Always enjoy our trips to the Griffin. Food is always excellent and staff are friendly and helpful. Some items on the menu are a little pricey but there is a good range to choose from to suit different budgets.

I was resident with a friend for 2 nights. We used the family suite which was ideal for us. My only criticism is that the bathroom needed updating and the lighting in it was poor.

Reason for 4 on service was the 40 to 45 minute wait for food after we ordered. Not sure if there was an issue but it seemed that no food appeared for anyone in the restaurant in all that time, then all of a sudden our table and others all got their meals. Other than that, couldn't fault anything.

This was a very special family birthday occasion and the team at The Griffin provided a service that was second to none. Special thanks to Urcan for overseeing the event and ensuring all went smoothly, Nothing was too much trouble. Thanks also to the kitchen brigade for lovely food, and bar service team for an efficeint drinks service which started off our afternoon,

Excellent, friendly staff, we have only marked the service down slightly as quite a long wait for our main course.

What on earth has happened to this place. Now only serving a ping pub menu! Such a shame as had previously recommended this place to lots of people. I will now not go again and have already begun to talk to people I have recommended it to to correct my opinion. Suggest this is to be avoided until they hire chef again.

Food was delicious, nicely presented. Only comment is that it should be served hot but not scalding. It therefore could not be eaten immediately upon service. Service was excellent, attentive but not overly so. All in all a very pleasant dining experience.

We would have preferred more veg, one small bowl between two adults not enough, especially more broc and carrots, there was too much cauliflower though. Everything else was great. We do have a booking for a b-day celebration on Oct 20th in your drawing room and are really looking forward to that. Thank you, kind regards Teresa.

Nice food, good service, spoilt by awful atmosphere for a pub restaurant, very noisy, like sitting in the local village hall !

Excellent service from the staff, lovely atmosphere and very clean . Food was limited only 2 chicken dishes available. Chicken salad and chicken burger . Could I suggest a bit more chicken variety as some people don’t eat pork, lamb, beef .
