Day 21 of the Brecon Beacons Advent Calendar – Best Places for a Christmas Eve Drink

The Bear, Crickhowell

The focal point of Crickhowell’s idyllic high street it’s hard to resist wandering into this historic hotel. The traditional low beams, roaring log fire and antiques that fill the award-winning bar means it’s a hit with those who like to do things the old-fashioned way. It is the perfect place to quietly wile away  the final hours before the big day.

The Star Inn, Talybont

Sitting on the Brecon and Monmouthshire canal, make sure you don’t pass by this hidden gem whilst enjoying your winter walk. The Star won South Wales CAMRA Pub of the Year 2013 and it’s easy to see why; its cosy interior and great selection of ales easily entice you in from the cold.

The George, Brecon

In the heart of the town lies this delightful hotel with a welcoming atmosphere and a conservatory where you can star gaze, drink in hand, whilst avoiding the chill.

The Castle, Llandovery

Everyone is welcome in this friendly hotel who pride themselves on fantastic food made from only local produce. With those appetising menus we won’t be surprised if a quick drink in the bar turns into a three course meal.
