5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


For the last nine years, Chris and Angela have been running this ancient Welsh longhouse tucked up a lane near the parish church, and there are no plans to change. The wonderful interior is spick-and-span timeless: 14th-century slate flooring in the bar, tongue-and-groove in a room that fits a dozen diners, crannies crammed with memorabilia, an ancient curved settle, an antique reader’s chair, two fires and a happy crowd. Accompany a pint of Wye Valley or Three Tuns bitter with a Welsh Black rump steak with chips, or sea bass with salsa verde. Or take a ploughman’s to a seat in the garden and gaze on the spectacular Radnor Valley. Five comfy rooms have countryside views, colourful Welsh blankets on the beds, bright bathrooms (some are shower rooms) and a farmhouse feel. Bracingly full breakfasts set you up for a day of exploring the wonderful Radnor Valley, or dipping into the shops of Hay-on-Wye. Life in this tiny village, like its glorious pub, remains delightfully unchanged.

The very epitome of an authentic country pub, time-worn and well-loved, welcoming and comfortable. The view alone is worth the visit and on a warm summer’s evening there can’t be a finer place in which to sup a well-kept locally brewed pint and soak up the open skies and deep peace. The food is a big draw too, fresh, local and well-cooked classics and more modern dishes. An absolute gem of a pub.

David, Sawday's inspector
