Managed to get a last minute booking on the day at this popular restaurant. Choice of beef, lamb or pork, as well as a la carte. One of the better Sunday lunches we've had in a long time.

Lovely place, we went for a family meal, all meals were fresh, fabulous tasting and plentiful, and the trio of desserts was outstanding. I would definitely recommend this place.

Coming by bus from Merthyr Tydfil- which is the best bus service(there and back) to use and how far (walking} is the nearest bus stop from Nant Ddu is it for someone with limited mobility?

The T4 bus (to Brecon) runs right past the hotel, and I believe it is a request stop outside the hotel. The bus is operated by Stagecoach.
