Cracking country retreat with full spa facilities, nice rooms, and excellent food. Well worth a visit either for an evening meal (book in advance for a dining room table or you will have to eat in the bar or snug room), or a weekend break. Lovely surroundings in its own extensive grounds and a great base for visiting the Brecon... More

We went here for dinner here as recommended by staff at our B&B but were very disappointed. Very slow service by disinterested staff. Lamb was extremely tough, chicken dish was bland. Food is very expensive and definitely not worth it. Don't bother!

Visited on 5 3 16, by 12.15 the place was packed. That says it all ! I had the rib eye steak and my Wife had the sirlion steak. Excellent! There is nothing more to say! Best place in South Wales, without a doubt!

One of the worst pork meals I've eaten !!! Although a discount was given due to the discontent how they could pass it off as local produced pork loin I really do not know......we're they insulting the producer, the 'local' butcher or the consumer . Whatever their ploy they failed dismally.

We had an overnight stay as a christmas present. The food in the bistro was exceptional. The roasted welsh lamb just melted in the mouth. Also the staff were very friendly and couldn`t do enough for you.We will definitely return.

The Nant Ddu Restaurant is a lovely place to visit with excellent food ....but make sure you book well in advance on a weekend as it can get booked up really quickly! If however you are lucky enough to get a booking...the food is truly amazing .....especially the meat dishes!! Also it is not too overpriced as in some restaurants,... More

I come here quite a bit as I am originally from the area and my family still live there. I generally always like the food as it is freshly cooked. It has a lovely homely atmosphere. But make sure you get there early for a pub meal if you have not booked on a weekend as it gets very busy.... More

We ate at the Nant Ddu on a Thursday as it seems to be always fully booked at weekends! Once again the food was excellent and the service was equally as good. Our meals ranged from the confit duck, lamb to sirloin steak. The desserts, cheesecake (with toffee & apple sauce), sticky toffee pudding and the pineapple upside down cake... More
