Restaurant has taste of success.

A WELSH restaurant with rooms has won a major award for the high quality of its wines and its helpful tasting notes.

The Felin Fach Griffin was named Best Pub List of the Year at the 2012 Imbibe Wine awards at Mayfair's Novikov in London.

This award follows a string of recent accolades including: 2012 AA Wine Award for Wales; Inn of the Year and County Dining Pub of the Year in the 2013 Edition of the Good Pub Guide; a Cesar from the 2013 Good Hotel Guide and Welsh Inn of the Year.

The seven-bedroom Felin Fach Griffin is owned by brothers Charles and Edmund Inkin through their company, Eatdrinksleep. It lies in a valley between the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons and is hosted by Julie Bell.

A spokesman for Imbibe Wine awards said: "The EatDrinkSleep team picked up the Pub List award last year for their Cornish hostelry, The Gurnard's Head and they've repeated the trick with their inn-with-rooms near the Brecon Beacons. The winning formula is simple: about 100 bins - 35 Old World whites, 35 Old World Reds, 10 New World Whites, 10 New World reds, 10 stickies, 10 fortifieds, and 16 wines available by the glass or carafe. Probably because The Felin Fach Griffin uses seven small merchants, its list is free from on-trade big names and the by-the-glass wines have short, helpful tasting notes."
