The Roast Ox Inn

Classic pub food in restored rural local

At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year
Dog friendly

In stunning countryside close to Hay-on-Wye and Brecon, the Roast Ox is traditional through and through – a country pub fully restored using venerable building materials and methods. Expect rustic brick floors, stone walls, old fireplaces and a classic pub atmosphere alongside comfortable furnishings and local Wye Valley Butty Bach ale tapped straight from the barrel. Head for the dining room, originally a blacksmith’s workshop, for home-cooked and locally sourced fodder. Typical are twice-cooked pork spare ribs in barbecue sauce; Welsh faggots with creamy mash; and a board of Welsh cheeses to die for, served with apple chutney and oat biscuits.
