Places to Eat and Drink in Llanidloes

Here are a few places just down the road you might like to try if you would like to eat out during your stay in the cottages.

The Angel Inn
High Street, Llanidloes, Powys SY18 6BY. Telphone: 01686 414635
The Angel is one of LLanidloes' historic timber framed coaching inns, built in 1748. The low oak beamed ceiling in the public bar and lounge are full of character and provide a cozy and attractive environment for meeting and making friends. They serve traditional ales and there is bar food available most days between Noon and 2pm and 6-9pm. There is also a quiet beer garden to the rear of the building.

Bistro Hafren
2 Great Oak Street, Llanidloes, Powys SY18 6BN. Telphone: 01686 414936
Right in the centre of town next to Barclays Bank is Bistro Hafren, a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike. Open throughout the day for coffee or light meals for all the family, the Bistro transforms itself in the evening into an elegant yet relaxing restaurant with a wine list to match. Whatever time of day you visit, you can be sure of a warm welcome from the cheerful staff, who will go to any length to ensure you enjoy your visit to the Bistro.

High Street, Llanidloes, Powys, SY18 6BY. Telphone: 07973 782646
The Cobblers Tea Rooms is a small and cosy establishment located in the area known colloquially as the 'Top of Town'. It is situated in one of a terrace of cottages built in the 1830s and is one of only a few remaining examples of a regional type of house, having a central chimney behind a central main entrance and the principal rooms arranged on either side of the chimney breast. Once believed to have been a public house called 'The Comrades Arms' the building has since been divided into two, with the Cobblers having at various times seen use as a grocers and confectioners, a furniture emporium and a shoe shop and cobblers.

Great Oak Cafe
12 Great Oak Street, Llanidloes, Powys SY18 6BU
In the evenings the Café becomes the venue for world class jazz performances, DJ's By The Yard and many many other music and cultural events. We also hire out the Café to local groups for meetings and the like for a nominal charge.

Lloyds Hotel
Cambrian Place, Llanidloes SY18 6BX. Telphone: 01686 412284 / 01686 412666
Dining at Lloyds is a leisurely occasion, an evening to linger over delicious, freshly prepared dishes, made especially for you. The menu is a surprise one, from a very wide ranging and steadily growing repertoire: the inspiration comes from personal favourites, a diverse collection of recipe books, regularly added to, and dictionaries of international cuisine. British and European influences are perhaps the strongest.

Mount Inn
China Street, Llanidloes, Powys, SY18 6AB. Telphone: 01686 412247
The Mount is a delightful 14th century black and white half beamed coaching inn originally built on the site of a Motte & Bailey castle. Our business consists of a pub, restaurant and bed & breakfast, car park and pub garden and patio.

The Red Lion
Trefeglwys, Powys, SY17 5PH. Telphone: 01686 430255
A traditional Welsh country pub where you can enjoy a drink from our wide selection of beers, wines and spirits, including traditional cask ales, or even a cup of tea or coffee in our genuine oak beamed bar, in winter warmed by a real log fire.

In addition to the above, there are also an Indian Takeaway/restaurant and a Fish and Chip shop both situated in the centre of LLanidloes.
