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

Had a lovely evening meal here in restaurant. Also had the best glass of Rioja I have had in a pub. Reason for not giving 'excellent' is that our food came without salad or veg and yet they weren't on the menu as 'sides'. Food lovely otherwise

Fantastic atmosphere - wood fire in the winter, lovely outdoor garden in the summer. Beautiful food served in a gorgeous setting. Full of locals, lots of local competitions going on too - like who can grow the biggest potato in a bucket! Welcoming to visitors too. Lovely for a mid day snack, a quick basket meal at the bar or...

Me and my wife called in looking for somewhere to eat. The restaurant was fully booked but it was no trouble to the staff to have a table prepared for us in the pub. The food served was excellent and very good value and it was well worth the visit and we would definitely go again when next in the... More

It only took one step to go from a country pub to an oak beamed restaurant. I took a couple of friends to a meal at this pub at their recommendation and assumed it would be "Pub Grub". I was amazed to find stepping from the bar area into this oak beamed dining area a restaurant which has such a... More

Description
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...
