There are surprisingly few pubs and restaurants in the Brecon area who welcome guests with dogs (more fool them!), but the Star is not one. Called in yesterday (21st Apr 2014) whilst passing. This is a popular and busy little pub in the heart of the village of Talybont On Usk and is right adjacent to the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal so it's location (at least on a nice day) is fabulous. However for us that proved its downfall. It's popularity (rightly so) meant the few staff were really busy and all doing several jobs-serving drinks, changing barrels, taking food orders, answering the phone, serving food and so on.
Being vegetarian the choices were quite limited and unexciting. We opted for the Cumberland burger and chips. It was just ok. I really believe in supporting small businesses at times like this but I also believe a customer deserves quality and on a score of 1 -10 I'd give their food 4. The burger was ok, didn't come with relish (as it said on the menu) and the chips were pre-cut not fresh. Unimaginative and very unexciting.
If your a beer buff this is one for you as their choice of guest ales was many.
Will I eat there again? Probably not
