After a distinctly wet walk in the Brecon Beacons morale was low when we got back to the car and emptied the water out of our boots before heading back to the camp site. But what a turn round in fortune when we followed the signs to this tea room and stopped for a cup of tea. It was nicely... More

Happened to drive past this adorable tea room whilst travelling through the countryside. As we walk in, we ask if they accepted card to which the owner replied that they didn't but added 'but don't worry, we'll sort something out.' Thinking we would have to be washing up for a couple of hours in return for our scones and tea,... More

We had a cream tea and it was delicious! It was served really quickly after ordering on very pretty porcelain plates.the staff were very welcoming. Certainly well worth a visit... More

After a strenuous morning mountain biking and having gotten suitably lost, the sight of a little sign saying "old barn tea room 2 miles" was a glorious sight. The tea room itself is in a wonderful setting, the garden full of different species of birds and butterflies, the perfect setting to relax and rest weary legs. The cheery waitress arrived... More

The previous reviewers have said it all. The food is freshly made (you can actually see the ladies baking through the kitchen hatch). Everything about it is lovely: the standard of the food, the price, the people, the setting. We will definitely seek it out again next time we are in Wales.
