Description: The exterior of Brecon’s Felin Fach Griffin may be of ‘another country pub’ but step inside and it’s almost as if chintz and row upon row of horse brasses never happened. Boldly coloured walls and plush leather couches sit happily alongside scrubbed wooden tables and chairs and historic beams, but it’s the food that we’re here for…the very food that has critics raving and the awards piling up. Locally sourced ingredients, including a selection from the restaurant’s own kitchen garden, provide a centrepiece for glorious dishes full of imagination. Make the most of melt in the mouth mains and to die for desserts but remember to leave room for the spectacular selection of Welsh cheeses which really make the meal.

The Felin Fach Griffin has won the Best Family Restaurant award for the United Kingdom in the 2008 Good Food Guide.

“High quality food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We arrived for lunch without a reservation, but they nonetheless were able to fit us in within 10-15 minutes and gave us a menu so we could order before being taken to our table. We recommend the three-course set menu for £21. The portions were just right so that we were full up, but not bloated by the end of the meal. The service was prompt and attentive and the dining area nicely laid out.

“Great food, lovely place”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Went for lunch for my other half's birthday and had a great time. Was a Monday lunchtime so expectedly quiet but staff were still attentive and friendly. A lovely venue inside and out. Food was great, my vegan partner got her own full menu to choose from which is fantastic. Nice bread and appetiser on the table, for me a great starter of pork terrine and the lamb belly for main was delicious if a little rich, perhaps a touch of mint sauce or something sharp to balance but still lovely. Good creme brulee to finish. We had a fantastic three course meal for two for £60 but we certainly didn't choose cheap options and the food was worth it. Definitely worth the trip from Abergavenny and will visit again.

“Great little pub”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

A very busy little pub and a great place to break a journey for lunch. Reservations are required if you want a table inside. The menu is not the usual pub food but is reasonably priced, well cooked and presented. We loved it.

“A great night out”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

A great experience right from the start. When booking our table, I was asked if my group had any special dietary requirements - I was asked in an informative and positive way, not a forced strap line - Brilliant. Drinks reception in those large sofas, and a really well served meal, cooked to perfection. A great experience, which was expensive, but Julie Bell and the brilliantly trained team deserve every penny.
A lovely experience, to be repeated.
