Elen’s Castle was once owned by the Earl of Ancaster, who sold it to his gamekeeper. The latter opened it as a coaching inn around 1880. Now a family-run free house, it boasts an old-world bar with a wood-burning stove and an intimate restaurant with views of the mountains and Lledr River. Sample dishes include sweet potato and spinach curry; local Welsh chops with new potatoes and seasonal vegetables; and deep-filled shortcrust Welsh Black beef pie.
