The Felin Fach Griffin is celebrating retaining the title of Dining Pub of the Year for Wales in the 36th edition of the Good Pub Guide which was published September 7th.

The Griffin, hosted by Julie Bell, is a seven-bedroomed inn in the village of Felin Fach at the foot of the Brecon Beacons, owned since 2000 by brothers Charles and Edmund Inkin through their company EATDRINKSLEEP.

It has a thriving restaurant and bar that is a base for the community, supporting local producers, brewers and growers, as well as having its own kitchen garden. The pub follows the brothers’ belief in “the simple things done well”, a philosophy which was developed during their dairy farming childhood in neighbouring Monmouthshire.

The Inkin brothers also own The Gurnard’s Head, near St Ives and The Old Coastguard, an iconic seaside hotel in nearby Mousehole. Both have recently been awarded gold awards in the annual Taste of the West hospitality awards and both achieve bedroom occupancy levels of nearly 95% year-round. The group now employs more than 120 people in Wales and in Cornwall.

The 2017 Good Pub Guide said of The Felin Fach Griffin:

“Highly thought-of dining pub with excellent food, a fine range of drinks and upbeat rustic décor; inviting bedrooms.”

Edmund Inkin said:

“I’m so happy for Julie and her team that they have retained this award as Wales’ leading dining pub. To make guests happy consistently year after year is not easy and it doesn’t happen without an enormous amount of thought and hard work from everyone.”

The 2018 Good Pub Guide is published by Ebury Press and is an independent guide featuring more than 5,000 pubs. Entry is by selection only and is based on reviews by 2,000 of the guide’s readership.
