The Old Mill is all about making the most of the local talent Llani has on offer, so when we were planning the bar menu it was a simple choice of who to ask to supply our beer…

The brilliant Waen Brewery is barrel rolling distance from the bar. We operate as a brewery tap for this award winning, Llanidloes based small scale brewery. We always have a selection of 3 real ales, which usually includes one or more offering from the Waen brewery along with an ever changing selection of real ales from small breweries around the UK. In the first year since we have opened we’ve been able to put on over 50 different real ales!
