Stopped for lunch here with my wife after visiting the Elan Valley Lakes. Pleasant enough place with friendly and helpful staff, we encountered only one, so a bit pushed at times, Thought the long menu was far to ambitious for a pub and it'd be better if they focused on a more limited range of food with regular menu changes...

My brother and I stayed during a 3 day cycle tour. We had a friendly check in and were shown to our room. It was clean and tidy enough. We had a really great couple of meals and beers at the bar. The beds were comfortable enough and the shower was really good. The room was well equipped with teas,... More

3 nicely kept real ales Very good value en suite rooms. The compact rooms are pleasant but are up a steep flight of stairs so also unsuitable for those with limited mobility. Breakfast is served across the road at Ty Morgans so take a brolly justin. This is also worth noting if you are disabled. Pool and video games in... More

Had lunch here. It was lovely..good portion sizes, and lovely flavours. I had the steak baguette and chips. wanted dessert but was so full from my baguette. I love mayonnaise and you can ask the waitress for condiments. Very homely atmosphere,typical if the old style pub that has long gone. Reasonable prices too. And service was quick.

We went to the Crown for a family meal (parents, siblings and partners and respective kids). The meal was beyond our expectations. My mum is a coeliac, and my son (3) is both dairy and wheat intolerant. The chef was extremely helpful. Normally these dietary requirements lead to a very limited number of choices on the menu, however the chef... More

Went here for a stop over while in Wales. Very accommodating and we were allowed to take the dog, and there was a nice walk just behind the cattle market to take him. Breakfast was okay, had to go over the road for it which was fine this weekend with the weather. Quite steep stairs to climb to get to... More

My wife and I had lasagne. This was the worst I have ever eaten. It had big lumps of mince and no meat any where else. There was too much cheese sauce. My wife tasted mould on the red pepper in the salad. Truly dreadful. If a chef can't cook a dish this basic and check that salad items aren't... More

I went to the Crown Inn for dinner with some friends recently. It's a traditional pub inside and the staff are very friendly. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Its quite a small restaurant and feels quite busy if there are large groups at the bar, however, it had a friendly atmosphere and we all enjoyed our meal!

We walked into our room (room 3) and it looked really nice and cosy. It was really warm and clean. The exposed wall was a nice feature and the decor was really pleasant. We'd travelled 3 hours from Somerset after working all day to spend Easter with family who live close by so just wanted a good nights sleep. We... More
