I stay here regularly for work and it's always a pleasure. The staff are always so pleasant and attentive, especially the young girls behind the bar. The food is tasty and generous, a personal favourite is the Goats Cheese Salad which is yet to disappoint! The rooms vary in standard, the doubles upstairs are lovely, the singles downstairs are a...

Called here with my wife (a last minute decision ). Had a very nice meal in pleasant surroundings. My only criticism is that we had to que up to order order our meal. Apart from that, it was a nice evening.

My boyfriend and I stayed here when we went to a Saints game. Just expected your usual pun with rooms but this place totally exceeded anything we had in mind! Genuine welcome, fab food, hotel standard rooms, great friendly rugby themed atmosphere and all brilliantly priced. Couldn't have asked for any more. Thank you so much, we will be back!

Excellent food well presented I would highly recommend the restaurant here. We noted how busy it was on a Wednesday evening which speaks for itself. Both waitresses were helpful and friendly. 3 courses each a bottle of champagne and a couple of pints came to just over £100 and was worth every penny. We hadn't been here together before despite...

We have just come home from a 2 night stay at The Griffin, we had originally booked another hotel but they had heating problems so had to move us. We weren't disappointed though, and as it was Valentines weekend, the manager pulled out all the stops and got us a table for the evening and the food was outstanding. We... More

We booked a table for 6pm, and by the time 7pm came were wondering why we bothered booking. All the meals that came out of the kitchen seemed to go in the opposite direction from the dining area. The wine and the starters appeared relatively quickly, but the main meal we had to enquire as to it's whereabouts. We received... More

My husband and I booked for one night as we were visiting friends nearby and were picking up a vehicle from them so we had a trailer, thankfully the car park was large enough to accomodate the trailer and all the hotel guests so a plus from the start. One thing that grabbed me when I walked in was that... More

We had a steak sandwich that was good. The fajita was probably the worst i've ever had. The tortilla was burned and the sour cream was just thin as water. Friendly staff and it was clean. I will not be eating there again , but it's a great place for drinks.

We recently went to The Griffin for a birthday meal and had an excellent time. Being in December time, we didn't have particularly high expectations, but we were very surprised. The food was great. Good portions, good taste. Excellent service. The atmosphere in the restaurant was great, even though it was Christmas time there was no overcrowding. Everyone had a... More
