An old iconic “Routermaster” was recently converted into a cafe on wheels to help showcase the excellent local food and drinks that are produced in the Brecon Beacons National Park.
The Number 18 Cafe on wheels can be seen driving around, mainly in the east of the National Park on weekend. On a Saturday night it will be situated in the centre of Crickhowell acting as a cocktail bar. Then on Sunday mornings visitors heading to the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal can visit the bus, when they arrive at the Brecon canal basin.
The bus will also be visiting some festivals such as the Hay Food Festival, which takes place this weekend, the Talgarth Festival in August and the Abergavenny Food Festival in September.
The aim of the Number Eighteen Bus is to promote the Number Eighteen cafe, bar and brassiere, whilst showcasing some of the great foods made in the Brecon Beacons. Most food served on the bus is sourced within an 18-mile radius of Crickhowell, such as local gourmet smoked food producer Black Mountains Smokery and Crickhowell’s local butcher.
Every passer by is welcome to step onto the bus to enjoy the value for money, quality food and drink on offer.
