The Bradford Arms Hotel & Restaurant is a privately owned establishment located on the Welsh border in the idyllic village of Llanymynech. Originally a coaching inn dating back to the late 17th century, the property was victorianised when it formed part of the Earl of Bradford’s estate in the early 1900’s.Now under the ownership of Bob & Cath Hedley, an award winning catering team from North Yorkshire, it has been restructured and upgraded to a very high standard with five superb letting rooms and high quality cuisine and a car park at the rear of the building.

After an arduous day's walking on Offas Dyke we were hoping for a comfortable hotel with good food and decent ale. The Bradford Arms was the perfect choice, with a genuine welcome from Bob and his team. The food is almost all cooked from fresh - a rarity in pubs these days. It was excellent; well presented, tasty and generously portioned. We left after an early breakfast; rested, well fed and ready for another day on Offas Dyke.

I stopped for two nights whilst walking Offas Dyke and the place ticked all the boxes for me . First the rooms - Immaculately clean with everything you could wish for facility wise and they were also cleaned between the two days. Second - The food . Home made nourishing food cooked to a high standard at a very reasonable price and variety. Third - The beer . Kept very very well . I had Black Sheep and it tasted like it was served in Masham. Fourth - The locals . A really nice inclusive bunch who adhered to Covid mask wearing and distancing to a tee. Fith- The staff. They were a tight knit family who couldn't do enough to make your stay welcome. They had the enviable ability to be hyper efficient but not intrusive. They obviously got on very well with the locals and visitors. They were very vigilant in cleaning tables and mask wearing without appearing overbearing . They obviously enjoyed their job and worked well together . Sixth and finally- Great value for money . If I didn't live so far away I would use it as a regular place to weekend.

Amdist this Covid chaos, we sought to take ourselves away for a couple of days to a quiet area where the rates were low. Bob & Cath looked after us well during our recent 2 night stay. Our double room was clean and looked well prepared. The heating in our main radiator wasn't initially keen on coming on but Bob and his hammer did the job and sorted it! We liked the relaxed and homely vibe in what is a privately run establishment. We ate in the restaurant on both evenings and had good food each time. We particularly liked (ok, the better half particularly so!) the breakfast pre-order the night before. She's a fussy bugger and this meant she got exactly what she wanted (including baked beans in a pot!) with no wastage. These may sound like small and trivial things but the little details make a difference. Finally, we were impressed by the Covid guidelines set down. Masks on when moving around and and simple signage to explain what was what. All in all, an enjoyable get-away right on the Welsh/English border - our bedroom looked out onto the border, a few feet away! If we ever visit Llanymynech area again, we'll call in to say hello.

I booked 2 nights for 6 people, one dropped out. Wasn't a problem. The people are so lovely and the staff are really keen to help. We had our breakfasts and our main meals and the food was fantastic, great selection for all tastes. My fave was the home made steak and Ale, another favourite was the steak. All followed by some great beer and perhaps some Welsh Penderyn whiskey. The rooms where spotless, quirky and comfortable, they all had TVs but we were not here to watch TV!! We came to sup and eat. We visited Llangollen and the steam train also en route is Telford's Viaduct, worth a visit. If you want to dip your toe into Wales, then walk out the front of the pub and stand on the road. The English border is the pavement, over the curbstone you're in Wales :) For safety reasons I wouldn't stand on the road as there is a good chance a car will hit you. Anyway, absolutely delighted and wondering when we can come back.

Friendly, great atmosphere, good food and very good value. Pleasantly old-fashioned village hotel, pleasantly done up with lots of character. Good for Offa's Dyke Path walkers, would definitely visit again.
