“Last man standing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

Visited on a busy Friday evening in early May. One of the friendly locals mentioned until recently Erwood sported two pubs and two shops. Within this village the Wheelwright Arms is the last amenity and they have embraced their position within the community wholeheartedly. The customers were a pleasant mix of locals (who obviously still think that the new staying in is still going out to the local pub) and strangers either passing by or from the Builth Wells showground where an antique even twas being staged.
And who can blame the locals as they are just as happy to serve a cup of tea to a double scotch at all really keen prices. A large wine £2.90. Plus they serve wholesome food also at reasonable prices. It is a really friendly family atmosphere. One of the locals at the bar let out an expletive and he was instantly rounded on by his friends and admonished in no uncertain terms. They also sell odd bits of local produce and noticed boxes of eggs on counter for sale.
Congratulations for a pub which has adapted to our straightened times. Marked one point off as found the premises just a tad on the scruffy side but to others probably just lived in. Oh forgot to mention the Wye valley ale. Excellent.
