We decided to return here after a few years of not doing. Our absence was mainly due to the price of drinks last time. We visited about 4pm on Easter Monday.The menu was varied and very appealing. I decided on the Chicken Chasseur, which came with mashed potatoes and vegetables. The presentation was beautiful. I was expecting chunks of chicken... More

Called in by chance last Sunday and although the restraunt was fully booked we managed to get a table for 5 in the bar area. Roast beef was lovely but my wife was a little disappointed in the bean burger. Table service was good and staff very friendly. A limited choice of cask ale

Fantastic atmosphere, excellent service and food was delicious and served piping hot. We sat in the conservatory for a 60th birthday celebration plenty of room for everyone to sit comfortably. Staff attention to our needs was fabulous nothing was too much trouble.

Visited last night and had a really excellent meal. We had the special offer menu with wine and each course was well cooked and presented well. The staff were lovely even though they were very busy with a large birthday celebration.

Having previously reviewed The Griffin Inn as 'Faultless', it's very disappointing to revisit and have it found wanting. A party of 7 visited the evening of 28/1/17 for a birthday meal. Six adults and the birthday boy celebrating his 13th. He was desperate to have the enchiladas again as he'd loved them on the last visit. Duty Manager wasn't having... More
