“A gem of a place. Very welcoming with superb food and great rooms. Superb value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We had four nights here when walking in the mountains and the host gave us a great welcome. The rooms are modern and comfortable and the food is not only good but plentiful. Never had a better cooked breakfast anywhere!
If you stay here you will not be disappointed. Great value for money.

“Best bacon ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

Lovely people and service. Great comfy bed. The dinner and breakfast was exceptional, especially the bacon. Very reasonably priced and very good quality. I would definitely recommend it for other people. Shame the weather wasn't better.

“Excellent rooms and great breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2013

We stayed at the usk and railway inn for three nights while visiting family friends who live nearby but were renovating their house so we couldn't stay with them. Overall we were very happy with our experience. The rooms were clean, shiny and well appointed. The beds were good and the bathrooms were excellent. The breakfast is outstanding with your choice of eggs and toast or a full English breakfast plus cereal and tea or coffee. We arrived on Sunday and so were able to have the Sunday roast which was excellent. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. We would happily stay here again.

“Quiet, but ok”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013 via mobile

Nice food, drink, environment, but always very quiet, visited 3 or 4 times, always the same, should be busier as overall is quite pleasant :)

“Amazing food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013 via mobile

The food in the Usk is exactly what you need after a day of walking in the Brecon Beacons. Big portions of proper pub grub cooked to perfection. I always come to eat dinner here when I am in Sennybridge.

The service is good but I was accused on one occasion of trying to short change the owner as I handed him a twenty and he thought it was a ten. He promptly checked the CCTV and gave me the rest of my change and a free drink after about 10 minutes. The accusation sullied my experience on that one occasion, but I suppose they have all sorts of clientele. The locals gathered round the bar can be a bit intimidating as well. Can't be too bad though because I keep coming back!
