Dinner for two on a Sunday evening. Food was OK.. boardering on good. Staff and service however were very poor. Lots of chatting/shouting at each other and very little attention to customers .

Had a lovely evening at the Griffin with some friends. Lovely food, the only disappointment being the risotto served with the Sea Bass. It was a bit of boiled rice mixed with peas. Other wise a lovely meal.

I came here for a weekday evening meal with two business colleagues. The menu is engaging with some unusual choices, nothing too expensive but all tempting. We all ended up enjoying a delicious mixed fish grill, with chips and a small jug of hollandaise. Service was good, atmosphere pleasantly lively in a neutral modern setting.

Very friendly pub great selection of beers. We were part of a birthday party in the function room, but the layout of the main bar and restaurant areas was lovely and the food looked really good. We will be back as a family to try the food.
