I stayed here with my husband and baby for one night just to get my baby used to being away from home. The Tanners Arms was the perfect place to do this as the staff were very friendly and accommodating so it was easy for us to relax! We had a superb meal in the restaurant and great night's sleep in the very comfortable bed. Fantastic breakfast too, could not fault the food or service. It's a great location from which to explore the Brecon Beacons and I'm sure we'll return in the future.

Lovely friendly pub with cosy room. Fresh milk was a really nice touch. Excellent food - really generous portions and breakfast was great too. A perfect, good value base for a Brecon weekend. Thank you

Initial pit stop for a drink after a long bike ride as we were staying up the road in Craig. Warm welcome and sat in the beer garden in the front of the pub. Decided as a group to have a look at the menu to come back for evening meal and it was well worth it. The pub is lovely and cosy inside and the owners are very welcoming. Food was lovely and reasonable and as the last bus back to our accomodation had left the owners kindly gave all 9 of us a lift home...I would highly recommend this place.

Lovely pub and b&b, run by 2 lovely and friendly sisters who made me laugh. The food was brilliant and so filling. The room was comfortable and well decorated. Loved the little fridges with fresh milk for my coffee. Church down the road has an old yew tree, and perfect spot for walkers
