This is a quirky place to eat, drink and stay. Its not a big place but you get a warm welcome with a freindly, local atmosphere. They serve a great range of drinks including a couple of beers from brugge. We didn't eat here other than our breakfast as it was included with our stay but the nearby table to...

Well what a delightful place to spend a night after a long day exploring Bath, the welcome from the staff was wonderful, beer and wine selection out of this world and the rooms both cozy and comfortable and the breakfast plentiful. I really can't recommend the Griffin enough. Try a pint of landlord too!!!

Slightly off Bath's main drag, the Griffin Inn is very well run with excellent (and good value) food, well-kept real ales and excellent value and tasty wines. The staff are polite and well-mannered. The rooms upstairs are relatively small, but comfortable. All in all the Griffin offers excellent value for money and my stay there was most enjoyable.

The Griffin Inn is everything you expect from a historic and charming establishment in Regency Bath. The carefully restored building oozes heritage, all the while being a comfortable, up-to-date and quality B&B, restaurant and pub. Combined with wonderfully friendly staff (cheers to Leah, Kate and Hannah!) and a knowledgeable and erudite landlord, I really couldn't imagine staying anywhere for future...

my wife and I stayed the weekend and had a great time. Central location allowed us to roam freely and explore Bath at our leisure. Hearty breakfast and lovely staff. Im a self confessed "tight" Yorkshireman but found the room well priced for our needs. We will be back!

The Griffin is tucked away down a quiet side street away from the main drag. I'm a big fan of real ale and I was very pleased to see Landlord on tap, one of my favourites. My wife & I are really into our wine too, but she struggles in pubs because she only likes to drink wine and therefore...

I visited The Griffin when working with the Bath Theatre Royal late last year. It was a brilliant find. We had a few hours in the pub and felt very welcome with locals chatting to us and got into some very good beer conversation whilst enjoying a quality pint of Timothy Taylor's. Post show the room was excellent and breakfast...

I had a lovely single room at the top of the pub with some beautiful artwork on the walls. I also found a friendly welcome note in my room with the offer of a complimentary drink in the bar. My friends and I made the most of this and the excellent selection of wines. The huge and delicious breakfast the...

Stayed here for an overnight stay with some family members. My initial opinion was that the bar area was well kept and the hotel seemed clean. I stayed in a room overlooking the street and it was VERY loud. It was a weekend but people seemed to be gathering outside at around 1.30am after the pubs had closed. It did...
