We have stayed at Griffin Forest 3 times and this is the first time we have been able to have a meal here ( apart from the sports bar) as we hadn’t booked. This time we made sure that we booked ahead and we are so glad that we did! The food was wonderful and the young lady serving us was friendly, efficient and professional. We had a lovely meal -Thank you
Just a great experience all round as always. Wonderful food, great service and relaxing atmosphere.
The atmosphere is fabulous, really relaxed and tables well spaced. It's a great place to catch up with friends over a meal. I've been many times and enjoyed the food every time. The desserts are amazing. The service is excellent with friendly staff. A very enjoyable dining experience.
We have been going to Tykes for a number of years and the food/service has been excellent. It was no different on this visit except tbat the custard for the desert was cold. However, this was immediately sorted by the staff.
Amazing service and food was excellent couldn’t of asked for a better night.
Good choice of food but would have liked vegetables with the sea bass, only served with potatoes
Expensive but the best meal I've ever had
Good food .Good service
We visit twice a month, usually Sunday dinner. Always lovely food, relaxing atmosphere. Only reason 4 stars this time is the pigeon breast was over-cooked, it was a little cold sat by the window and we never got our jug of water but small things. We’ll be back!
Excellent food lovely surroundings had a lovely time. Thank you
Fantastic food as always and staff happy to help. Must come here twice a month. Sunday menu and specials are a must.
My new favourite place. I just wish it was in walking distance and it would be perfect. Can't believe it took me this long to find it.
Great meal. Huge portions. Attentive staff. Thank you
We went for our regular new years day family lunch and all I can say is the food was amazing. We all chose a different meal and left feeling more than satisfied. All the staff were very polite and attentive. The whole experience made it a great start to the new year.
excellent food and service as usual
My daughter chose to come here for her birthday meal. We all really enjoyed our food. The staff were really polite and attentive. We will definitely keep returning here.
Love Tykes. Stunning venue, great food and great service. Visited here in December for the Christmas menu. Great value and great food. Thanks.
We are regular diners at Tykes and are never disappointed with the quality of the delicious food served to us.Needless to say we booked for Christmas Eve for a special family meal gathering. Although we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal we were slightly dismayed to discover that the restaurant had sold out of rump steak, cod and lamb, all of which members of our party had hoped to choose.
We were a large party of 36 ranging in age from 97 to 4 months. We were very well looked after from our initial booking to leaving the restaurant. All food arrived as ordered and was hot and tasty. We would certainly book again
Fantastic night as always. Food was amazing and staff so friendly. Always have a great time at Tykes.
Never failed to have a good meal here. Like the friendly atmosphere.
Most amazing staff ever, it’s best place we could have been for a Christmas Eve ;)
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal however would have been nice to have home made onion rings rather than shop bought - minor point but would have made it even better
Lovely place. Can't believe I haven't been here sooner. Will definately be back
Lovely meal with very attentive staff.
