All in Middleton Street: Food from Van's Good Food Shop, a deli/health food shop. Household goods from old-fashioned hardware store Bradley's. Gifts from Caer Sidi and Porticus. Plants from Jack In The Green.
There are three chippies, two kebab shop takeaways and two Chinese takeaways. There's also an Indian restaurant, tea rooms, a greasy food cafe and two jacket potato/sandwich/healthier food option cafes.
Jules Wine Bar. Opposite the Automobile Museum you'll find this recently renovated cosmopolitan watering hole. Tends to cater to middle-aged professionals though it's a safe, decent place so anyone should feel welcome. Also serves food.edit
Metropole. The town's premier hotel's bar is the most interesting of all the hotel's public bars. Offering views of the town garden and cars and people making their way around town, the bar has very posh staff (Foreign. and quite often rude) and although expensive, opportunities to meet a diverse range of tourists or people visiting a conference make this the most refreshing place to drink in Llandrindod.edit
The Log Cabin. Fairly reasonable prices at this pub. It's the most popular pub in town but can be rough and ready at peak times.edit
Llanerch Inn. A quaint old world pub situated behind the police station. The interior is full of character and oozes traditional charm but expect expensive prices.edit
Rumours. The town's only nightclub is adjacent to the Log Cabin pub down an alley. It looks like a rickety shack from the outside but is astonishingly modern, clean and funky internally. Friday nights are lively throughout the year but only venture there on Saturday nights in the summer or expect a boring evening. Rejoice at the cheap drink prices - the cheapest in town and much more affordable than the pubs and hotel bars.edit
