“Superb Service & Perfect Place...”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Stumbled across this gem accidentally whilst out trail riding across the cambrian mountains... We had a few motorcycle issues and stopped to ask for the nearest petrol station (as the one next door was shut)... The warm reception was excellent even though we were dripping wet and caked in mud the owners rushed around getting us towels and heaters - very accommodating indeed! The beer was at perfect temperature and the food great.

In our hour of need the over generous and kind owner offered to drive us back to our vans (miles away in Ryhader) as he could see we were in a bit of a pickle - Top chap, Top pub! This will certainly be our base for our next trips out over the cambrian mountains - well worth a visit if you are in the area!

Turned up on sat evening with 4adults and 5children between the ages of 7 and 13 looking for food after a good day offloading. Barman's initial response to our request for a table was "how many hundreds of you are there?". He then rolled his eyes and shrugged as if we were asking for the earth. We assumed he would have been happy to have had a guaranteed £150 from an empty restaurant but obviously not!!!! Went to Llandovery and had an excellent meal in the castle hotel.....go there for excellent customer service and quality food (lovely steaks cooked to perfection!) or suffer the ineptness and misery in the trout inn.....the choice is yours! Recommend they re-name as "The OLD Trout", or sack the bar staff!!!!

After a lovely day on the Brecon beacons we decided to stop at the Trout inn for a pub meal at 6pm ish on a Saturday. We consisted of 2 families with no young children. We were greeted by a middle aged grumpy man behind the bar who acted as if we had disturbed him from something, there was not a soul in the bar or restaraunt area. His attitude was shocking and before we even had a chance to ask about food he asked in a very angry voice "how bloody many of you is there" so we chose not to spend our money with him and then later found the Castle Hotel in Llandovery which was a fantastic meal and very friendly staff.

A group of us (motorcyclists) stayed at the Trout Inn for three nights in June, as a base for a tour of Wales. It turned out to be one of the wettest weekends ever. In fact, it was that bad we had no choice but to stay in all day Sunday, Pete (The owner) however, with his hospitality was excellent.
The room that we stayed in was clean & tidy, the food was excellent, as was the beer, and the rates were very reasonable too.
Apologies to Pete for the delay in writing this review.
Thank you again for making it a good weekend.

Stayed at the Trout Inn with a group of friends and used it as a base for touring around Wales on our motorbikes. Linda & Peter made us feel very welcome throughout out our stay and they couldn't do enough to help us. There was a good selection of food on the menu so we eat in every day and of course started the day with an excellent cooked breakfast. I would thoroughly recommend this as a great place to stay with access to great roads in every direction so all in all a really perfect base for our tour.

Stayed for 4 nights with fellow motorcyclists on Touring Holiday, great location, quite, and pleasent area.
The host of the Trout Inn, Peter, was warm and welcoming, helpful and with his wife as cook, the hospitality was excellent.
Food was very good and excellent value for money, beer was served at correct temp and bar area was always clean and tidy.
The rooms are pleasent and en-suite, however only have a bath and hand basin was a bit of a negative for me, as Showers seem to be the norm in most hotels these days.
Overall the Trout Inn is a great place to spend a few days, using it as a base to explore possibly the quitier side of Wales, although time to travel to other tourist areas was easy to do.
Only one further observation about Trout Inn, is that there is very little local entertainment.

My stay at the Trout Inn was a very positive experience throughout. The room was comfortable and had clean en-suite facilities. The free Wi-Fi was accessible from the room and bar and the room also had a TV with Freeview channels.
The evening meal and breakfast was of good quality and the bar had a broad selection of drinks.
The location is excellent - within striking range of a huge chunk of Wales and fantastic scenery on the doorstep.
Above all, the warm welcome from the staff and locals made this place stand out for me.
