Inns in Brecon
Welcome to a Welsh country inn entirely devoid of horsebrasses, Welsh love spoons and any sign of chintz.
It is owned and run by brothers Charles and Edmund Inkin, who have carried their uncompromising belief in "the simple things in life done well" to a quiet Welsh valley in the shadow of the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons.
Eatdrinksleep is the name of the company set up to create the new pub and all three of these basic needs are treated with serious and personal attention to detail. All the rooms are individually designed to be the very antithesis of large, impersonal hotels. The owners, although originally from Wales, have lived and worked in London and sensibly included some of the features that you might enjoy in a good city hotel: designer toiletries in the bathrooms, piles of plumbed up pillows and luxuriously soft white linen bedding on a handsomely-carved four posted bed, as well as indisputably top-quality food. But the heart of the Felin Fach Griffin is pure country; A large farmhouse table strewn with the day's papers is circled by deep leather sofas and an open fire which is lit for most of the year. You can choose to eat either in the deep red dining room area, decorated with quirky portraits on the walls and eclectic pieces of Balinese furniture, or in the bar area, painted yello!
w and blue in defiance of the sometimes unpredictable Welsh weather. Chef Ross Bruce's food is simple but utterly delicious with a focus on the very best of local ingredients. It is served by fresh faced and always friendly local staff and made even more enjoyable by plenty of traditional ales and an excellent choice of old and new world wines, with several available by the glass. It is not unheard of for diners to enjoy their meal so much that instead of paying the bill and leaving they choose to settle back and order another bottle of wine having secured themselves a bed upstairs for the night.
