It's great to say we are back open again!

...albeit with a few new guidelines...

To keep things simple, it’s pretty much as it was before, but it’s now the ‘rule of 4’, instead of ‘the rule of 6’. The positive news is that up to 4 people can meet from different households and this doesn’t include children under 11. So, two couples can meet, along with their under 11-year-old children. Also, if you live in a single household you are be able to have a table larger than 4, so long as you all live under the same roof in Wales. The same guidelines apply for outside too.

It has also now been confirmed that, for tables up to 4 (excluding children under 11), the person who makes a booking will need to show some form of verification of their name. For example, a driver’s licence, bank or credit card. For bookings over 4 (excluding children under 11), all adults will need to show that they live under the same roof. So please bring along something official with your name and address on, such as a driving licence or utility bill.

Tables of up to 4 can be booked online here. For tables over 4, please call us on 01745 775 090.

Just as a reminder, when you visit us, please wear your masks when not seated at your table.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Welcome to the website for the Dinorben Arms

The Dinorben Arms sits in the heart of the small village of Bodfari, nestled in the shadows of St Stephen's church. The building is steeped in history and loved by many who remember her of old; 1970's dinner dates in the beamed snug at the front of the building which greets you as you enter via the front doors or childhood memories of peering into the old well which now sits in front of our bar. A tall tower has been added to the rear of the building with a spacious terrace, to take in the glorious views across the stunning hills beyond. We hope you will find her a seamless mix between old and new.


Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. We upload them to our web site each day before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
