Lovely pub, great atmosphere

A spur of the moment booking for 5 of us, looking for a quality pub evening and that's what we had. The pub is full of character and was heavingly busy - surprising for mid-February and it had clearly surprised the owners who were rushed off their feet keeping up with all the customers.

Eight of us met to enjoy the pre-Christmas dinner menu in this wonderfully characterful country pub. Some of us had turkey with all the trimmings, which was great; others opted for curry or ham, egg and chips, and everyone was happy. Four of us shared two starters of scallops with black pudding and brussels sprout puree - delicious. The puddings... More

We visited the Harp as a group of 10 including 4 children. The atmosphere was, as always relaxed and friendly. The owners and staff are always welcoming and even on this particularly busy lunchtime we were well looked after . The food is always excellent, but the parsnip fritters were outstanding, everybody had various starters and commented on how good... More

On a recent short break in the Kington area we found a few references to the Harp in the guest book at the cottage where we were staying. We booked a table for Wednesday, but due to unforeseen circumstances we had to telephone twice to say we would be late - no problem at all, they were really good about... More

Superb panoramic views. Outdoor seating area overlooking breathtaking landscape. Very friendly service and excellent food. A very picturesque 15th century church nearby - definitely worth a visit.

I was introduced to the Harp with another friend whilst enjoying a short break in Llandrindod Wells. We were there for an early meal at Midsummer. The restaurant was busy but the service prompt. My tuna was excellent as well as innovative. I now try sliced new potatoes and radishes with other spicy meats!!

Very good cooking with plenty of variety and tables nicely placed under the hop-bines and old beams. Comfortable settles and a friendly atmosphere with plenty of "buzz" and a very nice mix of locals and visitors. Service was pleasant and efficient, despite being extremely busy - a most enjoyable experience overall.

Excellent cooked food but rather limited menu. Real ales on tap. Very busy (especially on a midsummer's Saturday night when we went) Booking therefore recommended. Lovely location on a hill top with wonderful views for miles out towards the west (especially at sunset).

This quaint old Inn is full of character and characters, perched on the top of a hill overlooking Welsh valleys. We had an excellent 3 course meal all freshly cooked with the emphasis on quality rather than quantity. The meal was washed down with a lovely South African Chenin Blanc. All safely delivered to our table by Holly who was... More

This pub has fantastic views be it in the summer or as, when we visited, in the snow. The major attraction though is the wonderful food. Not cordon bleu dining, but expertly cooked tasty, comforting and honest fare. Generous portions too! First class ales add to the thoroughly enjoyable experience. The licensees are also very friendly. More atmosphere in the... More
