Staying in Machynlleth for the comedy festival, we came across this little delight looking for breakfast one morning. Was quiet when we arrived but soon got busy. Breakfast was delicious, well priced and staff were lovely. If I was in the area I'd definately visit again for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

We have visited 21s many times, staff are friendly, the atmosphere is great and the location is ideal BUT we have decided not to go anymore unless we hear things are changing. There is no doubt the chef can cook but given the price we feel the dishes need to improve. Don't get me wrong the meat and fish is... More
