Good food, ok value

We were staying just across the road at the Coed Owen Bunkhouse, so went down for some food. The Bar was very busy, but we luckily found a large enough table in the small associated lounge.

I went here on Easter Sunday with two friends, and we ordered the Sunday lunch, the lamb that I ordered was quite tough, and the pork my friends had was really nice. The problem was that we were only give one potion of veg for one person not three, so we called the waiter and asked if we could have... More

The best part of this place is the food. Really delicious. The menu never changes, but they offer a range of specials. I recommend the pork loin. The same good report can't be made for the hotel and I've added a separate review.

Have been supporting Nant Ddu Lodge for many years, and whenever I am visiting family in Brecon I take them there for lunch/dinner. To be fair the setting is nice and the food is consistently good. The young girls who served me were also all pleasant, but when it came to pay, the miserable old women at the bar made... More

Went for lunch, the food was great and service was friendly. I last went to Nant Ddu about 15 years ago, and I am afraid to say I dont think they have refurbished or updated it since. Its desperately in need of refurbishment. Its a shame they don't make the most of the outside space - it was rather unkept,... More

The basics are we booked an early table as we needed to leave by a certain time. When we arrived the restaurant was relatively quiet and so we figured that everything would run smoothly and we would be allowed to relax an enjoy our celebratory meal. It took nearly 90 minutes from ordering our main for it to arrive leaving... More

We stayed here when getting together with other family members. The rooms were clean and fresh, the surrounding countryside was picturesque. Staff were friendly and responsive. The food was very good. We have visited there a number of times before in previous years and will go again when in the area.

Spent the night at Nant Duu Lodge hotel and must say it was a great experience. The check in was efficient and the room was clean and tidy. On visiting the restaurant we were greeted by a lovely lady with exceptional customer service skills. I believe this was the restaurant manager. She couldn't do enough to help along with the...

Stopped off for a meal on travelling down from North Wales. We seemed to pay restaurant prices for bar meals. Chicken curry and plaice and chips. Two soft drinks for £30 + pounds. In the past we used the lodge facilities with a stay and could not rate it high enough. Last visit was five years ago but didn't realise... More
