Nice pub, looks like it's been refurbished recently. Tried the home made beer which was nice. The food wasn't that good. Chicken very tough, frozen chips. Someone even walked through the pub from a store room carrying a bag of said frozen chips! When you visit a pub like this you think you're going to get fresh food and not frozen stuff. I'd return for a pint but probably not for food.

For two days in a row we were turned away from getting food due to it being fully booked.

This I completely understand however on the second day we turned up at 11:45 and were told "Sorry we're not open yet, come back at 12:00". We dutifully waited outside for another 15mins, then went back in to be told "We're fully booked come back at 2:15pm".

I find this pretty rude and/or lazy. Couldn't they have told us that 15mins ago? They knew we were waiting outside. Also bare in mind that the place was completely deserted apart from the 4 of us.

A decent pub/restaurant would have at least put some effort into accommodating our small party. For example we would have happily continued to sit outside. We weren't even looking for a full Sunday lunch just a sandwich.

It's not an experience that will stop me visiting the pub again in the future (e.g. next time we're camping nearby) but I do think the place is going downhill over the years. For example I'm not sure the addition of a micro-brewery and reduction in tables / space has really improved it much.

Ah well, hopefully next time.

Really nice pub in a beautiful small village around 6 miles from Brecon. Didn't stay here overnight but the food and beer was great and the pub retains many of the original features, while being modern and chic! Really nice and worth a visit!
