My new favourite Hay pub/restaurant...fantastic array of real ales, international beers and ciders, including lots of great local beers and ciders. Food is excellent, you must try their home made pies. Superlative service from Jo and Jessie.

Now taken over by a Brecon brewery, it's altogether more pleasant than last time. Good beer, nice chatty staff and plenty of outside seating.

The Steak and Ale Pie was very tasty, the beer was excellent and the cheese board was amazing! Combine that with friendly service and a buzzing atmosphere and you have the makings of a great evening. Be warned, the portions are substantial!

A casual dining experience in an 18th century inn. Savoury pies, made on the premises from local ingredients, are the speciality with light lunches, salads and snacks also available. A host of real ales, craft beers, traditional ciders and fine wines juggle for position on the bar for diners and drinkers alike.
