We stopped for lunch here. Had mushroom soup and owner pasta n sweet potato wedges. Everything was awesome here. Will definitely recommend this to anyone passing by Llysen. The decor if the place is also very well done.

The lady at the counter welcomed us and she took our order at the table. Welsh Rarebit came with delicious salad including olives, beetroot and vinaigrette. Finished with great tea and coffee. Service great from start to finish.

Stopped here for lunch on way to a hostel for a walking weekend with friends. I hadn't been well and fancied a light lunch. Very impressed with home made soup and rolls. Just £4 each. Definitely stop here again if passing.

Perfect spot for a stop. Great service, friendly and helpful staff. Seating inside and outside (if weather permits). Parking onsite for patrons. Can be a bit noisy on a Sunday sitting outside with multiple motorcycle and car enthusiasts driving past and using the intersection - but also interesting to see the vehicles.

Was off shopping to Brecon and thought we would try out the revamped Why Knot Stop. Plenty of parking, great welcome and super food and drink. I had a beef cobble with a cheese scone on top..... gorgeous. They have coalhouse coffee too which is really nice.
