Neuadd Arms Hotel

Top choice pub in Llanwrtyd Wells (Llanwrtyd)

Like any good village pub, the Neuadd Arms is a focal point for the community. There's an interesting menu (mains £9 to £11), bed-and-breakfast rooms (singles/doubles £44/77) and excellent beers brewed in the stables out back. It's also Llanwrtyd's tourist-information point, with everything you'll need to know about mountain biking, pony trekking or hiking in the area.

It was here that former landlord Gordon Green and his punters cooked up many of the kooky events that have put Llanwrtyd Wells on the tourist trail. Today its jumble of bric-a-brac, peeling paint and friendly staff give it the charm of a bygone era long lost in most parts of the country. During winter you might join one of the farmers' dogs on the couch in front of the fire.
