Not sure why the previous reviewer praised the Talkhouse then gave it one star for everything ??? Surely a mistake ???

Booked the Talkhouse for 2nights after reading the great reviews on tripadvisor so was fairly confident that it was going to be good. First impressions were very good and the AA 5 star plaque on the doorway clearly showed that this place meant business. Were given a nice friendly welcome by the lady owner and given a choice of room much like some of the other people the have commented on here. All 3 rooms looked good though and attention to detail was evident.
Dinner was, as expected, both plentiful and with an interesting menu. My wife and I both had different starters and mains and the freshness and quality was just there where it should be. Menu choice was good, potion size was excellent and the service impeccable. I could not fault a single thing about the Talkhouse.
Breakfast the next day was just as good.
The second evening we made sure we chose something different again and it was just as good. This place is definitly about the food but with lovely clean and quite unique accomodation.
If I could give it 6 out of 5 I would.

Stayed here in July with colleagues as was working near-by. Owners are very friendly and attentive. The food was fantastic - after a long day working I looked forward to returning here to eat and sleep. Rooms were clean, ensuite, cozy and comfortable; as there is only a few we were allowed to pick amongst ourselves which ones we wanted - a nice touch. as others have said there is not a lot around this area but if you are looking for nice wine, fine food and a cozy night in I would pick here every time.

We didn't stay but we did eat.

Having been really badly let down on other nights, this was a delightful surprise.

Our hosts were lovely, the staff friendly and attentive and the food great.

Thoroughly enjoyed it.

We'll be going back - even if it is 3hours away!

If you love good food, then this is the B & B for you! The restaurant is excellent, the wine list superb, and the atmosphere warm and relaxing. We stayed in Tybie, which is somewhat small and has the low doorways you would expect in a 17th century building. (Would not recommend that room for a very tall person.) We were so pleased to have discovered the place -- a real, hidden gem. A weekend to remember.

We stayed at the Talkhouse for 2 nights on a recent trip to Wales. I had read about the excellent food, which is why I made the reservation.

We were warmly welcomed by Jackie and given a choice of two available rooms. We chose "Tirion," which was small but comfortable, and very nicely laid out with a really nice bathroom.

We ate at the inn both nights of our stay--this was good partly because there are very limited options nearby--driving to Newtown is really the only choice--but moreso because the food is EXCELLENT. Really excellent food, very nice wines--as fine as some of the finest food in New York.

I would definitely recommend the Talkhouse and would stay there again, but there are drawbacks: it is really, really in the middle of nowhere. There is some walking nearby, but not much--driving to Brecon is the best option and that is a bit of a trip. The other drawback is that our room was on the front of the inn which is set right up against the road, and we heard car and train traffic starting very early in the morning.

Still, those things said, the food and the welcome are worth it.
