An enjoyable experience. Thank you. Comments made were: Serve some vegetables with the first mains. Place coffee cups on the table before bringing the coffee. Remove dirty glasses when replacing drinks Offer to serve the wine

Really enjoyed our group booking. As the organiser, it was very easy to arrange and deal with the staff, making my job easier! Everyone enjoyed their meals and the lovely added touches. Thank you :-)

First of all the drinks took 15 minutes to come out, no exaggeration we timed it! Then when the food came out they missed off half the food. We ordered "the big one" roast, it came out with only a bit of turkey, we ordered lamb and turkey! It also came without pigs in blankets. When we sent it back the waiter told us they didn't have any pigs in blankets but forgot to mention this to use until the food came out. He didn't apologise for the food once. Last of all one of our drinks had a big black piece of dirt inside it so that was sent back too. We received no apologies and received no kind of discount to compensate any of this. Our original waiter never came out to check back on us (probably because he was embarrassed) The food was good when we eventually got it but the service was very poor so we will not be returning again.

I booked a table at the Griffin for a Sunday lunch with a friend. We had a wonderful time. The food was really tasty, well presented and reasonably priced. Service was attentive without being overbearing - they even provided extra custard for my pudding without quibbling. Great place to eat!

Lovely food but didn’t have a lot of meals and puddings we asked for because they ran out. Our meal was 7:15pm so wasn’t a late meal. Lovely touch at the end with mini mince pies with the bill.

I rang to say I would be 15 minutes late and couldn't even understand the person on the phone who then proceeded to speak over me. The vegetarian option was appalling (the pie was a sloppy mess with a lid of very hard pastry on top) - I didn't eat any of it. Although I wasn't charged for this so that was positive. The vegetables were very good. I asked whether the gravy was vegetarian and the waiter never came back and updated me, however it was delivered with my dish and the second waiter seemed unsure whether it was vegetarian or not. It wasn't a good experience and we wont be coming back again. As we walked out of the pub through the bar - this seemed much more inviting, warmer and there were people eating in there. It would have been been preferable to sit in there for an improved atmosphere but the food was still horrible. Coffee was strong and overbrewed.
