Matt Griffiths

Head Chef Matt grew up in the Welsh Valleys, he worked as a chef for over 14 years in Cardiff.    Employed at prestigious hotels, he worked under a Michelin star chef and gained a huge amount of experience in the creation of menus.  He loves fine cookery, but also loves catering for large parties & working in a busy kitchen.  As Head chef of the Wallace Steak house and The Greyhound Inn, he now gets the best of both worlds with the busy day to day running of a 180-seater popular country pub as well as the more intimate restaurant here at The Wallace.

A place full of history to sit and enjoy amazing food

Alfred Russel Wallace is one of the most famous people to ever come out of Usk.  He was born in Usk on the 8th of January 1823 and died on the 7th of November 1913.  He was a British naturalist, explorer, geographer, anthropologist, biologist and illustrator.  So in other words he was the David Attenbourgh of his day.  Alfred is best known for conceiving the theory of evolution, however his great friend Darwin then quickly wrote an abstract of his own book the “big species book” and published the “On the Origin of Species” in 1859 and therefore took the credit.  However... they both died great friends!
