Why we've chosen The Drovers Rest:

The Drovers Rest Restaurant is an attractive 18th Century restaurant and licensed cocktail bar overlooking the river Irfon, serving excellent food and also providing accommodation. We are situated in the centre of Britian's smallest town Llanwrtyd Wells, at the heart of rural Mid Wales. Relax over a leisurely breakfast or evening meal in the cosy ambience of the restaurant. We offer freshly prepared local produce along with homemade and traditional Welsh foods, and an extensive wine list. Peter's genuine warmth and hospitality welcomes all of his guests.

Review by Lucy Symons:

"Peter is a wonder - visiting with him, you get a sense that this is a man who has found his true metier and is deeply satisfied when he feeds you well and ensures you have a good nights sleep. Growing up with both parents in hospitality and sharing the responsibility for the restaurant with his sister, the Patisserie chef, and his nephew, this is a true family affair and very very cwtch indeed. "
