A Little History

The pub is over 300 years old, it was originally a hill farm owned by The Glan Usk Estate. Over the years the farm gradually became a pub. We are over 1000ft above sea level ( highest pub in the Brecon Beacons).
Originally the pub was called The Castle Inn, named after the iron age hill fort ( Castell Dinas ) the ruins stand on the hill directly behind the pub. We have decided to rename it The Dragons Back, after the ridge leading from Castell Dinas.
The Dragons Back ( formerly The Castle Inn ), is the highest pub in the Brecon Beacons National Park, a Country Inn with plenty of accommodation, b&b rooms, bunkhouses and a campsite.

Located in a glorious valley, over 1000ft above sea level in The Black Mountains – part of The Brecon Beacons National Park.

We cater for all customers, particularly large groups e.g. Stag/hen/bikers & corporate/military team building – due to the size and nature of our accommodation, bunkhouse, b&b and Shepherds hut we can sleep up to 40 people indoors, we also have a small camp site, for tents only. All our accommodation is available at very modest prices.

We are ideally situated for the local towns of Brecon, Hay on Wye & Crickhowell.
A whole host of activities are available on our doorstep, and you can mountain bike – The killer loop, or hike a huge variety of walks straight from the Inn . The whole of The Black Mountains are literally on our doorstep.
The pub provides generous servings of simple tasty home cooked food, a fine selection of local real ales, with a huge log fire on one side of the pub, and a lovely log burning stove with leather sofas to sit on.
Alternatively you can stay in one of our bunkhouses/bunkbarn, and cook with a fully equipped self-catering dining kitchen.

We regularly cater for guests from all over the UK, and quite frequently from further afield, we believe this cosmopolitan mix, helps give The Dragons Back a very interesting and welcoming atmosphere.
