We mainly enjoyed our first visit to The Griffin. Please accept this feedback as well intentioned. 1. Food and beer very enjoyable. Good menu to choose from 2. Service at bar and in restaurant polite and efficient. 3. The New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc was very disappointing- tasted 'oaky' and not at all what was expected. Apparently not the first time you have had this feedback? The French Sav B was better 4. Our enjoyment of our lunchtime meal was somewhat spoiled by an overly loud person who was discussing with a member of staff his plan to start his own pub. Quite impolite and should not have taken place in the restaurant. We hope to return and have an even more enjoyable meal in the future.

Very enjoyable evening Service was as good as we’ve experienced for a pub anywhere Nothing wrong with the atmosphere - the dining room was a little quiet but deserved to be busier given the quality of food and service

There was a group of 23 of us. We preordered and the meal was served hot and plenty of it and by the time they said we would get it. Service very good especially as there were quite a lot of drop in customers for food and drink in besides ourselves.

Staff need to be more aware of what the specials are, asked two different girls and neither knew they needed to ask another member of staff.

19 of us had a superb Sunday lunch to celebrate an 85th Birthday. Service was great, really attentive, food fabulous as always. Eric did a good job of looking after us, and helped make the occasion special. Thanks to all at The Griffin.

We have eaten in the bar area previously and felt it was the better option at this time of year being able to enjoy a log fire and easy access to the bar. The restaurant was less cosy and because it was Mothers day it was of course busy but service did not suffer too much. As the booking was later in the day I wasn't surprised to find the beef was over cooked for me however the gravy was tasty. We were happy that there was no fixed menu for Mothers day, as is often the case elsewhere, so just had the one course. I may have been tempted to desert had there have been more choice. Overall we were happy with the food and drink as there was plenty of choice at the bar.

The service was particularly slow. We waited over an hour and a half for food after ordering. We had to chase it up to actually receive what we’d ordered. Although the staff are lovely, there was no apology for such a ridiculous delay. On top of this, when we got the bill we had been overcharged. The wrong item had been put on our bill meaning it was substantially more. It was lucky that we noticed this error. Again there was no apology. It left a sour taste to what we thought would be a nice meal out. It is unfortunate because I have always rated the griffin very highly on previous visits. I’m not sure what went so wrong this time.

I have been to the Griffin Inn 3 times within a year and it never disappoints. Lovely place, service and food. The Odd John cafe next door is lovely too. I can't wait to visit when it's warmer and enjoy the secret garden.

The Sunday roast was great, although the portion was too large, even for someone with a healthy appetite! The kids’ menu was limited and the pizza was disappointing - not really pizza, more a baguette with some tomato sauce and a lot of cheese.
