Stayed with Mrs F on Valentine's weekend and could not have picked a better place Warm welcome from the young lady who mans the bar and small reception area who is a credit to the place, friendly, helpful and even offered us her umbrella when we were going out for the evening. Real ales at the bar are well worth... More

Only stayed one night in this charming pub with rooms. Small and quirky with loads of character and friendly staff. Very nice breakfast too. Close enough to the centre of Bath making it overall a very pleasant experience.

We had to be in Bath for a couple of nights and settled on the Griffin as it looks like a great pub and it had rooms too. Bonus. The location was pretty good too. Double bonus. We were not disappointed. From the moment we walked in we were greeted warmly by our charming hostess who showed us to our... More

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
