Simply other places around the area which offer a better service & are a lot more cleaner. If you don't mind a cheap but nasty place then this is for you, just be prepared to see mice & dogs running around.

We spent a lovely evening last week with my family - Great service and food.
Thank you so muche Melanie for your patience and your kindness with me, and our group.
Hope there are some selection of green teas, maybe next time.

Came here for dinner as there wasn't anywhere else available in the area.
The bar is nicely furnished but no ice available for drinks. Then we were greeted by dogs running around the restaurant. The young man serving was friendly but very inexperienced. Forgetting some drink orders. The food came out and you do get what you pay for, not expensive but not anything g special. I had the 'griffin burger' just about half way through I found a hair in the burger and a hair on the glass of coke my sister ordered.
When informing the young waiter he responded with "i dont know what to do".
The chef came out and it was taken off the bill, a little bit better but I won't be returning.
It's a shame as it is a nicely decorated dining area.

Went to Toddington with some friends, had tried two other pubs as we were looking for Sunday lunch. The outside of the pub is not appealing, but the inside really surprises. It is fresh and clean inside and represents a gastro pub type feeling with a village touch. It also has a massive screen for football. The bar staff were very friendly and the menu offered your usual suspects on a pub menu as well as some decent Specials. There was also a separate restaurant part to the pub. Myself and a friend had the Griffin Burger which was really good. Everything was freshly prepared and was very tasty. The only thing that let it down was that the chips were slightly undercooked. My brother had the lasagne that was very tasty and homemade. The majority of the meals are under £9 which seemed really reasonable. The drink prices seemed reasonable too. Would recommend this place to eat.
