Its time the owners looked at what they throw away! No wonder the prices are so high these days. There was so much cream and butter and incredibly runny jam that it would easily have done for half a dozen scones! It was the same on all the other tables....what can you possibly do with the extra once your solitary scone has been consumed? No doggy bag would do! Keep the quality, reduce the volume and the prices!

This was only our 2nd visit in 25 years but we were not disappointed - still the same great service and huge portions!
Having been before and remembered fondly we decided to detour on a trip through mid Wales to eat at this lovely cafe.
We ordered the pate between us as a light bite as we were determined to have the scones we remembered from our previous visit.
The pate portion with toast and salad was easily a main course for one and a lovely starter for 2 - huge, home made (I think) and delicious!
The scone was as remembered home made, warm and just perfect with jam and cream - the use of proper whipped cream rather than 'squirty' cream would have been even better, but having said that we weren't disappointed. The gallery upstairs is well worth a visit with art work and photographs of the cafe and bridge.
We also bought their own blend of loose tea which was light and refreshing.
Recommended for hungry visitors, good value.

Still as good as ever. Scones warm from the oven and proper loose tea. Excellent afternoon tea. We will be back.

We always really look forwards to visiting Tu Hwnt Ir Bont every time we visit Wales. It is such a little gem of a place;the building itself is just beautiful to look at and this is truly the very best Welsh tea room!
Whenever we visit we always make sure that we enjoy the very best that Wales has to offer - the Bara Brith is to die for!
We are already looking forwards to our next visit!

This place is a little gem truly well worth a visit, staff lovely and pleasant service with a smile, afternoon tea was magnificent and delicious. We've been to a lot of places for afternoon tea and this is by far the best. Lovely quaint cottage can't wait to go back there on another visit to Wales. Thank you to the lovely ladies who work there it was a pleasure to be served by you all
