You can fuel yourself for the day at the Tea Rooms which offer full breakfast, lunch and snack menus, along with a great range of tempting cakes and desserts. The Tea Rooms are licensed, so you can also relax and unwind after a rewarding day in the hills with a local beer or wine. There is a full range of teas, coffees and soft drinks too, to quench that well earnt thirst. Our shop is also open during the summer season and is also well worth a visit. It stocks those all-important maps and guides, along with a number of essential items that will help make your day go smoothly. During the winter months we have an unstaffed Information Point in the Tea Rooms for your basic information needs. With an outdoor play area, wildlife garden and trail for the children, you could spend the day with us! Come and visit, you will not be dissapointed.

We'd been walking over the drizzly Nature Reserve and headed back here soaked through. Luckily lunch was still being served and we both had good pies from the canteen on the ground floor. Not spectacular but just what we needed - good food and a warm place to sit for a bit! There was a lovely children's play area outside... More

Visited today with husband and elderly mother in law. Staff really accommodated mother in law's poor appetite with small and tempting portions of welsh faggot and veg whilst we enjoyed some Bara Brith and Chelsea bun. Stunning views and interesting gift shop. Would recommend.

Useful base for walks in the Beacons . Large carpark with reasonable charges . Toilets and cafe. Queue was long and food was really dreary and unimaginative , but portion sizes were good and it was inexpensive . Picnic tables outside looking out to the mountains .

Not far off the main road. Interesting information at the visitor centre. Friendly staff who can give information on the various walks around the area - it was raining so we took a walk for just 1 km or so along a trail and then returned for a light lunch. Actually all the meals looked quite large (cafeteria style) so... More

Very little... More

You have to pay £1 to park (£2.5 if you stay more than two hours) and the "visitor center" is just a small restaurant with a space to buy maps. The craft store upstair is nice.

Excellent location to start a hill walk especially if you don't fancy anything too strenuous, great views weather permitting, home cooked fare in the restaurant and locally made arts and crafts in the shop.
