Had a superb lunch here following an enjoyable tour of the beautiful Catherdral at Brecon. The Dean was most engaging. The food was tasty and well presented. The Welsh Rarebit was delicious. Definitely worth a visit.

IF you need a break for a bite to eat while walking round Brecon then Pilgrims Tea Rooms in the grounds of the cathedral is an excellent choice. We dropped in ahead of touring the cathedral itself because we were hungry and thirsty. A tea,...More

Response from Toni_Pilgrims | Property representative |
