Called in to The Bank for lunch today. Three of us, all three meals were excellent, very tasty, nice and hot and well presented. Waitress helpful and police. Meals arrived promptly. Only small complaint was that it was cold in the room but meal was excellent.

On a freezing cold Thanksgiving we visited Brecon with our US friends, stopped at The Bank for a warm and a bite to eat. The place was beautiful with a warm welcome and a cosy atmosphere, friendly, helpful staff and amazing food.

Didn't eat here but the food looked fantastic. We took our dog here and he was welcomed with a handful of treats and his own bowl of water. The Doombar was OK Too!
