Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Lovely restaurant/bar with an interesting and reasonable menu (good for vegetarians). We were celebrating a 70th birthday in Brecon. The atmosphere was great, we were allowed to bring our dog and the waiting staff were friendly and helpful. Unsurprisingly they have a wonderful selection of...beer and gin (including non-alcoholic).More

Lots more seating upstairs, great value and fine scrumptious food. Nice wine lovely evening. Tip for owner- put a sign up to say more seating upstairs, we sat down stairs in the end, the lighting was a bit harsh upstairs and no music up there...either. However, would sit anywhere for that lovely food.More

We dropped in after visiting the museum and a walk along the canal. Really lovely little venue, seating in small garden area as well as plenty more upstairs. Plus catered for both vegan and gluten-free!
