At £9.99 this has to be one of the best value and best quality Sunday roasts anywhere! There was a choice of beef, pork loin, lamb, or turkey and between us we just had the beef and pork. Both came as very generous portions with lots of meat, fresh veg, and lovely roast potatoes, and huge Yorkshire puddings. There are lots of other choices on the menu including a full range of starters. Sevice was a bit slow to start but it was very busy with large Christmas parties. This is a lovely old style pub with lots of atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit and at this time of year a booking is a must.

Very cosy atmosphere with an open fire and cosy seating we had roast turkey which was delicious roast potatoes cooked in goose fat nicely cooked veg generous amount of meat and stuffing a huge plateful which I was unable to finish but prefer this to stingy portions. Service was good and it was busy with a few christmas parties too. I am definitely returning even though it takes 25 minute drive it is well worth it for the £9.99 delicious roast the other plates that other diners had looked equally delicious.

Although the Griffin is now part of a chain, (Brewers Fair, not sure how long this has been the case) it's still not a bad pub, selection of beers is not bad, the food is pretty good, the steaks are actually pretty decent, which makes a change for a pub. I think it's best to book if you are looking to eat over the weekend. It also gets pretty packed on a Friday night, but it's a good atmosphere and nice and cosy in the winter..

Hi, this is by far the best bar food in caversham. Staff v efficient (although bar a tad slow) but we couldn't fault the food. Atmosphere is also v cosy and warm. Ideal for winter cosy lunch or dinner after a walk on the Thames.
