We have a dining room serving delicious homely food and a bar, with a cosy open fire and beams throughout. We also have a function room that can cater for thirty people; a private room, away from the bar, which could be used for meetings, conferences, birthday parties, christenings, funerals etc.

The Dolfor Inn is located in a small rural community, about ten minutes away from Newtown (a small market town north of Powys) in Wales.
