We ate here for Sunday lunch and it was excellent. Great fresh food served with 2 roasts. It was so good we booked to go back again the following Wednesday which was equally good so the standard must be consistent. Great value for money. I would recommend booking a table because even at this time of year it gets very... More

Nice welcoming place to have a meal. We had double burgers for lunch and they were very good, so large neither of us could finish. Great place for a pit stop to refuel. Free parking opposite and in a nice location next to loads of quirky little shops.

One would think that for such a price, the steak would be mediocre and the salad poor. NOT SO. I... More

My husband and I stopped for a Saturday evening meal. The menu offered two steak meals with trimmings for £20 after 5pm, so we thought we would give it a try. The choice was not just steak, but fish and several other choices. Food was hot and tasty, hubby had the steak which was cooked exactly how he asked. My... More

Four went out on our usual fort nightly meal and tonight was the Griffin. It was Steak night of which 2 of us had, we added the Garlic Prawns and the meal was tasty and very good. We also had a Chilli and Chicken Fajitas. All of which were polished off with great gusto. Highly recommend this Pub.
