The food was really tasty, it was quieter than normal as we ate really late however it can get quite loud when full. A very modern clean space that is quite large.

Following my trip to Griggs Restaurant this morning - I felt the urge to commend this gem of a establishment. The food is unequaled in this area, so much so that I travel 5 miles out of my way in order to experience it. Cooked to order Fresh local produce. Lovely views out over the farm land. Helpful and cheerful... More

We had a Sunday breakfast here as we do occasionally. When it first opened it was first rate, freshly cooked, good quality, decent service. Now its dreadful. Very slow service, which I can tolerate if the food is great, but its not. Luke warm food, all 4 meals, solid eggs, bits of egg shell in 3 of our 4 meals... More

Visited today for first time with family that have been happy here on previous visits. I doubt I will return for food again.

We have been coming here for some time now. It used to be a hidden gem serving great local food but it has been slowly going downhill. No one shows you to your seat, we had to go and find a menu and then order at the bar. The food was mediocre, and the portion size had shrunk. No longer... More
