Regrettably Hen Fecws no longer serves food during the day instead it now concentrates on providing very good bed and breakfast. The room are stylish and the cooked breakfasts are very, very good. Lots to choose from in addition to a traditional Welsh breakfast - fish on the menu. The owners are friendly and hospitable.

We went with friends while visiting them and were not disappointed. Good food, nice people and family friendly atmosphere. Quite expensive for what it is but overall a good meal.

Yr Hen Fecws has ceased to operate as a restaurant. It is a bed and breakfast establishment only now.

Lovely food served well in a quaint old cottage. The sandwiches were good - 1 Cajun chicken, which was served hot - a bit of a surprise but still tasty and a ham one, equally tasty. Friendly staff and good specials board. Shame we weren't a spot hungrier!

We popped in at 10.55am not knowing breakfast finished at 11am. However a warm welcome and nothing not to much trouble we had a full Welsh breakfast. Yes it's slightly more expensive than a greasy spoon but Yr Hen Fecws is a quality place serving quality food. A roaring fire in the restaurant keeps you warm while you wait for... More

We called in for lunch today , 9 of us with very varied tastes, something for everyone and they gladly did their super club sandwich with just the meat, not even butter for my lactose intolerant grandson and he loved it.
