A substantial old stone building beside the canal, with "assorted nooks and crannies" as described by Steve below. There are a few bench tables at the front, but the garden beside the canal is worth having a look, even if you don't sit there to drink your beer.

The bar is central and immediately inside the front door, but the hand pumps are around to the right: seven of them (see photos), with six beers on at the time of my visit. The walls are a mixture of rustic plaster and bare stone, with lots of pictures, bric a brac and jugs.

If I had a complaint it would be that the beers are all pretty average and run of the mill; there's nothing that makes you go, "Ooh, they've got that - I must have some". Felinfoel and Brains are never going to shake the world, and although I like Wye Valley Bitter, I'd had plenty of that in Herefordshire; I would have liked something else here in Wales.

The White Hart Inn is an ancient coaching Inn with a large bar area and then a separate beamed dining room off to the side. A wonderful traditional interior with the main bar area being stone walled with a flagstone floor on a couple of levels and large fire places. The square serving area is in the middle with the bar space with its assorted nooks and crannies going around it. Then there is some external bench seating to the front of the pub but the best external drinking area is up the back stairs to the tables by the side of the canal.
There are six ale and one cider hand pumps on the bar and usually beers from the Rhymney and Felinfoel breweries are available. For our visit four beer pumps were operational with Felinfoel Double Dragon, and Rhymney Bitter being complemented by Eclipse and Sundown from the Untapped Brewing Co. from Monmouth and these were well kept.
This is a fine traditional old Coaching Inn for a beer and would normally be more than adequate in any village. But with the Star Inn also a few paces down the road I wonder if the good residents of Talybont on Usk realise how blessed they are ?
