Good Hotel Guide Review

‘A wonderful place’, the Inkin brothers’ dining pub-with-rooms combines a ‘relaxed, happy-making atmosphere’ with ‘decently sized, nicely furnished bedrooms’. In a hamlet between the Brecon Beacons and the Black mountains, the ‘charming spot’ – family-friendly and dog-friendly to boot – shares the carefree-yet-professional approach of sister ventures in Zennor and Mousehole (see entries). Mismatched armchairs sit by the fire in the pub (a gathering place for locals). In the ‘appealing, shabby-chic’ dining room, short daily menus of ‘amazing’ food draw on the best local ingredients, including vegetables and soft fruit from the kitchen garden. Typical among the ‘inventive, creatively presented’ dishes: mackerel fillet, harissa; Welsh beef sirloin, watercress, bone marrow. Some of the smart, country-style bedrooms may be snug, but all the key elements are there: filter coffee, leaf tea, fresh milk, shortbread; magazines and a Roberts radio; ‘a lovely shower’. After breakfast – the apple juice is local – strike out on a hike, or simply browse the bookshops in Hay-on-Wye, a 20-minute drive away. ‘I’d happily stay here again.’

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
