I came here one day for a meal. Service is very good and the burger I had was delicious. Well presented and very good taste. I liked the place, the atmosphere and its authenticity. I recommend it although it's not cheap.

Found a right gem. Nice venue. Great staff. Fantastic service and food amazing. So nice to find a really nice eatery close to home with tasty generous food. Rebooked straight away to bring family. Need to arrive early on a Sunday, they serve till 7pm. Great Sunday dinner. Will definitely make this a regular Sunday venue

I booked a table for my wife and myself using the mobile app. So easy to do. Even though it was very busy, we were shown to our table on time. As usual both our meals were presented beautifully and tasted brilliant.

Stayed at the Griffin on a few occasions due to having relatives in St Helens, usually very good, rooms basic but fill their purpose, however on my last visit I took my pandora bracelet (value of over £400) off in the room when we got back from a family party and I didn't pick it up in the morning due...

The meal was nice nothing outstanding, the service was fantastic and all staff where nice. However, I was really taken back that the smokers where allowed to smoke right next to the restaurants main door and as people where leaving the smell of smoke was very strong. Not a pleasant experience.

Great clean place to stay, stayed here because i had a meeting early morning in the town centre of St. Helens. Food was great and also popped downstairs early evening and enjoyed a cheap but nice beverage in their newly done beer terrace. Good price and great accommodation!

The Griffin is a lovely pub/restaurant/B&B that is run by a good team of staff headed by their manager Colin. We returned for the Haydock Racing weekend and got to the hotel mid afternoon, were shown to our room to rest and relax. The room was quite large, well fitted out and had all facilities we needed. There is a... More

We needed a place to stay for a few weeks while visiting England to attend a funeral. The Griffin was blocks away from where our relatives inn. They didn't have availability for several nights but they managed to sort us out and kept us well comfortable for the duration of our stay without tacking on extra costs. We couldn't be... More

The Griffin says its purpose is to provide accommodation for the business traveller, as a family owned hotel, to offer the same levels of service and comfort as its commercially available rivals. This is a worthy aim. It's price, £48 for a double room, is encouraging. It is a 400 year old building, formerly two stone built cottages. On the... More
