The Lounge Bar ...

A delightful, Georgian room, with two cosy fireplaces, deep leather sofas, comfortable armchairs and superb mountain views.  Visitors may relax here from early morning with \'bean fresh\' coffee or tea.  Afternoon teas with cakes are served throughout the afternoon. In our bar we aim to provide excellent food with a twist, local real ales and wines in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. 



For many months of the year visitors can enjoy a quiet drink in our riverside garden sitting next to the waterfall on the the River Honddu with the backdrop of historic Brecon Castle or else our south facing terrace with extensive views over Georgian Brecon town and up to Pen-y-Fan and the Brecon beacon mountains will enhance any outdoor eating and drinking experience.
