The Stag Inn, Llanidloes

Final pub in Llanidloes for me on Saturday. Still no sign of the hens in the Stag. Still no sign of any real cider either. Apparently they took the real cider out a year or two ago. I don't believe there is any in town now. The 2 ales were Three Tuns Rantipole & Fullers ESB. I hadn't come all this way for a London beer. So I opted for the Rantipole, which was fine. The local youth were holding a rave in the rear room, whilst playing pool. The noise in the bar was a bit too much. But there were more dogs than humans. There appeared to be a garden at the rear.

The Angel Inn, Llanidloes

My penultimate pub in Llanidloes was the Angel. It was a quiet two or three roomed pub, which was showing international rugby. The locals seemed to be happy that South Africa were launching a comeback against England. There were more hens in here - Old Golden Hen was accompanied by Old Speckled Hen. Abbot & Butty Bach were also present.

Old Mill Bar, Llanidloes

The Old Mill is a former social club tucked away through an archway from the High Street, but also accessible from a car par at the rear. You walk through local residents' gardens to get in. Music being played didn't seem befitting to a pub in a small market town in rural Wales. But maybe this is the place the local hipsters hang out. Although there were no other customers on my visit. The young barman assured me it had been packed earlier and all the punters were attending a function in the pub's function room. He offered me a piece of chocolate cake! Ales looked encouraging - Ludlow Blonde & Black Night & Wye Valley The Hopfather. I selected the Black Night, but it ran out before I could get a full glass - disappointing as it was the only dark ale present in 12 pubs visited in Powys on this day. I went for The Hopfather instead, which was far better than I expected, given I don't normally enjoy hoppy beers. This is the only Llanidloes pub in the current Good Beer Guide and I would rate it as the best in the town.
