We stayed the travellers rest for explore the local MTB area. Great rooms with own access, lovely breakfast. Was being renovated but looks like it being finished to a high standard. Lovely log burner.

We have just had a lovely evening here. Starting with drinks by the fire. The food was fantastic., beautiful melt in the mouth steak with lovely sauté potatoes. The standard here is extreme high and well worth a visit. They have still not finished the full renovation but the restaurant is beautifully done. Will be going back again that's for sure!

Sadly we can't comment on the B&B as we only visited for dinner. Our meal was sensational and the restaurant is lovely. We sat on a comfy leather couch by the log burner while we looked at the menu. We both had a large bowl of delicious mussels for starter and then probably the best fillet steaks we have ever eaten in this country - tender, tasty and cooked to perfection. Lovely vegetables to accompany. The owner was very friendly and welcoming and the service could not be faulted. If you are visiting Talybont this is definitely the place to eat - especially after the bad meal we had the night before in one of the village pubs.

Thank you Joy & Doug for a fantastic meal. The roast rib of beef cooked exactly as I had asked and my Creme Brulee with fruit crunch scrumptious. All for £14.95 for 2 courses, excellent value. Looking forward to staying with you in May.

During our travels it was recommended that we see Talybont-on-usk. Without booking and arriving late afternoon we were very fortunate to find The Belvedere B & B on Station Road where Pat made two Aussies feel very welcomed. Pat gave all options for dinner and we decided to dine at the Travellers Rest which was a short walk from The Belvedere and at 7pm in September still very light. The approach to the restuarant was promising and on opening the front door that was confirmed. We immediately felt welcomed and absolutely enjoyed the feel of being inside a very old cottage (which is why we travel to the UK). The service was great and the young lady was wonderful with her lively approach. We felt at home and decided that we would be there for a while and therefore relaxed. The food was first rate, so much so that I enquired with the owner, Joy as to who the chef was. I was pleasantly surprised to learn it was her husband with 20 years experience. I recommend the fish/Plaice and any of the desserts. After ports and irish coffees we waddled back to the B & B with the thought, that is what we want from the UK. We were not aware that the restuarant had accommodation as well.

Didnt stay there but should have! Ate in their restaurant and my goodness what beautifully cooked venison and jus! We counted eleven different meats of which we sampled two of and both were originally cooked and tasted delicious. Random assortment of beers to try and two cats to stroke...will definitely make it a priority to go back

Joy and Doug Browning run a very good, laid-back, informal establishment. They are also lovely people. There are only three bedrooms, but each is fine with comfy beds and good full bathrooms. The downstairs bar/restaurant area is comfortablly rustic. Doug's cooking is first rate. He allows good ingredients to speak for themselves and keeps fussiness to a minimum. Breakfasts are superb with fresh fruit as well as a wonderful full fried. You will need to check ahead because the restaurant does not open every night of the week and sometimes is closed on days when it might otherwise be open. This is where you might encounter the only problem with this wonderful establishment: The Brownings are not the world's best communicators. You cannot email and sometimes you may wait a while to get a phone call returned. It can be a bit annoying at times, but patience will be well rewarded. As to location, it is hard to imagine a better one. Half an hour's walk puts you into the most dramatic scenery in the Brecon Beacons with Pen y Fan close at hand for the strong and the determined. Prices for both rooms and food are very reasonable. This place is an old favourit eof mine. I shall return again and again.
