For a little family get-together and mother-in-law's birthday celebrations, we were planned a spot of lunch at The Griffin and then mosey on over to Sheffield Park Gardens. We loved the pub. I did worry intially that it might be a little bit 'upmarket' for a family of 11 (including a troublesome 3 year old and a babe in highchair), but they were very accomodating, allowing me to reserve a table inside even though we were just there for pub grub. The local surroundings were lovely, the atmosphere friendly, the decor internally interesting and traditional but the best was the garden which had gorgeous views. After a delicious (but have to confess, pretty expensive!) lunch, we took our coffees outside to enjoy the views and let the kids stretch their legs. The garden is pretty and enormous and it was bustling with different sorts of people. There are also seats under shelter which was particularly useful on this little visit as the heavens opened. We sat happily drinking our coffees, the kids had their icecreams and even though our walk to Sheffield Park Gardens was postponed, we had a lovely afternoon in the garden of the pub! We will definitely visit again...
