The Griffin Inn at Felin Fach is celebrating after having been named Inn of the Year at the Good Pub Guide 2013.
The pub, which is part of a small chain of only three venues, offers down to earth cooking and a homely , old-world atmosphere, with a menu including vegetables from the pub’s own garden and eggs laid by its resident chickens.
Fiona Stapely, the editor of the Good Pub Guide described the inn as an “unpretentious proper pubby back bar.”
“They’re sort of like shabby chic in that they use really bold paintwork and nice comfy old chairs – not brand new black upright leather-backed chairs, which you see everywhere. Everything is individual and carefully chosen,” she said.
The Griffin Inn was one of 16 national award winners in the guide, which features 4,700 pubs.
Edmund Inkin, one of the brothers who own the pub and its sister venues, was delighted at the prestigious award:
“Recognition like this from The Good Pub Guide is the Holy Grail for those of us who are trying to remain rooted in our local community, balancing well executed food with comfortable rooms and great but sensibly priced beer and wine.”
