Familiar restaurant, new bistro menu. SLOW but nice when delivered. Bread plates left unadorned, glasses un filled, strange mixture of un opened restaurant/bistro in an old favourite

On a walk with my walking group when we came across the back entrance of this pub. What a beautiful setting with the foliage and nice outside decor. Inside the bar area is really nice and so are the toilets. A couple of our walkers have food including a burger and an antipasti dish to share. The presentation of the... More

Had lunch here and I have to say the food was incredible. I thoroughly enjoyed the lamb burger. Local meat, and home-made chips make all the difference. Will definitely be returning but hopefully in the evening, I've seen the meat in the counter and love the idea of choosing my own steak etc, and with the vast selection of unusual... More

Let's get to the point the food is really good. Not cheap or quickly served ( because it's freshly cooked ) Alex and is colleagues are attentive and professional. Call me traditional but I don't appreciate the " stand up choose your meat " approach. I think most people are happy to be served in the traditional way . The... More

The good points: food was excellent, had antipasti to start followed by steak and chunky chips. Bad points: They are trying to create an experience where you pick your meat or fish from the counter then have it cooked for you. 2 huge chillers in the restaurant detract from the ambience and old cosy feel that the restaurant had. The... More

I brought my family here for a Roast dinner, and must say it was one of the best ever, even my 78 year old mother agreed. The service was wonderful, and the wine list was extensive. I'm looking forward to coming back again to eat as the menu looked exceptional!

We booked to eat at the Swan on Saturday evening - the service was non existent and the food very disappointing, with 2 of the 5 meals being returned to the kitchen. The fish on display was definitely not fresh. The prices suggest this is a top notch establishment, the experience fell very very short of what you would expect... More

Went with family on sunny day so sat on the terrace and enjoyed a good simple meal. Concept is good - you choose your meat or fish from the counter and they serve it up the way you want it. I had minted lamb steak which was delicious (possibly from one of the lambs we saw at Brecon Sales the... More

This gastro pub used to be excellent, over the past few years after a change in management it plummeted to a standard worse than appalling. I am glad to say that seven weeks ago a new management team has taken over, there remains a few bruises to the fixtures and fittings from the last unwelcome tenants, however it is evident... More
