My partner and I visited the Plas Derwen for the first time in 2 years on Monday. The menu was good and varied. Our meals came very nicely presented and I had the lamb, it was cooked just as I had asked, pinkish but very tender it was all delicious. My partner had the pork chop and also enjoyed his... More

Great place, lovely gardens. Staff helpful and friendly. The lasagne was REALLY GOOD. But unfortunately my partners steak was grisley and tough as opposed to medium, as was another's, the burgers were also tough as said by others. It was a shame, we told waitress who said "very sorry" but nothing was done about it, it took the edge off... More

Stopped by Monday 28th July with a work colleague for a spot of lunch, what can i say tried the welsh brie baguette and chicken chilli baguette and it was exquisite. The chips were delicious and the creme brulee was to die for. The staff were a credit to this restaurant and very attentive, what a place!!!!!!!!! Loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I ate here twice in the balmy July nights we've enjoyed this year. We sat outside in gorgeous surroundings, eating superb food that was served by friendly and attentive staff. 10/10 - it could not be bettered.

My wife and I plus family and friends have enjoyed this restaurant many times since 2006. We have always been pleased and impressed with the presentation and polite helpful staff. Chef appears to be first class. Its Part of the Brains group which is how we discovered it after frequenting another Brains group restaurant in Brecon. I highly recommend it.... More

My husband and 11 yr old son had the most delicious beef dinner at the Plas Derwen today. The service was second to none, the waiter being friendly, caring and helpful, specifically double checking lactose free options for my husband. Will definitely recommend and return.

This was local to where we were staying at Hardwick Farm and we were able to walk there easily. The food was well cooked and the service very attentive.

We have passed here a few times and decided to call in on the recent bank holiday. The restaurant area is lovely and although it was fairly busy, we were shown to a table straight away, the waiting staff were lovely. The food was really nice and perfect portion sizes. We ordered the rosemary carrots as an extra side but... More

We didn't plan to stop ( just using the car-park to turn around) but after a long bike ride we decided to stop and get something to eat here. We asked in the bar if there was a table and got taken straight through to the restaurant. The waitress kindly gave us a larger table due to our motor bike... More

A very nice meal at a reasonable cost for Sunday lunch out. Large portion sizes and a good choice of menu. Children's menu also good with larger than normal servings! Service was a little slow but well worth the wait. Lovely desserts, especially the creme brule.
