The Tipple 'n' Tiffin is within the Brecon theatre building so is convenient for pre- or post- show meals. It is a little quirky in so much as it doesn't offer starters so my wife and I shared a main course and then went on to a main course each. The service was excellent despite the restaurant being full - there was a large birthday celebration underway. Our window table looked out over the canal basin with its colourful narrow boats and bustling visitors. Do try it - Brecon is a charming town and we were there during the annual Food Festival - well worth timing a visit to see it.

The restaurant is inside the Brecon Theatre and can be very busy, even fully booked for an early supper before a popular supper. I can recommend the Tiffin tapas at £8, enough for two as a starter. Crispy duck legs and shank of lamb, both £12 are tasty well cooked main courses. There is quite a reasonable selection of wines by the glass around £4-5. Service is fairly efficient but a bit rushed when they are trying to get everybody served before the start of the show. Open other times, when things may be less frantic.

We had an excellent meal here. A shared starter of the tapas, adapted for non-meat eaters with no problem. Then tasty roasted smoked salmon on risotto. I'd been looking forward to the sardines which we'd seen on the menu earlier in the day but by the evening there was a new menu - a good sign indicating that the menu gets updated according to whatever supplies they have. I didn't really want a pud but the chocolate/espresso creme brulee was wonderful.
Contrary to an earlier post, the staff were all helpful & friendly.
The bill for the two of us, with a bottle of wine was £45 - good value. And the setting is picturesque, by the canal basin.
Definitely recommended.

just by chance we came across the theatr brycheiniog, while walking the canal. We only intended to stop for a coffee at the tipple and tiffin but after seeing the lunch menu we could"nt resist!. I had the crispy Duck and my husband had the game sausages. Though he did"nt really want the horsradish mash the young man who took our order offerd him some plain mash or a side order of his choice instead! its little things like that, that really makes a differance.We shall return with freinds, we have found a real gem. The staff were very freindley and the food supperb.

After a stroll through Brecon, we thought it would be nice to relax on the canal at this restaurant and have a bit of lunch. While the food itself was nice, we were shocked at the snappy, grumpy and downright miserable employee who took our order, gave us some change and a bit of hostility while he was at it. I thought this type of service in the UK went out the window some time ago, but have realised it still lurks in places. A shame as the food itself was nice, but our lunch was ruined by the overall experience.
