Twelve pretty bedrooms, all en-suite, TV, etc and most with fantastic views of the surrounding hills. And no passing traffic! We have a busy kitchen producing modern pub food that is healthy, hearty, flavoursome and fresh. And great value. And you’ve a wide choice of eating venues. Three bars, each with their own individual character, some with terraces out into the garden, some with real fires, and all with real ale. Try our oak panelled restaurant, believed to feature in the Mary Webb novel “The House in Dormer Forest”. And when the weather is warm, take a drink, (or even dinner itself), to our beautiful south facing gardens with fantastic terrace and raised fish ponds. And watch the sun go down over the Welsh hills beyond. Perfect!
