We attended the Griffin today, celebrating a 50th Birthday. We received first class service. the food was excellent, great value and the venue ideal for the occasion. Glenn was totally professional , consulting throughout the afternoon and a good ambassador.

“Family Meal on New Years Day”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

Excellent service and really nice steak. Staff could not do enough to help us and ensure that our dining experience was a good one. Atmosphere was really relaxing and interesting old pictures of Rugby on the walls. Well worth a visit.

“Just Cannot fault the place”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

One of THE BEST Sunday lunches in the area. Great value. professionally cooked and presented. The beer is a good pint. The place is spotlessly clean.
A couple of the staff members are a bit dippy but hey, we were all young once.
I keep coming back.
only complaint, occasional flutter of bad language coming from the bar area that can be heard in the family room.
Not the fault of the staff or owners. I hope that this comment has not put off any of your potential customers but it does need addressing. It could have been a one off as I am not a regular to be fair and any pub restaurant can have one idiot in there.
I will visit here again.
Get in early as the food and value is so good, this place gets packed and quite rightly so.
Well done The Griffin.

“Sunday lunch with friends”
Reviewed 21 October 2013 via mobile

There is not much to say about The Griffin, food is good and reasonably priced what you would expect really. What sets it apart from other pubs is the service, speedy, polite and unobtrusive, one young lady was constantly on the look out for orders not taken and tables not cleared, on this The Griffin scores highly, so if you want a decent meal without any fuss this is the place.
Would we go again, yes.
