I've been to the Nant Ddu a number of times now, for bars meals and for group celebrations in the restaurant. The food is always good with large portions and reasonably priced for a good meal. Normally the wait for food isn't long (unlike some places where you may wait 45/1 hr). The staff are always friendly and helpful.

Have called here on a couple occassions, weekdays, for lunch, last visit 1st April. Have had some lovely meals sat in the garden when its been a sunny day, food has always been good and varied choice. What annoys me is that they say the restaurant is closed for lunch if they have a couple of people dining in there... More

I have eaten here on a number of occasions and prefer the atmosphere in the bar. Food is the same as the restaurant so relatively expensive and not typical bar food but is more good pub rather than good restaurant standard.

Decided to have afternoon tea with some girlfriends as a change from lunch or dinner. However it's scones with a pot of tea/coffee not afternoon tea that was available. What we got was nice enough - scones were warm and just out of the oven, drinks were hot but I think it's a shame they don't go for the full... More

First time i've eaten at the restaurant having had the excellent bar meals in the past. What a fantastic meal it was too! I had the confit duck leg starter and the monkfish coins for a main and both were wonderfully cooked and so packed with flavour. My wife had the pork belly to start and beef medallions for main...

We popped into Nant Ddu looking for a pub dinner after an epic 8 hour walk in the Brecon Beacons and were delighted to have stumbled across a real gem. Cosy, friendly, great service (the manager had the door open for us after seeing us pull into the car park and showed real attention to detail looking after everyone) and... More

Came here on the off chance with my partner. I've never been before and it was beautiful, would love to visit again. Food was delicious and there was plenty of it. Dessert was heavenly! Beautiful surroundings and a lovely atmosphere.

On spec I booked a table, for myself and my wife, for a surprise lunch. Not disappointed, the food was superb as was the service. Although we had to wait a little bit longer than usual for our food, the wait was well worth it. I had swordfish as my mains and my wife had lamb, both cooked to perfection!

Having booked a Monday night for my Birthday meal I thought the Bistro would be quiet. But how wrong was I !! We walked in and you would have thought it was a weekend,. Nealy ever table taken and at least two other birthday get togethers had the same idea !! As usual I was not disappointed. James the Duty... More
