Max Wilson takes over as head chef at Felin Fach Griffin

Max Wilson has been appointed head chef at the Felin Fach Griffin pub-with-rooms near Brecon.

Wilson joins from his position at the two AA rosette New Yard restaurant on the Trelowarren estate near Falmouth. He was previously head chef at the St Martins hotel in the Scillies and before that worked in senior roles at Seaham Hall near Durham and Hartwell House near Aylesbury.

The seven-bedroom Griffin has the only Michelin Bib Gourmand in Wales and has been included without break in the Good Food Guide, Hardens and the Good Hotel Guide for more than a decade. Among its many accolades, it is five-times winner of the Good Food Guide‘s Dining Pub of the Year in Wales.

It is the first time, since 2003, that a head chef appointment has been made from outside the Griffin. Previous incumbents Ross Bruce and Simon Potter rose through the ranks.

The Griffin is owned by brothers Charles and Edward Inkin through their company Eatdrinksleep. They also own two properties in Cornwall: the Gurnard's Head near St Ives and the Old Coastguard in Mousehole.
