A superb family Sunday lunch here. Gets better each time we visit. Can't fault the wonderful food and service. The selection for Sunday lunch was varied and interesting but includes the traditional roasts. The portions and presentation are just right and not too pretentious. Everything...More

Great to hear that you had a good lunch with us on Sunday. I'd best discuss barman's pay rise with him on Monday morning.....

Visited with friends who live locally and on their recommendation. Very busy evening service mid week but fortunately we had reserved a table. Booking at weekends is apparently a must. A fairly limited menu but with meat, fish and a veggie option for each course....More

Thank you for taking the time to report back: I'm sorry that some things weren't right for you. I particularly apologise for the billing mistake: these things are never done on purpose and we have systems in place to minimise the risk of human error....More

Dear Ryan We don't impose any effective dress code on guests. Trousers probably best at this time of year, but no requirement for a coat or for a tie. We just hope you have a good supper with us. Please do call us if we... More

  • This restaurant is at The Felin Fach Griffin
The exterior of Brecon’s Felin Fach Griffin may be of ‘another country pub’ but step inside and it’s almost as if chintz and row upon row of horse brasses never happened. Boldly coloured walls and plush leather couches sit happily alongside scrubbed wooden tables and chairs and historic beams, but it’s the food that we’re here for…the very food that has critics raving and the awards piling up. Locally sourced ingredients, including a selection from the restaurant’s own kitchen garden, provide a centrepiece for glorious dishes full of imagination. Make the most of melt in the mouth mains and to die for desserts but remember to leave room for the spectacular selection of Welsh cheeses which really make the meal.The Felin Fach Griffin has won the Best Family Restaurant award for the United Kingdom in the 2008 Good Food Guide.
