Hidden in a beautiful Welsh valley is the Brigands Inn. Don't drive past or you'll miss out on a brilliant experience.Excellent food and accommodation with friendly Welsh speaking staff. It has loads of character as well as wifi!! What else do you want. Don't forget the local brew in the bar, you'll sleep even better than normal.

Having recently moved near to Dinas Mawddwy we went to The Brigands Inn with some friends for the evening. We had the most delicious meal ever! It was a lovely atmosphere and the staff were really friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be returning frequently and will be recommending The Brigands Inn to guests at our self catering holiday accomodation.

My partner and I came for dinner and I didn't know what to expect. From the moment we walked in everything was close to perfect. A cosy and welcoming environment, the young gentlemen behind the bar was so polite and helpful and chirpy! We both had a three course meal and everything was divine! THANKYOU.
