Lovely way to spend a couple of hours
Feb 2020 • Couples
We are not “guided tour” people but please agree to a tour, which is free. It was really worth it.
We had a lovely couple of hours here. We had such a great guide, I wish I knew his name. He was a tall, white haired gentleman and a great, warm, funny host. Everyone there is a volunteer and the community have come together to keep the mill running. We were able to go back round alone after so I could take some better photos. Kids can make their own bit of flour to take away too, which the two kids on our tour loved.

Service in the cafe is a little slow but the food we had was fabulous and worth the wait. I think the bread is from the flour milled there. It was delish! We bought some bread making kits to give it a go at home.

Lovely coffee shop
Dec 2019
We visited on a Friday morning hoping to buy the lovely bread but when we arrived at 10am it was all sold out except for 3 brown loafs. We travelled 40 miles to get there so we were disappointed that there wasn’t any more-bread coming out that morning.

Definitely worth a visit
Oct 2019
We had 2 nights away in the Brecon Beacons in early October and the owner of the B&B recommended Talgarth Mill as an interesting place to visit on our way home. We would highly recommend you visit the Mill, which has been lovingly restored and is ably run by volunteers. We had a guided tour from the miller, who was very knowledgeable about the history of the mill and its workings. There is a café on site, which serves some lovely food and you can buy bread which has been baked using the flour ground in the mill. So pleased this was recommended to us, as it is a great place to while away a couple of hours.

Excellent home produce
Dec 2019
We called in for lunch on a cold day in December. The soup on offer was butternut and nut soup (butternut squash with peanut butter added). It was served in smart bowls with good bread baked on the premise and a neatly wrapped pat of butter.

The service was excellent and my wife was even shown the recipe book used when she inquired about the ingredients.

We stayed for a while and had a very good value 'Millers tea' - a mug of well-flavoured tea for a pound. Excellent value for money. My daughter had a bespoke coffee.

We liked the busy ambiance of the place, and the fact that locals were calling in all the time to collect pre-ordered bread and cakes spoke volumes.

A gem of a lunchtime eatery and cafe in a charming small country town.

Little Gem
Sep 2019 • Couples
I’ve been meaning to visit Talgarth Mill for sometime after picking up a leaflet in my local Supermarket. So to try and squeeze in the last dregs of the Summer as the weather was good I suggested we have a drive. Talgarth is definitely a hidden gem. So once we had a quick took around the town we ventured to the mill. As other museums or places of interest I assumed it would we a case of pay your money, look around for a bit, have a brew then depart. But the lady on the til suggested a tour and to we thought give it a go. Please do the tour guys!!! The mill is run solely by volunteers including the tours, milling, just about everything. The lady volunteer (sorry forgot her name) was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Tour lasted about an hour but didn’t seem that long and had a good informative talk as we went around. What was good to see was the lift for disabled access to all floors and accessible walk in the gardens and easy access outside by the river....access was well planned and easy if you have mobility issues.
Note: They sell what they produce and yes you can have a brew or something more substantial food wise. Definitely worth an hour or two for a relaxing tour!!!

BreS making course
Sep 2019
Fantastic bread making course with Nichola who managed 7 and 10 year old boys brilliantly. Made bread, buns, pizza, scones and breadsticks in the morning then ate the pizza for lunch in the lovely cafe and a mill tour by the miller guide in the afternoon where the boys made their own flour. Everyone was so nice and welcoming, we all learnt a lot and it was a lovely day out for 3 generations. Will be back.

Top place to visit in Talgarth
Jun 2019 • Couples
The Mill in Talgarth is such a great place to visit.. What was a derelict building, volunteers and a lottery grant brought it back to be a wonderful place to visit. Volunteer killers grind the corn to make the flour that is turned into bread in the Bakers Table, the prize winning cafe. Open every day except Monday .
Watch the wheel go round to grind the flour then enjoy a coffee and some lunch to spend a morning

Interesting and quaint
Jun 2019 • Couples
Was looking for something to do on a rainy day on our holiday and ended up here , the riverside garden was a lot smaller than I expected and there was not many sculptures but the staff there are mega friendly and its interesting to see a mill restored and in full use its also nice to see it bringing tourists and therefore money into the small town . We had coffee and cake ans it was pleasant enough sitting there looking at the birds building nests ans flying around the river
