We were walking the Offa's Dyke and had advised Dave that we would be at the car park around 3:00pm. We were late but he still checked on us and drove us to the Inn. Note--hikers do not walk the road to the Inn from the Car Park. It is dangerous with no shoulder. Dave is the new manager and... More

Decor and food from a bygone era. Party buffet with processed food and undestinguishable sandwiches, bland and without any real taste. Long wait to get a drink at the bar due to lack of staff, who when available didnt know how to poor a beer properly. The place desperately needs a make over....decor and culinary! Wont be back any time... More

We visited the Griffin many times a few years ago but it changed hands and went downhill. As it has recently changed hands again and are offering a 2 course meal for £7.95 we thought we would give it another try. We (5 of us) were very glad we did. The whole place was light and airy and the host... More

We booked this pub as it was situated at a convienenant stop off point on the Offas Dyke Path. When booking I was quoted £50 for a twin room b&b. No deposit was taken or requested and no conformation email was received despite two requests. This did not bode well! When we arrived we were greeted by Ben who was... More
