“Breakfast ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

We have visited Griggs for breakfast on many occasions it's always great just wish it could be a bit more consistent. I always have the full cornish depending on the chef sometimes it comes with 2 sausages and 3 bacon and other times 1 sausage and 2 bacon I prefer the mushrooms separate from the sautéed potatoes sometimes they are mixed together despite that we shall return many times in the future for the best breakfast in the area many thanks to all the staff.

Thank you for your comments regarding your breakfast visit with us. We always strive for consistency as we do believe this is important, however sometimes when we receive stock of our home reared sausages and bacon, they can be smaller in size compared to our regular suppliers, in these cases we offer two smaller sausages to compensate. With regards to the mushrooms we will be more than happy to serve them separately, simply let your waitress know when ordering your breakfasts. Thank you again for your comments, we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

“Excellent add to my list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Have been in for a coffee before, was working Saturday and arranged to meet my wife and daughter for lunch. It was busy but we were seated quickly, the attention and service was excellent, prompt and friendly. There was a good variety of food and options on the menu. We had a mixture of options, all served promptly. Both the quality, portions, value and taste was super. The location and restaurant are excellent, as I have said, will be back and will both recommend to and bring others.
