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

Nice enough building and friendly staff. Food acceptable. However the room I stayed in (Room 2) was tiny, had hair on the floor and a toenail! Also the door did not lock meaning the key card issued was pointless.

Well, I suppose that there's method in their madness, room for a desert a desert...... Kerching! We were all fancying something else to eat when we left, one... More

I write to thank the staff of the Griffin for the excellent service that was shown at a family get together after a funeral.The catering provided was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble & even though the restaurant was due to open for business at six , no pressure was given to vacate the area. Very caring & respectful staff.
