Giglios

One of the few music-free places in Brecon. Pleasant atmosphere, although tables are a bit close together, and mobile phones can be intrusive. However, good light meals and drinks and pleasant service, even if a bit slow when the place is crowded.

Compasses Inn, Chicksgrove

So far off the beaten track it takes some finding, this marvellously unpretentious pub in deep south Wiltshire is very much worth the journey. Closed Mondays except in the summer season. Children are warmly welcomed (there's a play area outside in decent weather) and dogs on leads are accepted.
