Went the the White Swan with friends to celebrate my wife's birthday. There was a good atmosphere with decent food and a wide selection of beers and wine. Good service from pleasant staff. We let slip it was a birthday meal and they came back with a card, balloon and a small cake with candles.. Nice touch!

Family supper. Lovely setting. Very friendly service in a warm atmosphere. Probably sensible to book during busy periods The service was friendly and the meals arrived in good time. Pies looked great. Pen y fan burger and fish and chip portions were massive which was great for walkers, but not great for pudding sales. Decent value for money. Entry level... More

We had a lovely meal at the White Swan. Food, service and location spot on. This type of establishment appears to be far a few between in the Brecon Beacons area, as far as we can see while on holiday. By this I mean well looked after, ran and reasonably priced. The Pub is beautifully kept, clean and looks stunning... More

Returning after 12 months found new owners and staff but the food, drinks and service in both bar and restaurant were all very good. Occasional minor errors such as forgetting to bring water are forgivable.

Have visited many times over the years of differing ownership and decided to go again recently. Love the outdoor area, bar and service was fabulous.... If anything I was asked too many times about the meal. Enjoyed the merlot, served at a good temperature. Good food although was just ok this time...... I had surf and turf and was disappointed...

Used to visit this pub lots a few years back, and this was the first time back for quite a long time. Must be in a time warp, as it is as good now as it was years ago. Very friendly, helpful and we were made to feel very welcome. It is dog friendly which is great, especially after a... More
