The Bear Crickhowell - Wales


The Bear is famous far and wide for its welcoming atmosphere, historic character, convivial surroundings and good food. A cobbled forecourt, archway into the inner courtyard and 19th-century stagecoach timetable in the bar are all reminders of the Bear's former role. Set in the heart of The Brecon Beacons National Park, one of Britain’s most beautiful wilderness areas, you'll find some of the finest walks in Britain with the Beacons themselves and The Black Mountains right on the doorstep.

The Bear's low-beamed bar, filled with antiques and warmed by a roaring log fire in winter, has twice won the ‘Best Pub in Britain' award. Although a building of great antiquity, dating back to1432, the Bear tastefully incorporates all modern comforts into its historic surroundings.
