When food is so good it's criminal
"What is in this?" I said as I shook the waiter. "Tell me. Tell me now. I need to know." After several shakes the terrified waiter ran off to the kitchen to get help.
Miss, we're going to have to ask you to leave."
Is it butter or what?"
Please leave."
Garlic?!" I called from the police car.

Okay that didn't happen, but this is the effect The Felin Fach Griffin's food would have on me if I had less restraint. This little B&B and restaurant with views of Brecon's mountains has a calm and friendly atmosphere. It is full of cottagey character with its beams, fireplace and Aga Room, and at times it feels as if you've stumbled in to someone's cosy living room.


In terms of food, all the ingredients used are fresh, local produce and grown organically in the restaurant's grounds. This is probably part of the reason why their courses are so flavorsome.

In the evening, you'll receive a complimentary amuse-bouche (usually a rich, creamy soup in a small cup) and home-made bread that's still warm. Quite frankly, this stuff is the highlight for me. My only criticism is that it doesn't come with a small spoon to scoop out the last drops at the bottom.

Lamb with Shallots & Pea Puree

The ingredients in the mains are combined perfectly, and I would recommend that non-veggies try their lamb. The portions can be quite small for some people, so you may want to order side dishes.

Vanilla Cake

I'm a dessert over starter person, but for me their desserts aren't as appealing as their savoury courses. That doesn't mean however that they don't taste great. A friend dubbed their passion fruit crumble 'the best looking, best tasting dessert I've ever had'. The friendly staff will also be happy to tell you about any lactose free options they have, such as a coconut milk panna cotta.

The Felin Fach Griffin offers a 'Sunday Sleepover' deal which includes lunch, bed, and breakfast from 170 per couple. A great place to stay while you're exploring the Brecon Beacons. Eat. Drink. Sleep. What more do you need in life?

Marianne, what a brilliant opening paragraph. Very 'amusing' (pun intended). Great article
