Llanfair Fish Bar is Located in Llanfair Caereinion in Montgomeryshire.
Llanfair Caereinion is in the heart of old Montgomeryshire’s Banwy valley and is one of the smallest towns in Powys. The quaint and sleepy exterior of the town give it a picture book feel that typifies the traditional Welsh countryside.
The Welshpool to Llanfair Light Railway operates from the eastern edge of town, a short walk over the Banwy Bridge from the hilly streets of the centre.
The church of St Mary stands at the heart of Llanfair Caereinion and despite being built in 1868 still retains 15th century roof timbers, a fine south doorway and baptismal font from the early 13th century.
The church in nearby Llanllugan is also of particular interest, dating back to the 6th century and retaining a 15th century stained glass window of true beauty.
The Arboretum on the banks of the Banwy contains over 25 different species of British trees and is an idyllic place to wander around and enjoy the sound of the river rushing past.
Every year the Llanfair Caereinion Carnival proceeds through the town with a full parade of floats and dancing troupes, much to the pride of the locals. Likewise, the Llanfair Show is a cherished occasion, the one-day show aims to encompass all that is best in the Montgomeryshire countryside.
Llanfair Fish Bar is situated in a prominent, elevated position at the top of the town in a beautiful detached period building and is presented and maintained to a high standard. The business is well signed and there is free on street parking nearby.Premises
