We always knew they were great places but it’s great to see four Lahloo Tea stockists receiving nationally recognised awards for their fabulous food, drinks and hospitality. Congratulations! You deserve it!
Stephen Terry picks up the AA Restaurant of the Year Wales Award for his Abergavenny restaurant, The Hardwick.
Known for its mighty reputation as an outstanding place to eat and drink, Terry’s restaurant was expanded in time for this year’s Abergavenny Food Festival to offer visitors an astounding place to stay.
The Hardwick is a gastronomic hideaway in the heart of Wales’ lush, verdant hills . I love driving over the Severn for a Sunday walk followed by a cracking roast. And now they have 8 contemporary bedrooms, combining elegant, understated design with Welsh charm. The ultimate autumn gourmet getaway.

The Inkin brothers’ EatDrinkSleep scoop not one but two Good Pub Guide Awards 2011 for Dining Pub of the Year Wales and Cornwall
The Felin Fach Griffin, a dining pub with rooms, nestles between The Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons, near Hay-on-Wye. Charles Inkin likes to think that everyone’s time here is as relaxing as staying in someone’s home. The ethos behind EatDrinkSleep is the simple things in life done well. And things are done very well here – I can vouch for that!

The Felin Fach Griffin’s sister, The Gurnards Head, is in the most beautiful part of Cornwall perching on the cliffs high above the Atlantic between St. Ives and St. Just, near the Minack Theatre, Zennor, Penzance and Newlyn.With the same ethos as The Felin Fach Griffin, this is another very special place.
You will truly unwind you as you enjoy one of the country’s most dramatic coastlines. And the salty air is proven (I can vouch for that) to make you sleep deeply in the most comfortable beds. Eat simple, earthy and delicious food.
