We've been fans of The Griffin for over 30 years - but having now moved hundreds of miles away, rarely have the opportunity to visit - but we were delighted to discover that nothing has changed! Still wonderfully relaxed and welcoming with top class cooking and informal, but excellent service. It's a combination that makes for a really enjoyable visit...

I was lucky enough to be one of five us who had luncheon here last Friday. We had been before five years ago ( We live a considerable distance away...in Shropshire)..and eaten in the dining room, and I always wanted to return. I was not disappointed. We had reserved a table in the bar which was a round table set...

Last time I ate there, James the boss, told me he had a bad review on tripadvisor. Cannot understand. I've been eating there since 1997 when we moved to Nutley and used to go probably on average, once a month. Once I relocated due to work, in 2002 I've only been able to get there sporadically but anytime I was...

Return visit after quite a break. Only wanted a light lunch. We had scallops starter which was excellent with a delicate fishy mushroom sauce. Went very well with the scallops. I had mussels with skinny chips. Mussels were juicy and plump and perfectly cooked with a lovely creamy white wine accompaniment. Prices just about right. A good lunch.

We met with friends for a post Christmas lunch. It was quite a drive for us but was a lovely find. The space in the bar was very tight between tables. unfortunately a lady wanted to stand right behind my chair whilst talking to someone and I could hardly move. That aside the food and drinks were lovely. My prawn...

We decided to spend a couple of days away from home to celebrate 40 years of married life and having eaten at the Griffin a few times, booked into one of their rooms for two nights. We ate there both evenings - restaurant the first and bar meal the second as it was a Sunday. In fact the bar meal...

We had lunch here and considering it was a Monday they were very busy which was a good sign. Could not fault either the food or the service, all staff that we met were very friendly and helpful . I have mobility issues but it was not a problem here as I was well looked after. The only downside for...

On arrival we were met by a very helpful girl who showed us to our room. We were in the Bluebell room which was small but perfect for our needs. The room had al the expected amenities, TV, tea, coffee & biscuits and even had a Four Poster bed. The bathroom was well appointed with a roll top bath. Very...

This was our first visit to The Griffin for several years, but we have had similar dinners here for 10-12 diners in the past (because we are local) - and were returning because of previous good experiences. We were put on a table round the corner which was nice and private. There the benefit stopped! It took an age to...

The Griffin Inn is probably a prime example of the "gourmet" pub. Nestled in the East Sussex countryside with pleasant views, it's a perfect location for a first-class pub meal. A licensed hotel for more than 500 years, the pub is now renowned more for its food than the excellent beer on tap. The menu is varied: we had the...
