The Hay Festival kicks off, just 15 minutes from our door.  Do book early for the best events.  More from here.

Kitchen Garden Open Day at The Griffin.  Meet the gardeners, tour the garden and finish off with tea and cocktails.                 

Royal Welsh Agricultural Show in nearby Builth Wells.  The best attended of the UK's major shows.

Our Autumn Wine Supper with our old friends at Bat & Bottle.  Game matched up to the best of Northern Italian wine.  £60 a head.  Tickets from here.


A Bottle Shop

We don't find it easy to buy good wine in the area.  Fingal Rock Wines in Monmouth is an obvious exception and we like the look of newcomers to Hereford, Noble & Wild.
But with each of those two 45 minutes from us, we become a good option if you're looking to buy wine by the bottle or by the case.

We're happy to sell any of the wines on our list to take away at retail prices.  These are good wines, well made by exacting wine makers, often organic or biodynamic. 

Sunday Sleepover

Available all year round.  Kick back with us for Sunday lunch, the papers and maybe an afternoon walk.  Then supper, a good night's sleep and a great breakfast on Monday morning.

From just £225 for two people (principally when the clocks are on BST), and from £195 when the Winter Escape is in place. 

To check availability for any of our offers or to book a table, do drop us an email here.                     


Into Summer

The Spring Sleepover runs until 18 May.  Two or more night stays, including dinner, and available also at our sister inns in Cornwall, The Gurnard's Head and The Old Coastguard.  Just a little availability still remaining.

The Hay Festival (starts 25 May) can be a busy week at The Griffin.  If you'd like to join us for lunch or supper before or after attending an event, drop us an email here.

Summer Holiday

Although we won't denounce the attraction of beaches, landlocked mid Wales has much to attract the visitor in the summer.  We've rarely had more fun than when canoeing down the Wye towards Hay.

From £699 for 4 nights for two people including dinner and applies on nights that start with "Fri" and "Satur" as well as weekdays.   And children stay for free with parents in our larger room.

The Summer Holiday also runs at The Old Coastguard and The Gurnard's Head, although it seems you have to move quickly to find the dates you want down there....




Ever popular resolutions to difficult present problems, our vouchers can be with you within a couple of days.

For any amount, or for a particular offer, and usable at any EATDRINKSLEEP inn, they last at least 12 months and we’re happy to extend them if needed.
Email us at

We now even send them to you in a little pack that you can give to the lucky recipient.  An improvement on our previous Blue Peter efforts.

We donate 5% of voucher sales in each December to our chosen charities.  This year you've helped us raise nearly £1500 to share between Cornwall Hospice Care, National Coastwatch Institution and Cancer Research Wales.
