The Felin Fach Griffin

Nestled near the Hay-on-Wye, close to the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons,you will find the Felin Fach Griffin, a gastropub with rooms and a bar to quench your thirst.

The Felin Fach gastropub is a warm and inviting one, willing to give you a big cuddle and send you on your way or to bed with a full tummy at the end of a long day walking.

Food at the pub is simple, but well cooked and moreish. A selection of fine wines, beers and spirits have also been carefully curated to partner with your food or to be enjoyed on their own.

Though this Welsh pub’s food is simple, it is refined and makes use of the produce and ingredients surrounding it.

The pub has been adorned with accolades and references from the likes of The Good Pub Guide, Sawdays, The Good Hotel Guide 2018 and the Good Food Guide.

One of the gastropub’s unique offers is the Sunday sleepover, allowing guests to eat Sunday lunch at the pub, kick back with the papers, have supper, followed by a good night’s sleep and then breakfast on Monday morning – all for between £200 and 227.50 for two people.

Diners looking to eat dinner can expect to find Medjool dates with labneh and preserved lemons; mackerel fillet, harissa, carrot and fennell and rabbit loin, curried leg, pickled cauliflower and sultanas for starters.

Mains include the likes of Glamorgan sausage with celeriac, apple, pieds de mouton and walnuts; duck breast with chicory, duck fat mash, orange and anise; and sirloin of Welsh beef with oxtail, watercress and bone marrow.

There are several dishes for each course without meat and the pub says it openly caters for all dietary needs.

Desserts could include: dark chocolate mousse with pecans and caramel; chocolate pave with kirsch cherries and pistachio; and Tunworth with buttermilk crackers and fig confit.

Set menus for lunch and supper are also available and are priced reasonably.
