Home cooked and tasty Sunday lunch. Plenty of veg and friendly and efficient staff. Parking right outside. Two sittings available but best to book as used by lots of locals and fills up quickly. Will be back.

Had dinner in their bar area. Food was tasty and portions were perfect. Staff were friendly to non guests so that's good too. WiFi excellent, toilets small but clean and useable. Overall a nice place.

The George Borrow is a 17th Century coaching inn and is named after the famous writer who stayed here in 1852. The Red Kite can be seen in its natural habitat from our rooms. The ideal place to relax, unwind, soak ...More in the ambiance and atmosphere and enjoy excellent food and drink.Situated just one mile from the new international mountain bike circuits at Nant-y-Arian we have lock-up facilities for bicycles in our many outbuildings.
