“Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Tucked away a mile off the A483 between welshpool & Newtown is this fantastic old pub!
A warm friendly welcome awaits, along with a fine selection of beers and wines.
The food is much better than your normal country pub fair with a price to suit every pocket. Recommended has to be one of the two steaks on the menu, which i believe are sourced from the local butcher in Welshpool! Our main meals were served with a dish of 4 different veg and we were also given a nice sized dish of chips and new potatoes where we could put exactly what we liked on the plate.
The Landlord and his Staff were very clear & helpfull and made for a relaxed dining experience. A drink amongst the friendly locals at the bar in front of the roaring open fire made for an enjoyable evening!
I really would reccomend the little trip off the main road to The Lion Hotel in Caerhowel!

I must visit this restaurant at least 5 times a year with friends or family. The food is your usual pub menu and this is what I like most about it, this is the place to go when you want a good pub meal and not be disappointed.

The prices are very reasonable with the quality of food and service at a good standard that you would expect from a pub restaurant. The ambience is of a traditional country pub and should you visit during the colder months you are bound to find an open roaring fire which is always nice to sit by either before or after your meal. For those that like a choice of ales there is usually a few guest ales on offer too.

I always look forward to going back.

6 of us had an evening meal here having walked the Offas Dyke path from Bishops Castle. We were all very impressed by the quality and freshness of the food, four of us had fillet steak, they were all cooked perfectly and mine was one of the best if not the best steaks I have ever tasted. The locals beers were excellent as was the service and atmosphere. Fantastic place to eat!
