The food here has been consistently excellent for a long time - and the steak is superb. Miss the Maitre De Mary who I assume has retired but still good service.

Recently are here as part of a group, starter and main were served in good time, the portion size of the mains was very small for the price paid 14.95 for a basic main you expect something more. Very slow to come around for desert orders by which time we had eaten birthday cake and did not want any desert... More

We stopped for a light lunch after climbing Pen y Fan. Ate out in their sunlit courtyard. Service was friendly and attentive. Had both kinds of soup on offer today, both were delicious. The bread served with the soup was delicious and fresh. Shared a serving of chips all, not the thick cut that I prefer but was excellent. Chocolate... More

We were recommended by the accommodation we stayed at to visit this place as it was so good. They were not wrong it was absolute first class food, we couldn't fault a thing. First class dining! I definitely recommend the steak, cooked to perfection

Been a couple of times to meet a friend. Lunch menu ok although quite pricey. Both had gammons... Pleasant, decent sized portion. Lovely to have tea in decent sized China pots though. It was pretty quiet in the bar and tables need some attention.... Noticed the varnish had peeled and was stuck to my forearms when we left! Also found... More

This hotel has a Jacuzzi and small pool and is a very relaxing place to spend an evening. The restaurant has a good reputation, and Welsh lamb on the occasion I was there was fantastic. The rooms are a good size and warm. The stream runs to one side of the hotel and it is possible to have a room... More

We went here to use a wedding voucher given to us and must say although many people say how nice the food is here I personally don't think the food is to a good standard. At best it's well presented pub food. There were no tables in the restaurant so we ate the same menu in the bar. Tables were... More

Used to come here once every year or so with my family & I used to hugely enjoy our time here. In a wonderful setting. I enjoyed the chicken with wild mushrooms & vegetables. However one of my family members had the sirloin steak & wasn't hugely enamoured. Overall average- I enjoyed my food but staff weren't hugely friendly &... More

My second visit and felt I had to commend the chef on the excellent standard of food here. I will be back for the restaurant alone! First time I stayed, second time had lunch on a spa day.... All the food has been of a high standard. No wonder the restaurant gets busy!

Called in late evening for some food and sat in the bar. The venue was very busy and had a wonderful atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was lovely, the only criticism was that some of the deserts had too much alcohol which overpowered some of the tastes. A lovely evening had and will definitely go back to... More
