“Relaxation after a strenuous walk in the Black Mountains!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2014 NEW

What a great little find by the Brother In Law! After a 4 Hour Walk across the Black Mountains, we were able to relax in this lovely Hotel. It has a great feel to it, service was great from the time we checked in. The room was at the top of the hotel and was clean, tidy and comfortable! We had a reservation in the restaurant for 19:00 and were told that it would get busy at 19:30. And so it did, by 20:00 every table was taken! The menu is full with good traditional fair! I ordered the Smoked Haddock Goujons which came with a Green Salad and Homemade Mayonnaise. For my Main, I chose the 8oz Ribeye Steak with Chunky Chips, Field Mushroom, Caramelised Onions and Garlic Butter. All the food was cooked to perfection and presented great. I really enjoyed some good honest food after a long hard day. This was a really great find and I will definitely be returning some time in the future! Excellent!

“Mediocre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2014

Had a Sunday lunch here today , service was extremely slow ; we waited 40 minutes from ordering our meal until service. When the meal eventually came it was mediocre , the custard for the dessert was served in an eggcup sized jug - rationed ! Will give this a miss next time we visit Crickhowell.

“Local eating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2014

Went for a meal on a Sunday evening and although it was a limited menu there was plenty of choice. We both had the burger and it was very tasty and a generous size.

“Good menu, bright modern restaurant, very nice meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2014

The Dragon is a great find in this lovely little town. The food was well presented and tasted as good as it looked. Helpful, friendly staff and all reasonably priced. Obviously popular with locals as well as visitors which adds to the relaxed atmosphere.
