About The Griffin Inn
The Griffin Inn is a genuine country pub, serving great food and ales and of course we're located in the most beautiful part of Leicestershire with loads of great scenery and walks right on our doorstep.
My husband and I just love it here but then we are biased as we had our wedding reception here..the meal we had was to celebrate our 2nd Anniversary and you didn't disappoint.. Thank You
Very enjoyable Sunday lunch, great service and food
Wonderful food and great service.
We have always found the Griffin an excellent pub for eating out.
Awful service, had to ask four times for drinks on two separate occasions, waited fifteen minutes for first drinks despite being the only customers in the restaurant. Not offered any condiments with our food, had to ask again. Waitress bought our food over and didn't even know what was on the plate.staff didn't know what beers were available and despite asking for a drinks menu this was never provided. Food was alright but over priced for what it was.
Lovely food but unfortunately ruined by them putting the wrong food in and overcharging us on the starter.
I was disappointed with the Sunday lunch (nowhere near as good as the Lions event we attended at the Griffin the week before). To serve a huge half chicken with roast potatoes and vegetables in the summer seems odd. I should have had the fish. Barbara's sweet was not a proper tiramisu and had too much artificial syrup on it.
Pub was lovely, my food was delicious, mussles, though my boyfriends burner was dripping with grease as soon as he picked it up, he was able to eat it but wasn't to the standard he expected. Staff were really friendly but as we were put in a back room with the door shut over instead of being asked if we wanted to stay in the garden or one of the other occupied rooms, we were almost forgotten about a few times. Would come back for sure, this did not ruin our dining experience. It just come have been a little better
We loved the pub the decor and feel of the place was sophisticated and relaxing- clean and friendly The portion size was a surprise I struggled to eat the Sunday lunch The staff in particular the younger girls seemed a bit disinterested and could do with engaging and smiling We will be back
Found the potions small for the cost No courtesy checks
When we arrived we were served by Martyn who was absolutely lovely! He does have hearing aids and did misshear one of our orders - which was easily fixed.. we were all in utter shock when the manager came over to apologise then dropped a comment saying ‘he needs his hearing aids changed’. That was an awful thing to say considering he was really nice and only made a small human error.
Private party of 18. Pre ordered food and they had forgot one of my guests mains? How can that happen?
Pleasant visit, food good. We were moved into the restaurant from a table in the bar, but would probably have preferred to stay in the bar. Other than that the staff were very obliging.
The meals for a group of 25 were pre-booked and served quickly. The helpings are generous, well cooked and great value for money and the staff are friendly and very efficient.
Nice, professional service
Apart from a waiter spilling a bit of coke on the table and not offering to clean it up, a first class meal. Would recommend for a Sunday roast.
Good food, atmosphere and service
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.
Will be back
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
Nice pub good selection of food choice
Although there was a wedding reception at the same time we received very good service. All the staff were very pleasant and friendly. We will definitely be back 😁
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.
Lovely time had by all, food was delicious and service great!
A very warm welcome and attentive service. Will return and recommend
