Y Bwyty Bach is the new restaurant from highly-renowned chef Connor Turner. Set in a converted two-centuries'-old barn opposite the iconic Tretower Castle, Y Bwyty Bach is a short drive from the picturesque town of Crickhowell, where Chef Connor grew up.

Having mastered his trade across some of the best restaurants in South Wales, Chef Connor's taken the decision to launch his own venue, offering his own vision and passion for food and destination dining. Through the best produce our local suppliers have to offer, the regularly changing menus are designed to provide our guests opportunity to try as much as possible through small and large plates - whether they're sharing, or not sharing. Six-course taster menus are also available for those searching for the full Y Bwyty Bach experience.

Unlike dinner and Sunday Lunch, we don't take reservations for Lunch Tuesday-Saturday, so please walk-in and we'll be sure to find you a table.

    Ridiculously good food! Best meal we have had for ages. Each course of the tasting menu was great, cannot fault it. Inside the restaurant was beautiful and staff were very friendly. Music choice (non stop rap music) was slightly strange for the setting and won’t be to everyone’s taste but we will be returning.

    Just the most amazing restaurant! Everything is perfect from the ambiance to the sublime food and wine! This is the restaurant that should be at the very top of everyone’s ‘have to visit’ list and then I know it will be at the top of their ‘have to go again’ list! For me it’s on my ‘have to go again and again and again’ list!

We had the taster menu which was served at just the right pace and each course was full of flavour and beautifully presented I didn't want each course to end! We will definitely be returning!

    A beautiful, ancient building with a thoroughly modern approach to hospitality. An absolute gem. A lovely warm welcome, a helpful explanation of the menu and a wonderful evening. There is a five course tasting menu or else the Idea is that you have a few sharing plates - or a selection of small dishes for yourself. The food was just superb. A lovely treacle bread with seaweed butter, followed by beautifully presented plaice with lovely zingy fresh toppings.. Then the most tender of duck breast slices with gooseberry and aged feta with a silky pomme purée. An extra was a crumpet with Tunworth cheese - just a couple of mouthful as we shared but well worth it. The baked yoghurt dessert with raspberry sorbet and a pink pepper tuile was perfection. A great wine list too - we did not try the cocktails but they looked fun. The staff were really lovely, friendly, attentive but not obtrusive. I cannot recommend highly enough - it’s very different from other favourite local venues but a very welcome new addition to the local dining experience. Thank you!

    Excellent food - faultless. We would have preferred not to have 3 sweet courses, particularly as my wife does not eat them. The level and choice of music was, to us, intrusive, but it was turned down on request. Good wine list as well. Service was attentive, but not over zealous. We will definitely come back.

    We enjoyed our evening and gave lots of feedback. It’s only been open 6 weeks. It’s a work in progress with ambitious ideas. We think they will do well. The restaurant was full. The building/ atmosphere is great. It has great potential. We hope they do very well. Whilst trying to target “foodies,” we think they should also target locals adjusting their menu a touch.

    Excellent all round experience. The chef Certainly has a flair for putting flavours together that compliment each other. My taste buds were dancing all night. The staff are very knowledgable about the dishes they are serving and are very polite. The ambience was delightful with the decor very well suited to the historic setting. Well done Connor and your team. We Will be back soon and will definitely be recommending to family and friends that they pay you visit for that extra special something needed on a night out.

    What a beautiful setting. Imaginative menu, very different, beautifully presented. Had six course taster menu but really it was 5 courses as the creamed potato and truffle was a side dish not a main. Bit too much sweet stuff at the end, some cheese would have been a better finish. But really nice meal and well presented, extremely good service. Would definitely come again

    We booked a table for a birthday treat. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, the music was great (not too loud) and the cocktails were delicious. We chose the tasting menu and we are so glad we did; each course was a unique blend of flavours which were unexpected and absolutely delicious. The portions were perfect and we left feeling pleasantly full and very happy. This venue is a brilliant addition to the area. Congratulations to all the team!

    outstanding food and service! really delighted to have this special place nearby. music was too loud and inappropriate for a divine dining experience. love the red hot chili peppers but not with treacle bread and seaweed butter. great vibes for a hoppin’ kitchen, not for the dining room.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Ybwtybach. The food was delicious, original and fresh, served by friendly and efficient staff. However the taster menu, which we chose, was pricey and the portions small (as one would expect). I do think that a free jug of tap water would be a welcome option. The nod to the birthday in the form of chocolate wishes with the fudge was an appreciated touch. This meal was for a special occasion and the overall price therefore bearable but at these prices I think a return visit is unlikely unless it coincides with a special celebration. Given that the restaurant is a bit out on a limb in Tretower, I doubt it will be booked out every night and I think the very talented team will need to introduce more affordable options to draw steady trade, especially at lunchtime. Well done though and thanks to Connor, Daf and the serving staff for a memorable evening. We wish you well and hope your restaurant is successful.
