Fodor's Review

A 17th-century coaching inn close to Hay's center is ideal for a lunch break while you're ransacking the bookshops. The oak-beamed bar serves food, and the breakfasts are especially good. The restaurant's sophisticated cooking has an international flavor and emphasizes local meats and produce—in, for example, a traditional stew made with local beef, mushrooms, and Butty Bach, a delicious Welsh beer. You can even opt for an overnight stay in one of the country-style rooms

(from about £90 per night).
