Friendly Pub!

We ate here twice on our recent visit to Talybont on Usk. The menu had enough items that we were able to vary our orders for each night. The food was very good and plentiful, and the pub itself has a lot character, with fires burning on cool evenings. the beer choices are many, including many local... read more

A great selection of cask-conditioned ales at reasonable prices served mainly by friendly staff. Sizeable garden is a sun trap but needs some TLC.

A real gem of a place if you look beyond the slightly tired decor and chat to the very friendly staff. Sadly we arrived after a big party of people on an unexpectedly sunny week in Wales so we waited an hour for our food. It was worth the wait though; I had the venison faggots which I can honestly...

We walked from Brecon to Talybont this afternoon. We went to The Star for drinks and desserts. When I went to the bar to order the barman questioned if we had eaten there. ( I see this happened to another reviewer) We just wanted desserts and drinks as we had eaten else where as they don't serve food between 2pm... More

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

We stopped here for sunday dinner with my wife and 16yr old son and the dog after a gentle walk along the canal that runs behind theis pub. This is a lovely country pub with freindly staff. 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
