About Us

E&R-490x290Lasswade was established in 2001 by the owners Roger and Emma Stevens. They have built a fine reputation of their good food, clean and comfortable accommodation, with a good customer return.

Award Winning Welsh Restaurant – fine dining in the Brecon Beacons

Having always worked in catering for large hotels, Roger, who previously worked as a Head Chef at the Waldorf Hotel in London, took a sabbatical to lecture and sell cheese to the industry. He has a keen interest in motor sport, competing regularly in local motor rally competitions – of course this is when time allows!

You may even have seen or heard Roger in one of his frequent television or radio appearances as he’s a food judge, regularly appearing in live cooking demonstrations at Food Festivals taking place in Wales.

Emma, a farmer’s daughter from Hampshire, knows how important Farm to Plate is and she regularly interacts with the local community and school regarding this topic.

Here at Lasswade we’re passionate about doing our bit to help the environment – which led to us achieving the Considerate Hoteliers Sustain Food Challenge award and the Green Dragon Environmental award!
