Reviewed 20 May 2013

Looking for a reasonably priced B & B for a family wedding in the area the River Cafe, Glasbury was spot on, good location, comfortable clean room, good food and friendly staff, just a pity I couldn't stop more than 1 night.

Agree with all the comments, lovely place, Great Coffee and cakes, sit outside and watch the world go by...perfect. Add to this by taking in some Kayaking with River Strokes, great tuition even for a old duffer like me, thanks to Dan for a great time

We did not stay overnight as we live relatively locally. This is a little jewel of a place sat on the bridge at Glasbury. The atmosphere is friendly and intimate. The staff are friendly and regardless of being busy have time to chat and provide a welcoming service. The setting is quaint with local art displayed and a brand new Vespa for hire in the reception area. I menu is varied and relies heavily on good quality local produce- highly recommended for an evening meal or even a coffee overlooking the River Wye.

Stayed at River Cafe on a spur of the moment trip to Wales to get some kayaking practice with Dan from River Strokes (which was also great); River Cafe was the meeting place with him so seemed to make sense to stay there. That was a bit of luck. Great location, amazing service, good room and lovely food. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Shower was piping hot after a day on the water. Bed really comfy. Dinner and breakfast - including a takeaway bacon sandwich - were great for both quality and quantity. Definately where I'll stay next time!

Great location overlooking river, contemporary, food homemade - lovely soup (celeriac with fresh ciabatta bread £4.50) didn't have main dish but they looked good, dessert tasty (panacotta perfectly made with poached seasonal fruits £5.50).

Will definitely return - good to know they serve meals in evening. Closed Sunday night, Monday & Tuesday.

Only 5 mins from hay-on-wye for shops and more great pubs / cafes

Lovely food, great service and a really nice place to eat and relax. clean airy and spacious. to start I had chorizo and scallop salad beautifully cooked and presented. The homemade pasta crab dish could of been slighty bigger in portion but was divine none the less. We would be regulars if only it was closer! We will definetly return!
