We had read many reviews of the Griffin that praised the quality of the fish dishes on offer. We tried the cod and chips and found the overall dish to be pleasant but sadly no more than that. The batter was crispy and tasted good...More

We've dined at the Griffin a number of times in previous years and were impressed each time. This time, the menu wasn't as enticing as before (far less choice for fish) and the food was satisfactory but unimpressive. Whereas previously the service was lively and...More

We called for a light lunch and decided on soups. The mushroom was ok if a bit thin. The fish soup (purée) tasted alright but the bowl wasn't very large and it was only one third full; £8.50 was too much for so little.

Like everyone else we'd read the reviews and weren't disappointed, yes the Griffin is a bit compact but what a view over the bay. The staff were really friendly and helpful and their knowledge of the seafood specials menu very welcome. Our food was amazing...More

Yes, a gentleman in wheelchair dined at the Griffin when we were there. I would suggest booking to ensure access to the table is unhindered, however the staff are really helpful.
