We are so sad that the restaurant has now closed. Our family had had many wonderful meals here over the years. Birthdays , Christmases and anniversaries have all been celebrated with Stephen's superb cooking and Jackie's impeccable front of house. We have also stayed overnight in beautiful clean & comfortable rooms which they are still providing as they remaining as... More

Thank-you so much for your lovely review. We are both very happy that you enjoyed your time at The Talkhouse. As you have noted Stephen is now chef at The Kerry Lamb and I am sure that you will enjoy many happy times there, but if you ever require a comfy room for the evening with a full Welsh breakfast...

Have always eaten at the talk house as they do excellent food. When my son visited from america we always took him to the talk house, and when ever he came over he always said book the talk house, it is sad they no longer do meals but have heard the chef now works at the maesmawr hall hotel.

After 10 years of running the restaurant we decided to down scale slightly and now operate as a bed & breakfast . My husband Stephen (chef at The Talkhouse) has now taken over the kitchen at The Kerry Lamb and I am sure... More

So sad that the Talkhouse has closed - it was always very friendly, with good beers and excellent food (I have seen first rate chefs dining here) and the atmosphere was always good: especially when Christmas Carols were being sung :-) Wish you well! PS the date of our visit is fictitious, as we quite often popped in for a... More

The Talkhouse serves up some of the best atmosphere and fine dining you could ask for in the area. The steaks are to die for and the menu always offers something new to tempt you to try something new.

We chose this restaurant because of the reviews, and were a little disappointed with the food. The menu was written on a chalk board on the wall, the restaurant was light and spacious and the staff extremely friendly. The reviewer below who says the portions are small, must either be an American or eat an awful lot, as we thought... More

I have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions and it never fails to disappoint me. I have a hearty appetite, and when served the portions to me seem small but the food being so tasty and rich I'm full to the gills before its time for pudding. The wine can be a little pricey so if on... More

Our hosts Stephen & Jackie couldn't have done more for us. The food is superb, ingredients are sourced locally even the delicious bread is homemade. The background music is relaxing and not intrusive. Food which is superb is served piping or well chilled as apppropriate. The premises are spotless and a warm welcome is guaranteed. Best place in Mid Wales!

We had lunch there a few weeks ago on a glorious sunny Sunday and of the various restaurants we have tried recently within, say, a 25-mile radius of Newtown, this one is by far the best. I ordered a small dry white wine on arrival and my husband had a non-alcoholic ginger beer which we drank outside in the beautiful... More
