very historical coaching inn, surrounded by stunning scenery that has been refurbished to a very high standard. Very spacious room, hot bath and very comfortable bed. The beer is delicious and sympathetically kept and the staff were welcoming. Will definitely stay again. Breakfast individually prepared to perfection.

Stayed here overnight while travelling with work, what a lovely find. Located directly on the A470, not that you'd know it, enveloped in the wonderful mid wales countryside. The pub is just wonderful, cosy, tasteful, warm and welcoming. Lots of shoots go from here and people watching those who have paid thousands to go is just fascinating. We had a... More

Went there for lunch last week. We were the only two people eating there and the food was well cooked and tasty and everything was clean and tidy. The young man who took our order did not engage with us and seemed generally uninterested. No smiles , no indication that we were valued customers. We ate the food and no-one... More

A nice place to stop for coffee on the way to Portmeirion. Staff are really friendly and the coffee is delicious. We sat outside in the so shine and watched the world go by. Very relaxing. There isn't much around the inn except scenery but towns are nearby so it's not in the middle of nowhere and I would imagine,... More

we were looking forward to a relaxing break from work and chose the Brigends Inn on previous TA reviews, unfortunately we did feel the inn did not live up to our expectations, I understand this is an old building and so soundproofing is virtually non existent but for us the extent of noise we felt to be too much to...

Really great location in the middle of beautiful countryside, surrounded on all sides by lush green hills. Building really old with bags of character and I should think that no matter which room you are given it will have a wonderful view. I stayed here last week for one night whilst in the area on business. The room was adequate... More
