New management for 2017. Had traditional roast dinner which was superb. Excellent prompt service and very cheerful helpful staff. Log fires in both rooms too. Very busy today but we still were seated before our booking time. Couldn't have asked for more

Please note the Griffin Inn was closed in July 2016 and reopened under new management in November 2016! This current page is no longer managed by the new landlord! A new page is currently being set up to allow honest feedback!

We had been for a walk round the fascinating village of Yoxford looking at all it's unique buildings and came across the Griffin that had a huge sign up saying hot drinks served and a log fire! With the temperature hardly above 0 it was just the invitation we were looking for! We only had a cup of tea and...

Very disappointed with our meal, my wife had a Lasagne and salad but refused the chips. The Lasagne was hugh as was the salad. The Lasagne was recommended by the chef. It was luke warm and very dry, no betbchamin sauce. Had to be reheated but the wife was unable to eat it all. Not lasagne as I know it....

When I booked I was warned the chef had been unwell; when we arrived, we were told with many apologies the chef was still unwell but there was a stand-in providing a limited menu. The menu choices were standard pub fare but all six of us enjoyed well presented, carefully cooked food. The lad who greeted us at the bar,...

I visited the griffin last night for the first time and it was lovely. The barman wasn't very helpful he just looked like he was lost! But the young waitress took over and she was very helpful. She gave us the menu and then told us the specials she even recommend the fish and chips. So I had the fish...

We were welcomed warmly on 12th April by an enthusiastic host and hostess who provided a delicious lunch. We had not booked, we were fairly wet and muddy, but nothing was too much trouble. We would,be happy to return any time!

My wife and I stayed for one night, after having to leave a truly awful B&B. What a change. Had a super friendly reception and a Magnificat Lamb Shank. The desert, mango based, was better than anything we have ever had, even India. The breakfast was absolutely great. It is a lovely country pub. When we return to Sutton Hoo...

Popped in here with my son during a cycling trip in Suffolk. I had a pint of Woodfordes Wherry which was delightful and my son had a large hot chocolate. The pub has a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, the staff are friendly and helpful and the beer is good. What is there to dislike. When in the area again I...

I visited the lovely village of Yoxford over the Easter weekend. We stayed in the griffin inn which was absolutely wonderful! The pub is 600 years old and full of history, it is beautiful with loads of character due to it's original features such as the beams, doorways and flooring. The room was so cosy, and had great little touches...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Griffin Inn, Freehouse and Restaurant is a traditional 14th century country pub offering fresh, locally sourced, homecooked food and a selection of local Real Ales and beers. We have regular live music with monthly Folk nights and a seasonally changing British menu. We also host a popular monthly Curry Club sampling delicacies from the Indian subcontinent. We are located in the heart of the village of Yoxford, easily accessed by the A12 and close to the Heritage Coast, Minsmere RSPB Reserve, Aldeburgh and Southwold, in an area known as the Garden of Suffolk. We understand the importance of excellent customer service so you will hopefully feel that youre in a home away from home whilst staying with us and enjoying our carefully selected ales, food and maybe darts or Pool by the open fire. Guests and customers can enjoy fast wifi and the open fire in our traditional country bar and the quirks of this unique historical building are available to see in both the restaurant and the bright, airy bedrooms. We are also proud to welcome Dogs with well behaved owners both in our accommodation and in our country bar. Guests can also enjoy the complimentary hot chocolate, biscuits and a locally sourced full english breakfast, served in our dedicated restaurant. We also cater and host events such as Birthdays, meetings and Christenings in our Restaurant and in our large rear beer garden. ... more   less
