“Pleasant meal and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Went for an evening meal to celebrate a birthday.We were offered the £15 for two courses offer,which we took,but topped up with a dessert as well as a starter!!Lovely,friendly staff,who unprompted sang happy birthday and brought dessert out with a candle!!After the disappointing bar appearance the warm,cosy,restaurant was a pleasant surprise.We were the last people to leave but in no way felt rushed and enjoyed a very relaxing,tasty meal.

“Very friendly and great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

Stopped in hotel about a mile away and well worth the walk to find the Griffin Inn. Very friendly and welcoming locals and staff - nothing was too much trouble. Before we ordered from the Bar Menu we were advised of delays with food due to catering for a large group - most unusual to be told this before ordering !!! Well worth the wait - the burgers were real meat and very tasty - generous portions !! Staff advised us of what was happening with food order while we were waiting and apologised for the delay. Many people eating in the restaurant which locals advised was good quality food. There was a very "local village" feel to the pub as many people knew each other and the staff. Dominoes and crib were played and we could have joined in had we wanted to but as I couldn't recall the crib rules - even when told - I declined. All in all a great evening out at a very reasonable price.

“Superb Staff, Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2010

Have only been once but was very impressed by this first visit. It was quite late in the evening, returning from a day out and came across this place expecting service to be finished. The bar was quite busy (good sign) and when asked the barman told us he would be happy to find a table in the restaurant.
The food was lovely, the staff very attentive and the local Potbelly beer went down very nicely.
We are certainly looking forward to returning, hopefully for a Sunday Lunch very soon.
