Nick Brodie has been appointed head chef at The Felin Fach Griffin, part of the family-owned group of inns, EatDrinkSleep.
Brodie joins from his role as head chef at Llangoed Hall, where he has been at the helm of the hotel’s 3 AA Rosette restaurant since 2013.
He also boasts experience at the likes of The Queensberry in Bath and The Bath Priory and starts his new role at The Felin Fach Griffin this week.
The Felin Fach Griffin was the first of the EatDrinkSleep inns and has been run by brothers Charles and Edmund Inkin since 2000.
It comprises seven bedrooms and a dining room and is situated between Brecon and Hay-on-Wye.
The other properties in the EatDrinkSleep portfolio consist of The Gurnard’s Head in Zennor and The Old Coastguard in Mousehole which is currently closed following a fire this summer.
Commenting on Brodie’s appointment, Edmund Inkin says: “We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Nick to take over this totemic role in our little enterprise. His experience is broad and his skillset and knowledge are as good as it gets in this industry. We feel he is just the right person to cook food which hits the mark in what is, after all, just a little pub in the middle of the Welsh mountains.”
Nick Brodie adds: “I’m absolutely thrilled to have the chance to work at one of the original pubs that do great food. It’s a different environment to the one I’ve operated in for the last 6 years, but I just love that challenge of bringing all my experience together to cook good simple food with great ingredients. I can’t wait to get into the kitchen.”
