Excellent Local

The Star Inn is an excellent local pub, very friendly and welcoming. Several excellent bitters including Brecon Six Peaks and Wye Valley. Excellent evening meals too. Highly recommended,

We had another lovely meal in this quaint pub recently and were not disappointed. The pulled ham with poached egg to start was excellent as was the steak for the main. Ian and his staff are very attentive and look after you from the moment you walk in. It is a quite and comfortable pub to visit with a vast... More

We are locals and are currently trying places around Brecon for Sunday lunch. We have been to the Star several times in the past (years) as a stop off for a drink, music night/ jazz weekend, and meals. We booked a slot for Sunday dinner, 3 weeks ago as the pub has always had a good reputation for food. They... More

They serve a selection of good ales and the menu although not extensive has a good selection of food, from sandwiches to beef/pork... More

Very disappointed with our recent visit due to unfriendly service especially from the owner. We were a party of 14 locals who had been there several times before. Unfortunately this time we were not happy with the food and the landlord could not take criticism telling us not to return! Some of the food was good but the portion sizes... More

We stopped at the Star Inn after a very long walk and although they were fully booked they were happy to serve food in the garden. The roast beef was one of the best that I'd ever had with all the vegetables served in separate dishes for us to share with more available should we still be hungry. We were... More

Well most people wound now this pub for its CAMRA's real Ales, and a good place to eat. However, since the new young Chef has arrived the rumours on the grape vine have been flying! So we thought we give this new chef a try on what they call “Fish Night” (Photo of the Menu). My wife and I had... More

My boyfriend and I ate here during a recent visit to the Brecon Beacons. It is a lovely traditional country pub that serves many real ales and good food. It was very busy and seems popular. The staff were very friendly also. We both had the steak and ale pie which was delicious and the desserts were also good too.... More
