My family visit Bath regularly for shopping and/or rugby and The Griffin is ideal for a casual pint and light lunch, away from the crowded 'chain' pubs which tend to dominate the city centre. Pop in before a match to sample one of the daily specials or fresh sandwich with a bowl of chips. Décor and furnishings not plush but... More

The Griffin is opposite our office so we are regularly popping in for a lunchtime drink or bite to eat. The staff are all lovely, the food is great and from what I have heard the B&B is great value for money.

We found this Inn a lovely change from the usual corporate hotels. It was in the centre but on the outskirts. The room was fine but my only complaint would be that the double we requested was clearly 2 singles stuck together which was not comfortable when you slid into the centre, we may as well been in singles! We... More

Spent two nights at the Griffin whilst Viking the Bath Christmas Market. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, with good,if small, ensuite facilities. Love old Inn with lots of character. Breakfast was excellent.

Popped by for just a couple of drinks before we headed to an attraction around the corner from here. It is a nice cosy bar, with friendly staff and plenty of seating. We only popped by for a glass of red (seemed to have a decent wine list) and only disappointed couldn't stay longer to sample their selection of vodka... More

This is a well locate pub with rooms above, staff, breakfast, decor etc all very nice however not entirely comfortable with a slightly lumpy mattress and the thin walls. Good value for money but some limitations and Wifi problematic.

stayed here on a weekend trip to the Theatre Royal (less than 5 minutes away). Ideal place to stay, just far enough from the centre not to disturbed by late night noise, but close enough to stroll into town and see the sights on Sunday morning. Plenty of character, friendly staff, good choice of ales and the cooked breakfast was... More

Made the mistake of not noting that this was a single. Had to abandon (and pay for) the room. Note that this is above a pub. The single room shown was not much bigger than 8x5. Probably didn't have an attached bath, declined the room before checking. The inn keeper was helpful in attempting to find an alternative location within... More
