Visited (once again) after walking up on the gorgeous local hills. A quick chat with the chef and the Lemon Sole was decided upon and came after a short wait by the open fire with a real ale Tip top fish cooked to unfussy perfection.

Butty Batch beer and proper pub food. Great place, back again tonight. Beer should go down even better as we’ve just walked up the highest mountain in the black mountains a couple of miles away

Visited this pub while camping in Cwdu. Its an excellent local pub. Very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. The food and beer was top class and reasonably priced. There is a large outside section out the back and the pub is dog friendly. Highly recommend!

This place is welcoming and serves brilliant food and great beer. Apparently it's now owned by the local community - and they have chosen tenants who can cook well and who know how to welcome visitors. Plenty of locals here too. Thoroughly recommended

I was camping on the local site so decided to eat at the local pub. It's a fairly nice pub. And it's handy for the campsite prob about 300m away. Beer - ok, decent range and well kept, not too expensive. Food - Menu is...More
