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 emphasizes local meats and produce—in, for example, a pork, apple, and sage burger, or roast salmon in a white wine and cheese sauce. The two-course lunch menu is an excellent value for the money at just £12. You can even opt for an overnight stay in one of the country-style rooms (from about £100 per night).
