Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Our puppy absolutely loved the place!’ writes a reader, of this dining pub in a hamlet between the Brecon Beacons and the Black mountains. One of a trio owned by brothers Charles and Edmund Inkin (see Old Coastguard and Gurnard’s Head), it is also popular with pet owners, who describe it as ‘truly wonderful’ with a ‘happy-making atmosphere’. Shabby-chic style runs through the dining areas (the bar, tack room, library and Aga room), but each has its own atmosphere, perhaps a log fire. The welcome extends to locals after a drink, to children, cats and dogs, with resident hounds Max and Lottie usually up for some fun. Bedrooms vary in size but all have a comfortable bed, filter coffee, real milk, shortbread, magazines, flowers, no television (by design) but a Roberts radio, a bathroom with shower. The ‘really good’ food has a similarly deceptive simplicity, showcasing local ingredients in such dishes as lamb breast, white bean mash, salsa verde, sweetbreads; cod, creamed leeks, crab, cauliflower, Lilliput capers. Breakfast brings soda bread, fruit from the kitchen garden, a ‘full Borders’. (Sara Hollowell, Chris Savory)

Guest comments

'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
'The Felin Fach Griffin provided the most extraordinary haven in a storm - literally, for a family depressed by a week's exceptionally damp camping holiday. Wonderful rooms, fabulous food, comfortable and ridiculously welcoming. They dried our wet stuff in the boiler room, fed our four-year-old in the bar at 5.30pm, added fish and chips to the menu for the boys and relaid our table with candles and dessert for two after we'd put all offspring to bed. Breakfast at the communal table, with a dog by our toes and toast on the Aga sent us all off to continue our camping trip in an entirely cheerful frame of mind. ' - Sophie Harrowes - September, 2016
'A very charming pub-with-rooms. The pub area is really relaxed, with roaring fires, mismatched armchairs and magazines to read, and the dining rooms leading off it are slightly more formal but still have appealing shabby-chic decor. The food was amazing. Our room was small, with just room for a double bed, and a view of the road, but the bathroom was a decent size and nicely furnished, and with a lovely powerful shower. Overall, a wonderful place. The relaxed atmosphere belies the fact that the owners/management run a professional operation and care about the details – it makes for a great combination ' - CB - April, 2016
