A week in Rhayader so I booked Sunday lunch, not "cordon bleu" but a hearty well cooked meal for just £6 (for a little extra I had the soup: which was a meal in itself). Brains beer in very good condition and a good selection of wine to go with the meal; the Australian Shiraz was excellent. Only aspect on... More

Stayed here for one night, pub itself is charming with a nice fire to keep you warm. The meals were reasonably priced. The rooms are in a separate building to the pub, the room itself was pleasant and comfy, the only drawback was that there was no heating on in the room when we arrived so it was freezing cold,...

Traditional pub with good ales. Well thought out menu, that wasn't too expensive. I had belly pork with mash. Quite fatty, but that's what you expect of the dish, and it was very tasty. My wife said her steak was wonderful, and the mother-in-law went for the scampi. Particularly impressive were the portion sizes, and the chips, which were excellent.... More

Popped in twice for food whilst visiting Rhayader for a weekend.A good varied menu at very reasonable prices. Staff were very helpful and attentive and the bar had a great atmosphere.Only thing on the down side was the darts match on the Friday which cut down on tables for eating, but the darts players were very courteous to the fact...

Did not stay but spent 2 consecutive evenings at the Crown. Group of adults but had children with us and had table in rear room. Really good food, great beer and excellent value. Attentive staff and great relaxing evenings.

We have just had a lovely meal (I had the steak and ale pie and my husband had the leak sausages). The staff were friendly, the restaurant was nicely furnished and the food was superb. I'm glad we chose to eat here and I'd defiantly go back again.

I found this pub particularly had some particularly nice ales (Brains), and tried their rump steak which just melted in the mouth - clearly they place meat quality at the top of their meal agenda. Very good value and a pleasing dining experience.
