This one was my main reason for visiting Landrindod but the Llanerch Inn was a fine Brucie Bonus. It's a proper micropub with no unwanted distractions, although they do also sell some specialist spirits. The room has a much higher ceiling than most of these places but the overall size of it is probably around average. It has a wooden floor and mostly lower seating.
The small bar area at the rear has five hand pumps which had Twisted Barrel Sine Qua Non, Mad Dog Oaty McOatface, Hobson's Old Henry & Best and St Annes Viking Erik Brew. I went for the Sine Qua Non, Oaty McOatface and Old Henry all at £3.00 and all in great nick.
I found this to be an excellent micropub.

The presence of this micropub and the established Llanerch Inn make Llandrindod Wells a bit of a destination town, beer-wise. Or at least they would if it wasn't so damned difficult to get to. However, here I was with the pub due to open at 4pm and my train due to leave at 16:59, which gave me enough time to do the Llanerch as well (see review). Once inside here there was a bit of a dilemma as there were two of the four beers on the bar that I rather liked the look of, and I still had to cycle to the station. I pondered the options: 9 Lives Dark or the appropriately named Fixed Wheel Mild Concussion 5.5%. (The brewer is apparently a cyclist himself, but it's almost as though he had my helmetless ride to the station in mind when naming this beer.) So I went for a half of each and I was glad I did because the Dark was good, but the Mild Concussion was superb.

This is a conversion of a shop in a quiet parade just outside the town centre, with the bar towards the back and some very comfortable upholstered and cushioned bench seating by the front window. The walls have art works on them, and the ceilings are adorned with pump clips. The pub is doing a good trade, according to a Radnorshire Camra official I spoke to in the Llanerch Inn, and it's clear to see why, with friendly service, comfortable surroundings and excellently kept ales.
