We visited here on a cvoucher deal and weren't disappointed. The Griffin is a bit of a Glasgow institution and there is a great buzz about the place.

We were quickly attended to. The roast pepper soup came quickly, was piping hot and very tasty. My pulled ham with black pudding was a wee bit... More
