Although it looks your trad friendly mid-Wales pub, the food isn't.
What, no Sunday lunch menu? You can get that everywhere (incl next door).
Instead here they have a very clever range.
The tapas is excellent & well priced at £3-£5 a go, and very good it is too. My partner had meatballs, ham & chorizo croquettes and marinaded aubergine & peppers and was very pleased.
But if you don't fancy that (or, as like my parents, insist it isn't a proper meal) the specials should tempt you.
My lad had a GIANT portion of tasty fish, chips peas & salad,and my rabbit in onion gravy was superb. Lots of rabbit & the richest, tastiest sauce you ever had. I had bread dipping in from all sides.
I wouldn't have normally chosen Banks' Sunbeam as my drink, but a limited choice forced me, and what a treat it was. Perfect summer ale.
Worryingly quiet for a Sunday - what do the people of Rhayader want?
Only gripe is there is no kids' portions, which led to us over-ordering. I suppose could have had a fish tapas, but if they offered kids' portions of the specials for, say, £2.50 less we'd have given it a 5.
Also, we appreciated the cheese & crisps on the counter on arrival, and the locals seemed to appreciate the free mid-afternoon battered fish!
