“Thank you so much for a lovely lunch...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Me and my husband popped in for a bite to eat today, after shopping for horse supplies! We opted for the small portion burger and fish and chips, what a great idea to offer smaller sized portions of the same meal to have at lunch time. Burger was fantastic and on par with our other favourite the 'hub box', the fish and chips were lovely (so he said) batter not greasy, and the choice of curry sauce was really good as mr fussy doesn't like tartar sauce. Lovely coffee, service and pleased with the bill at the end! We will be back! Thank you...

Thank you for your lovely second review for us! We are pleased to hear that you popped back to us and thoroughly enjoyed your visit. The small portions are always extremely popular, and to be honest, they aren't that small! I will pass your comments on to the kitchen who will be pleased to hear their burger is on par with Hub Box. Thank you again, we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

“Such a great meal! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

I visited for Sunday lunch this weekend. My parents and I were looking for somewhere that had good reviews and we'd been recommended to go there by loads of people. It was awesome! The place is beautiful and the roast was stunning! Yorkshires the size of my head. Brilliant service, especially by Kerry and I will definitely be recommending others to take a trip there!

Lunch at Griggs is always an event to look forward to. And today was no exception. The beer battered fish and the gourmet chips were excellent.
The service is always great and the staff are always very helpful.
Looking forward to our next visit

“Delicious food, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

What a great place for lunch! Our party of 6 all ordered different dishes and each was delicious, nicely presented and generously portioned. There really is something got everyone at Griggs restaurant - I loved the salmon fish cakes today! The atmosphere was buzzing and service was great. After eating we popped into the shop for a few essentials. We will be back soon!
