Dog Friendly Places to Eat When Visiting Our Pumpkin Farm, Brecon

Dog Friendly Places to Eat When Visiting Our Pumpkin Farm, Brecon

There's nothing quite like making a day of it, is there?  A visit to a dog-friendly pumpkin farm, a quick walk close by after picking pumpkins (with your takeaway coffee and cake) to give the dog a much needed run, and then somewhere to stop at for lunch that welcomes your four legged friends :-)

We're spoiled for choice around here for good places to eat, so why not make a meal of it *pun intended* when visiting our pumpkin farm, by Brecon.

For Snacks/Lunches when visiting our Pumpkin Farm, Brecon

We've tried to pick a location that sits on each road you might travel on to get to our pumpkin farm, just outside Brecon.  And each of these are only a 10 minute drive away, so really close by.  These are listed in no particular order :-)

- The Honey Cafe, Bronllys

The closest to us, and just off the A468, this is the road if you're heading back over Talgarth or towards Hay on Wye.   A beautiful old mill, the red brick building has two rooms inside and a large seating area outside under umbrella cover.   The best thing about here are the views over Mynydd Troed and the Black Mountains if you're sitting outside.

A lovely extensive lunch time menu that caters well to vegetarians, and generous home made cake portions, this is a popular stop for many travellers, with plenty of parking close by.

- The Griffin Inn, Llyswen

Located on the A470, on the junction in the busy village of Llyswen.  A gorgeous old pub with a laid back style, good quality and decent home cooked food is served here, along with a good selection of beer.

Parking is either in a small car park right next to the pub as you drive down to the junction, or if this is full(or a little too tight) there is a small car park across the road just off the junction. Releaxed atmosphere, and very friendly, serves hot food at lunchtimes and evenings.

- The Coffee Box, Brecon

Located in the town itself, just off Bethel Square, this is my favourite coffee shop in Brecon.  Can highly recommend the coffee,  and their sandwiches and toasties are lovely too.  Generously filled and tasty, using fresh ingredients.  The menu changes sometimes, but if the vegetarian toastie is available with red roasted peppers, pesto and lots of other tasty stuff, try it, you won't be disappointed.

For something a little more special after picking your pumpkins on our pumpkin farm, by Brecon

Gwilym and I loved making a 'date day' of something simple like visiting a pumpkin farm, and would regularly stop for a meal on the way home.  With a child in tow, it's no longer so romantic!  But if you're fancying a treat, or there's a group of you coming up and fancy making a special trip then the below are great places to dine.  For evenings, it's essential you ring up in advance to check opening dates, times and availability.  Some of these places have long waiting lists!

- The Griffin Inn, Felinfach

A favourite haunt of ours before COVID, this is just a couple fo minutes from where the pumpkin farm is based, this side of Brecon.  The highly acclaimed Griffin regularly features in the Top 100 lists in the Telegraph, Times and any other food critic style publication out there.  Dine from the excellent value standard menu, or choose from the a-la-carte, this really is a treat not to be missed.  Extensive wines, and a good selection of local ciders, beers and ales, this is relaxed dining at the top level.  Plenty of parking, and rooms for you to stay overnight should you choose.

- The Foyles, Glasbury

A beautifully restored and decorated building, this offers stunning setting and excellent food.  Parking is located just down the side of the building, and there's several tables outside for al-fresco dining on a nice evening.  Bedrooms are available if you wish to stay (but am not sure if the bedrooms are dog friendly)

Great menu, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff.

- Three Horseshoes, Groesfordd

-Located just outside of Brecon just off the A470 heading out towards Abergavenny, this is a little more awkward to find, although is sign posted.  Parking is hopeless, on the side of the street next to the estate, or do what we do, and park at the bottom of the hill and walk up (vehicles are perfectly safe).  Beer garden out the back of the building, which has lovely views ove rhte Brecon Beacons.

Excellent food, beautiful old pub, and occasionally a guest Michelin star chef comes in to cook, which is a real treat.

- Hills, Brecon

The place to go for a funky take on a Burger.  Stunning food, contemporary atmosphere, this is where all the cool kids hang out!  Lively atmosphere, excellent food menu, and you can even see into the kitchen, depending on where you sit, able to watch the chefs prepare the burgers in front of you!

Plenty of parking, and a large campsite next door if you wanted to pull up your van and make a weekend of it.  


You wouldn't go wrong with any of the above, and they're all dog friendly (although some may be sitting outside).  As with all places, post pandemic has not been kind to even the best of what our area has to offer, and many are running reduced hours, and even reduced days.  Please ring any of these places if you're looking to make a special trip, and book in advance, so that you're not disappointed.

Tell me if there's anywhere that you love eating out at when you visit us here on the pumpkin farm, and we can add it to the list :-)
