Brown’s has had a bit of a facelift recently but some of the wooden panelling, beamed ceilings and elegant sash windows are intact. It’s convivial and warm downstairs with a cosy sitting room, a snug, a big airy bar and the dining room with huge cuts of Dexter beef hanging in a special fridge. You breakfast on full Welsh with local bacon and sausages, home baked bread, eggs from a nearby farm and also pancakes, kedgeree and surprise guest appearances.
Food is wholesome, high end pub grub: fresh fish, homemade burgers, triple cooked chips, and steak, lots of different cuts – perfectly rustled up by head chef Paulo from Brazil. There are bottled Welsh beers, Welsh gins and vodkas and a wine list that’s heavier on the reds because of the steaks.
Bedrooms (some in the main building, some next door) are all a good size and have pod coffee machines, a mini fridge with Prosecco and homemade fudge. You’ll sleep soundly, it’s quiet here.
