We have visited the Crown a few times in the evening, and have always enjoyed our meals, but this was the first time we have been there for Sunday lunch. It did not disappoint - a fantastic rabbit starter, and excellent soup, followed by one beef, one pork and one sea bass main course. First class meats and gravy and... More

Went here for a friend's birthday. The meals were extortionate, very much style over substance. Very well presented but the chef needs to work on their flavour as the taste was very bland considering the price of the menu. Soup tasted watered down. Main was flavourless. Dessert was the best part of the meal but again lacking in flavour. Very... More

Use this place a couple of times a year on visits to the area. The fairly typical pub food has been consistently good, the real ale choices are sufficient (including Bass on draught; increasing rare these days). The outside patio is a real hotspot when the sun shines and the interior is simply decorated with enough different sized tables to... More

Food well priced, beautifully presented and nicely cooked. Service is warm and considerate. Restaurant itself is beautiful, comfortable and offers a great atmosphere. Would go again.

12 of us had a wonderful time with fabulous food and wine last Saturday. The lunch time menu is excellent . The staff were busy with another party but that didn't detract from the tremendous service we received. Thank you The Crown. .

Took my mother and father out for her birthday lunch. Very fussy old fashioned parents with food :-) if you know what I mean. They and my wife and I absolutely loved it. Big browny points all round. Very good pub lunch, very reasonable prices, relaxed atmosphere, and good choice on menu. We will be back.

Such an amazing pub. I wish we were nearer to enjoy it more regularly. We visit The Brecons often and will always ensure we eat here as it is so good. There is a good local vibe too. The food is absolutely wonderful and such good value. There is also a good selection of beers and wines. Make sure you... More

Decided to book Sunday Dinner at The Crown as we were in the area for the weekend. With no recommendations we weren't sure what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, and definitely homemade. My boyfriend commented that it was the best yorkshire pudding he had ever tasted - high praise!! The only downside for me... More

Went for evening meal. Sausages and mash were very nice. Not a great deal of choice on the menu. Staff very polite and good service.

Thank Helen P
