Last night, for my birthday, my lovely husband took me to the Felin Fach Griffin, in Brecon. This place is highly rated by a few of my friends, and it was about time we tried it out.
It was amazing. We picked a beautiful, clear day to drive the hour trip to Brecon, and boy was it worth it. We arrived an hour early, so had a drink outside, & explored the kitchen garden. They organically grow a lot of the vegetables and fruit that is then cooked up in the kitchen, so we were oh so very happy to enjoy the peas, garlic and tomatoes that travelled only a few steps from the garden to the kitchen. We ate clams for starter, cooked in a butter and parsley sauce, with home baked bread, and accompanied by a complimentary birthday champagne. Then the most beautiful Welsh lamb with crushed peas and garlic potato mash, and creme brulee. Fantastic food, in a really relaxed rustic surrounding, followed by another exploration of the garden, where we met a super sweet little shy black and white cat. Spot him in the photos, amongst the broad beans and nasturtiums!
They have regular planting days, with bbq in the garden. Details of one on 22 September is here:
And they have a blog, where they get excited about the first pea harvest, just like me!
