We did not stay at the hotel but had supper at the restaurant to celebrate an important family gathering. Lovely setting overlooking the sea did not compensate for very, very slow service and and uninspiring boring food. Expensive for what we ate. We were overcharged and have not had a refund despite several requests.

The Griffin provides a very good selection of fish-if only the cooking was better! Lemon sole, John dory and bream were all insipid- the lemon sole scarcely tasted fresh. Seasoning is poor. It silmply isn't adequate to steam a lemon sole and serve it minus even a slice of lemon and charge £20. Starters were better but even a delicious... More

We ate here while during the Dale regatta, so I was very glad that we'd booked as it was very busy. Great choice of fish and friendly service. I had plaice, 2 delicious fillets. Husband had calamari, also delicious but small portion for a main meal. Kids meals were fine but again portion size was small. Would definitely return.

I am really stunned at the reviews that say its over priced. I am a fish addict and this stood head and shoulders above anything I have had for a very long time. What do people expect for fresh fish straight from the sea cooked in exquisite sauces ? The short wine list had been well put together to accompany... More

Bit of a mixed affair but overall overpriced! I had a full bodied, full flavoured fish soup which, I think, contained a lot of crab. Very tasty. My husband had some razor clams which he though very good. My turbot fillet (£24.95) was also good but not so the chips/wedges that accompanied it, these were quite greasy and floppy. My... More

Food was average but overpriced. A shame seen as it is the only restaurant in the area. Service was good, but when you pay the prices they had I expected a little more. Think if we are in the area again we will have lunch in the nearby cafe - think most other people had already worked this out as... More

SATURDAY NIGHT! We were staying for a week just up the road from this buzzing hostelry and decided to forget unpacking and go for some grub. Grub? Beautifully cooked, moist, scrumptious whole sea bream is not just grub...it was heaven on a plate. The accompanying veggies etc. etc. were very acceptable and were eaten first very quickly to allow the... More

I went in there with a couple of friends just to pass the time with a couple of drinks in the evening on a trip to that area during August, but all of the staff were very rude and gave us a very cold welcome. Everyone else in there seemed to look at us as if we didn't belong there.... More

Today my friend & I (& dogs) decided to lunch at this pub during a long coastal walk. I already knew this wasnt a dog friendly place as we had visited previously during a walk when we were caught unawares by a mid summer sea mist which was cold and damp and this was the only place for dry shelter...

My wife and I have just spent 3 very pleasent days staying in the B & B which is run by Sian and Simon. We decided to stay their after reading the reviews on the Griffin Inn. We were not disappointed, the fish we ate during the 3 nights stay was wonderful. The hospitality and friendlyness of the staff and... More
