The Griffin Inn is a handsome roadside inn, traditional, quirky and very friendly, with lots of covers and a couple of bars, attentive staff and a warm welcome. Sunday roast is ace, service very fast and the building, decor and atmosphere is fine. No pretensions, no unnecessary frills, no gastro pub fakery, just an honest wayside inn, eatery and rooms....

Whilst on holiday in North Wales, we visited friends in Flint for the day and they took us for a drive around the beautiful countryside and stopped at The Griffin for lunch. A traditional pub, slightly worn around the edges which added to the charm. The landlord was very friendly and welcoming which made a good start. A good variety... More

I stayed here the nights before and after my first day walking Offa's Dyke. It is in prime location for such trade, and other hostelries, further from the path, were full. The room was fine and bedding clean. The meals, for which I was joined by a number of friends both nights, were very average and slow in coming- though... More

This is a nice B&B and pub just east of the town of Ruthin that can be used it as a base for local exploration, attendance at the International Eisteddfod in Llangollen (about 40 min away), or a night's stop after hiking in the area. The host, Huw, takes hikers to various paths in the morning as noted on the... More

We organised a Church day out for 30 people, which ended at the Griffin. Huw, the landlord, was really helpful in the run-up, offering us a great two course menu (which we tried out on a recce- delicious!) for a very reasonable price, and he was very easy and businesslike to negotiate with. We arrived a little early, but Huw... More

Three friends and I had just tackled Moel Famau (mountain overlooked Llanbedr DC and Ruthin) in incredibly wet and cold cold conditions. With one of us injured, and all of us soaked through and shivering, we needed a place to stay as camping wasn't an option. A local cabbie recommended the Griffin and called through to them to arrange a... More

My wife were staying at the nearby Castle Hotel and we're recommend this restaurant by a member of staff for dinner. By no means plush, the dining areas were quaint but basic, well used tables & chairs. But the saving grace was the food, fantastic liver & onions with real mash potatoes, and the superb posh fish platter, cod, haddock... More
