“An old inn, close to the main road in stunning walking terrain, that gained a new lease of life as a gastropub, and remains a fine example of its type. Squashy leather sofas round the fireplace in the bar/lounge; stylish food at pine tables in the barn dining room; good linens, pillows and towels in the simple country-style bedrooms. Informal and laid back combined with high standards.”

Written by  Fiona Duncan

They say

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
The atmosphere here is more of a pub than a hotel. An open fire, squashy sofas and a buzz of activity. At its best perhaps in Autumn and in the colder months, when the flavours of the Welsh larder really come into their own. Guests will stay here to visit the book town of Hay-on-Wye or to make the most of the walking country of The Black Mountains and The Brecon Beacons. It really is ideal for those wanting to explore the area and get their walking boots on, and then return to tip top food and more than decent wine.

What is there to do in the area?
Many come to walk in the area with the Brecon Beacons to one side and the Black Mountains on the other. With the Rivers Usk and Wye within ten minutes, we are also near some of the best Trout and Salmon fishing in Britain. If river conditions allow, we’d recommend hiring a canoe and following the Wye to Hay and beyond. Hay itself is known worldwide for its books and bookshops: you can easily spend a day pottering around in its quirky shops and cafes.

What kind of breakfast do you offer?
Breakfast is served in the library, our main dining room. A cooked Breakfast tends to be the most popular, although we sometimes see a rush on smoked salmon with scrambled eggs or kippers. Breads are generally made in our kitchen, as our jams and marmalade and our Muesli.

Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally?
The Griffin has been named the Good Pub Guide’s Dining Pub of the Year in Wales for three years running. We serve lunch from 12-2.30 and supper 6-9.30 every day of the year except Christmas Day and for four days in January. Menus change daily and seasonally, reflecting the wonderful supply of ingredients that we enjoy in this part of the world. If you don’t eat with us, there are a handful of outstanding restaurants on the way to us from Abergavenny or we’d recommend the cafes at Booth’s Bookshop in Hay or the Talgarth Mill.

Which are your most popular room types, and why?
Room 3 would be one of the most popular due to the space and the possibility of turning the sofa into a bed for children or a third guest. Room 1 & 5 are also very regularly requested, both with beautiful hand carved four-poster beds.”
