Felin Fach Griffin retains Dining Pub of the Year Award in Wales

Felin Fach Griffin


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.

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 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.


The Harp at Old Radnor was a runner up in the Top Ten county pubs category and the Nags Head in Usk received runner up recognition for its warm hospitality received by its licensees.
