With recent refurbishment of the bedrooms and as a regular visitor over many years I can say that I would recommend the Griffin to a traveler. The place has a homely atmosphere with a good pub, friendly staff and the food's not bad either.

Me and my partner eat here regularly. Whether it's in the pub or the restaurant we are always delighted with the food and the service! I absolutely Love the place and would highly recommend it!
