The Forest Arms is set in the middle of Brechfa Village near to the Mountain Bike Trails and Woodland Walks. Full of country charm with 5 different rooms and two open fires. Our Menu offers traditional dishes using local produce with Pub classics such as Home Made Pies, Fish and Chips, and colossal home made Burgers, Welsh Steaks, Curries, and , not to forget hearty puds and Free Trade Coffee Roasted locally. There is a specials board daily with lots of interesting options. Vegetarians are catered for. On Sundays we have a home made Roast. We have a large Beer Garden to the rear of the Pub, with a gated link to the Play Park next door. We welcome dogs, and muddy mountain bikers.

3 diners - we all had different starters and mains and all enjoyed them. Lovely food and good portions - all at a very reasonable price. 2 had deserts which they tell me were also excellent.
