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

I was on a business trip through Wales from South to North and needed a stop over. This was ideal. Excellent service, comfortable rooms and great restaurant. The reception was warm and just what I needed after a 3 hour drive. Steeped in history and set in beautiful surroundings this really is a hidden gem. The breakfast was to a... More

The Brigands Inn, Mallwyd certainly deserves the 5* rating we have given. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Catrin to the moment we left, we found the place to be friendly, comfortable and were served with great food. Our room had a four poster bed, a lovely view of the mid Wales countryside and had stunning oak... More

We stayed overnight enjoying dinner,bed and breakfast last week to celebrate being married for 42 years. The accommodation was superb.. we had a large and comfortable bedroom and a huge and luxurious bathroom. Fresh milk was provided as soon as we arrived for a fresh cup of tea or coffee. My wife and I both had steak for our main... More
