We were really disappointed that the restaurant menu was nothing like the restaurant menu on their website. We ended up ordering off the bar menu and the food was excellent. Couldn't fault it. They need to update their website though as we nearly walked out after seeing the menu. Something that we did see another couple do while we were... More

We haven't been to The Griffin in a long time but wanted to find somewhere that served a decent Sunday lunch. We were not disappointed. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. Each dish on all three courses was well presented. The main roast dinner was extremely well prepared and cooked with a good range of vegetables and the meat... More

After having pleasant eating experiences at this restaurant many times before when owned by the previous owners, we decided to try it with the new ones. Highly disappointed. Served a plate of black chips that were not cooked and not edible. The chef stated they had come from a bad batch but still served. A very quiet night but little... More

We visited The Griffin with friends for the Tapas Night and had a fantastic evening. The food was excellent and very tasty with lots of choices of dishes, (the puddings are a ""must"!). The staff were very attentive and friendly, providing a great customer service. And the entertainment was an added bonus, with the group Acoustic Experiment playing a wide... More
