This is The Felin Fach Griffin, 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.

We think many of us want to return, if only momentarily, to a slower pace of life.  Everything our team do here is designed to achieve that aim for you. 

Time spent in this part of the world will unwind you. Relaxation within the building contrasts with the magnificence of the country that surrounds it.

You will sleep in the most comfortable beds, you will 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 twelve years we have come to love this building. We hope you will too.

We are open all year: please do come and visit us and bring along your friends, dogs or children.



The Felin Fach Griffin

  • A warm building that pulls you in, envelops you in a big cuddle and sends you to bed with a smile on you face.
  • Food that you look forward to eating. Surprisingly refined but doing justice to the Welsh larder.
  • Stay in one of Britain's most beautiful landscapes, with mountains, rivers and lowland hills on every side.



  • The Griffin's sister inns sit astride one of Britain's most beautiful coastal landscapes near St. Ives and Penzance.
  • Both are, in their way, brilliant spots for an escape from humdrum life, places made for restoring the soul and satisfying the appetite.
  • Visit the websites of The Gurnard's Head and The Old Coastguard (closed until early 2020 after a fire) for a sense of what a slower Britain was once like.
