What can I say? The Griffin has a great reputation but.. . . Let me start with the best: the dessert of chocolate praline with ice cream raspberries and white chocolate was worthy of a 3 star restaurant. Both starters - pork with apple and black pudding, and potted salmon were good, the 1st maybe better than good and very inventive.
No, the problem was with the main course. I have been eating Welsh lamb since I was a child. It is my favorite meal. I tell you this so that you know that I know what it should taste like.
The problem appeared to be overcooking. It was so tasteless that I couldn't be certain what meat it was. It was sliced thin and was tough and stringy. Maybe it was the oldest lamb in Brecon but more likely the cook had an off day. It was so bad I was embarrassed, thinking of the number of times I have told Frenchmen that Welsh lamb is the best meat in the world.
I seriously suggest that he goes down to the village and asks any Welsh housewife how to cook leg of lamb, or any other cut for that matter.
BTW nobody asked my opinion.
