“Meeting an old friend again”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Used to drink here in the early '90's and was like meeting an old friend being back. Never ate here before, did this time. Food was good quality, despite the staff mixing up our order.

“Perfect pub”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Went into The Griffin before and after going to The Kings. Only had a drink before the theatre but were so impressed with the menu we decided to eat in there after the show.

I had tomato & basil soup followed by spicy chicken - was pub grub but was really good pub grub.

Prices were really good for food and drink.

Would definitely recommend The Griffin for a drink and for something to eat

“Pre & Post Theatre Visit”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We popped into the Griffin on way to the Kings (opposite) for a quick drink before the show. Bar staff were very friendly, cheerful & helpful. We were so impressed by the staff and surroundings that we decided to head back here for dinner after the show. Food was delicious and again waiting staff every bit as friendly & attentive as the bar staff. 10/10

“Tasty Pub Grub!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

First visit here after early Friday evening performance of "Joseph" at King's Theatre. Ideal location for meal before or after early show. Meal was served promptly by a very cheerful and friendly staff. Prices were reasonable with a large choice.
Would certainly use again.
Only small gripe Gents toilet could do with an upgrade!
