Reviewed July 6, 2014

Stopped again for Sunday lunch and had a great meal, beef was beautiful and of generous proportion, veggies were fresh and tasty. Highly recommend. Staff are attentive and pleasant and atmosphere is always great.

“A nice surprise”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

We were hunting for a place to have dinner I'm our holiday to Cornwall and found Griggs on trip advisor so we tried it and we're not let down! They did run out of the special that we wanted but the food we ordered was lovely, the waitresses were all very nice and the prices were very reasonable, a place we would eat at again!

“Griggs. What a fantastic place”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Five of us had lunch at this fantastic place. The food was superb, can definitely recommend the pear, walnut and goats cheese salad, also the fish & chips which two of our party had a struggle to finish. Please try the gourmet chips (out of this world). There is a balcony where you can eat which has a fabulous view. This must be the cleanest restaurant we have eaten in, a lot of thought has gone into the design the china also the glassware. Please make sure you visit the shop also which has a great range of clothes and everything else you can think of. The staff in the restaurant are a credit to Mr Griggs, very neat and tidy.

“It gets better everytime”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

We have popped in for lunch several times when it first opened and it was wonderful, popped in 6 months later for dinner , even better, popped in for breakfast wonderful, back again for lunch the next day just as good, happy smiling staff, good food and great quaity, relaxed, un rushed, good value, really clean tables,cutlery, bar, kitchen area, all staff well presented and clean and tidy, Griggs have chosen well, lovely view sitting outside in the sunshine, nothing too much trouble for waiting staff, I had thought after it had been open for a while standards may slip......................but it just gets better with every visit, taken family and freinds that are visiting and they were equally impressed, would happily take business assosiates too, Will be back next week,
