The Felin Fach Griffin near Brecon has been voted no 18 in the top 50 pubs in the UK at the annual Top 50 Gastropub awards, making it a must do stop for something to eat on your UK short break in Wales.

Pubs are voted for by 500 pub food experts including pub owners, chefs, restaurant critics and food writers.

Julie Bell, hostess at the Griffin said: “To be voted by the industry into the top 20 pubs in which to buy food in the whole of the UK is a real boon for our team. They should be very proud of themselves, particularly as it is about the sixth year in a row that they’ve made this list.”

Co-owner Edmund Inkin said: “To have The Griffin’s sister inn, The Gurnard’s Head in Cornwall, only just outside the Top 10 at Number 11 is also good news for this part of the world.

“We very much consider Brecon our hub and success in Cornwall helps secure the employment to run our back office up here in Wales as well as being a brilliant way of advertising this part of the world.”

The Felin Fach Griffin is a dining pub with rooms nestling near the book town of Hay-on-Wye between The Black Mountains and The Brecon Beacons, not far from the market towns of Abergavenny and Crickhowell, a popular choice for those wanting to take a UK short break.

Sleep in the most comfortable beds, eat simple, but well executed and delicious food. Beers, wine, sherries and fruit juices: all chosen because we love them. We support our local community, source our produce with sustainability in mind, and set our prices for our regular customers, not the incoming tourists.

We have always loved this part of Wales and over the past ten years we have come to love this building. We hope you will too.
