High quality food, with excellent presentation. Friendly bar staff and waitresses, oak beamed dining room with log fire added to the ambience. The upstairs toilet and wash room was very clean. Varied menu that catered for vegetarians and vegans, comfortable seating. Would highly recommend.

Went here for Sunday Lunch to celebrate my Mum's Birthday and we were very impressed indeed with the quantity and quality of the fare on offer. Everything was cooked to perfection and wonderfully tasty. Extra veg? No problem, no extra charge! Drinks very reasonably priced and we left feeling replete but not overly stuffed. The staff were wonderfully welcoming and... More

We live in Montgomery in Powys, which is not actually that far away from Bettws Cedewain. Having eaten here with my parents a few weeks ago to celebrate my birthday, we ate here again this evening and found that the food and the service were every bit as excellent. The menu offers a varied, extensive range of choices while the... More

We took my grandad out for lunch yesterday and although we found the building and location exceptional we were left with question marks over the service. First we were greeted with confusion to if we could sit in the restaurant or not and then after waiting a good 10mins for drinks to arrive the hot chocolate was luke warm. The... More

The Bull and Heifer is a small but vibrant little country pub in the heart of the village of Bettws Cedewain, near Newtown. It's a traditional black and white public house, with oodles of character and charm, where you are sure of a warm welcome, whenever you arrive. This family pub is a recent addition to the village, yet it's hard to believe that it hasn't been 'The local' for years...
