The Griffin Inn has around since the 1700s so it's full of funny angles, sloping floors, small rooms (it has eight guest rooms above the pub/restaurant... More

Chef Maria made these for me for breakfast when my tummy wasn't feeling so good ... they were great for the palate and my recovery. I went back for lunch and had delicious fish & chips too. GREAT SERVICE Very friendly... More

Our party included a pescitarian and two people seeking more veggies along with several omnivores. All were satisfied by the varied menu. Fish & chips, burgers, pork sandwiches, ratatouille, and soup and salad were consumed and enjoyed. Service was zippy and cordial.

Cozy inn in great location of the town. Serves nice breakfast. Really good spot to stay if you are visiting the town on foot. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We had no issues with the noise or anything during our stay.

Excellent pub with rooms with such a great atmosphere right in the centre of lovely Bath. The staff were all so friendly and could not do enough for you. The breakfast was freshly cooked and you ate this in a lovely relaxed quiet atmosphere. Feel that this is such a find right in the heart of Bath and would definitely... More

we love the Griffin ,but room 7 is unacceptably noisy . All night long traffic going past really difficult to sleep . Also , I was disappointed the price has gone up under the new ownership , the staff are great and everything else pretty much perfect esp the breakfasts

I stayed for a week at the Griffin. Before I arrived the staff were excellent in giving me information I needed including being able to leave my powerchair in the bar area. The staff offered to help me into the pub with the powerchair. My single room was a good size with a proper large wardrobe and drawers so I... More
