Here are some recommendations and reviews for restaurants and pubs to eat and drink during your stay in the Brecon Beacons. These are all places that we or our guests have tried, and that we’d recommend.
Bridge Cafe, Brecon
Delicious, home cooked, local, seasonal food (much of it grown by themselves), cooked and served with love and care by John and Carol. The Bridge Cafe is open Thursdays to Saturdays during the Spring and Summer, and it is advisable to book as it is a very popular place.
7 Bridge St
A friendly, neighbourhood Italian restaurant serving delicious, great value authentic Italian food.
St. Mary Street
Gurkha Corner, Nepalese Restaurant and Takeaway
You get a friendly welcome and great, fresh tasting Nepalese food at Gurkha Corner. There is an interesting and exciting menu, everything is freshly cooked and carefully spiced; definitely one to try when you are visiting Brecon.
12 Glamorgan St
Zeera, Indian Restaurant and Takeaway
If you are in the mood for a freshly cooked, nicely spiced, really good quality curry then Zeera is your place.
103 The Struet
The River Cafe, Glasbury
A fantastic location overlooking the river Wye, matched by great food.
Peterstone Court Hotel
Peterstone Court has a an impressive Georgian facade and inside a restaurant that serves local food (much of it from their own farm) and a spa for a bit of pampering. The food is very good, slightly more expensive than some of the other restaurants but worth it.
The Royal Oak, Penceli
A cosy, friendly local pub, that serves good freshly cooked, local, seasonal food. Give them a ring before you go along as they aren’t open every night.
The Star, Taylbont-on-Usk
Camra’s Brecknockshire Pub of the Year 2011, a traditional pub serving a great selection of real ales and hearty homemade meals.
The Felin Fach Griffin
A country pub in a tiny village that serves seriously good food and wine. The food is probably the best you will find near Brecon, with great local produce given the star treatment with an excellent wine list and desserts to die for. Make sure you give them a call as they are very popular, especially at weekends.
Tai’r Bull, Libanus
A friendly local pub with fantastic, panoramic views of the Brecon Beacons
Tea and Coffee
Gliffaes Country House Hotel
There is only one place for afternoon tea in the Brecon Beacons (apart from Danyfan) and that is at Gliffaes. Tea is served every day from 4 to 5:30pm and a what a feast it is. There is a table in the sitting room brimming full of delicious, home made cakes, sandwiches and scones, and you are welcome to eat as much as you can. Sit at a table in the cosy sitting room by the fire, or on the terrace enjoying the views of the river and mountains, and enjoy a Welsh institution.
