Good Hotel Guide Review

Brothers Charles and Edmund Inkin keep a welcome in the vales at their relaxed, brick-red dining pub-with-rooms, amid sheep-grazed pastures just outside the Brecon Beacons national park. The style – as at sister properties The Gurnard’s Head, Zennor, and The Old Coastguard, Mousehole (see entries) – is one of casual chic, with blazing fires, squashy sofas, mismatched chairs and tables. You won’t find a TV in your bedrooms, but you will find Welsh blankets, a Roberts radio, cut flowers, home-made biscuits, fresh milk, local artwork and botanical toiletries. In clement weather you can eat outside on perhaps garden vegetable risotto or a seafood grill; later, have supper in the Library or Aga Room or, if your dog is with you, in the bar or Tack Room (dogs stay at the pub free of charge). A short, nightly-changing menu of vegetables from the kitchen garden, fish from Cornwall, local meat and game includes dishes such as halibut, broad bean, pine nut and hazelnut fricassée; farro risotto, or duck breast, sweet potato, beetroot. Shooting and salmon and trout fishing can be organised, and you can play golf at Llandrindod Wells, Cradoc or Kington.

Comments about The Felin Fach Griffin

The Griffin is a truly wonderful place. I echo all past comments you have received. This is a very worthy partner to the Gurnard's Head in Cornwall which is well known to us. Highly recommended and our puppy absolutely loved the place! - Chris Savory - October 2017
