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

Excellent food served at the Star. Steaks are exceptional and the onion rings are massive. Been here as a family with a toddler and they are very helpful and are family friendly.

Loved this pub, which was a 40 minute canal side walk from Pencelli Castle campsite. For a pub seemingly in the middle of nowhere it was always busy with drinkers and diners. Tourists and locals. If you're an ale fan you'll love it. They have a super selection that changes daily 'when the barrels empty, that's it' as it was... More

My partner and myself had a lovely meal here and the staff made you feel very welcome and at home. The live music was also a nice addition and added to the atmosphere. Would definitely recommend a visit.

We had a lovely meal - 2 adults and 2 children for lunch midweek. Food was freshly cooked and superb and the service very friendly. However, it took an hour for our food to arrive and it wasn't busy at the time. Apparently it takes this long to cook the children's steak pie - would have been okay if we... More

This is an absolute gem. Inside it has been lovingly kept as a proper old-fashioned pub. It hasn't been revamped so that it's not the tarted up commercial "gastropub" that one finds all too often now. The food is truly excellent. Not a big choice because everything is cooked to order so be prepared to wait if they're busy. Well-behaved... More
