If you are anywhere near Brecon you simply must call into the Griffin at Felin Fach.

Superb locally produced and seasonal food produced by head chef Simon Potter, great beers and wines and of course Hermitage cognacs. What more could you wish for? Ask Julie for a table at firstname.lastname@example.org. You won’t regret it!
Charles Inkin will tell you that like so many things, food is best kept simple. The fresh and seasonal menu changes according to what comes into the back door and in a place like St Ives there is some pretty interesting food coming into the back door. What is really nice though is that they have a great range of drinks priced at local rates, “we don’t charge London rates here” and the brandies are in sensible 35cl measures. The nice thing is you can even stay in one of their lovely rooms.
