We had a party here at the griffin for a family members 50th! The staff were excellent and very accommodating. The food they provided (chicken skewers, vegetable skewers, sausages and burgers) was all delicious & tasty. There was live entertainment for a singer who covered a lot of the Beatles music. He was excellent too! Drinks are always slightly expensive... More

We where here for a family birthday celebration. We had a set meal and although the starter was a bit poor the main and desert more than made up for it a bottle of wine owe couple was included in the price £20 per head! Really good value for money would definitely come back.
