We ate here on Easter Sunday so really busy but the landlord took the time to search out a table for us. The food was well cooked and good value.

The pub is old and quaint. We used it as our new local as it was so atmostpheric. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The cake on the bar was delicious. The local customers are friendly and not loud at all.

Although it looks your trad friendly mid-Wales pub, the food isn't. What, no Sunday lunch menu? You can get that everywhere (incl next door). Instead here they have a very clever range. The tapas is excellent & well priced at £3-£5 a go, and very...More

Four of us chanced upon The Castle while looking for lunch in Rhayader one Tuesday in May 2012. The interior of the pub is pleasantly traditional with beams and horse brasses; the barman was friendly and welcoming; there was a good choice of real ales;...More
