A hidden gem! The story of the mill is fascinating and is enthusiastically told by volunteers during a short tour. We had lunch at the restaurant - great tasting fresh food. And discovered NomNom local chocolate as well! Must visit if you are in the area.

The Mill has been lovingly restored and is a credit to the local volunteers who worked so hard and tirelessly to bring the Mill back to working strength. The adjoining cafe serves excellent home cooked locally sourced food. With off course home cooked mouth watering bread for sale.

I was given the bread making afternoon as a birthday gift on Sunday 18th September 2016. There were 6 of us altogether. The session included making 3 types of bread - a white and rye shaped loaf, a wholemeal loaf with seeds and 6 granary rolls. I thought I would only make one loaf, so this amount was such a... More

After having coffee in the Baker's Table, we had a look around the mill itself. Fascinating history of this working mill. Well worth a visit. Turn left out of the mill to walk along the bank of the stream at the back of some cottages, true country. Beautifully kept and strimmed steep banks.

We missed the tour here so only saw the big water wheel going around. Had a lovely lunch at the little cafe. Staff there were very friendly. The craft shop was also excellent.

Talgarth Mill is well worth a visit. Tour the mill alone or guided. Our guide Gordon made the mill come alive for us and gave us so much information. It was brilliant. We learned so much. We stopped in the bakers'table café for lunch. Fabulous home made bread and chutneys. The Millers lunch to share is fantastic. The homemade soup... More

We visited the mill whilst staying in Talgarth. Rob gave us a very informative tour and his knowledge of the history and recent restoration was inspiring. The staff we spoke to shared his enthusiasm. I must give a special mention to Andrea who, amongst other things, bags the flour. Whilst chatting I discovered she shared my passion for bread making... More
