I went for lunch and can honestly say it was the WORST pub meal I've ever had. I got charged 4.70 for a sorry lukewarm baked spud with prawn "cocktail". The cocktail was just a wipe over the horrid prawns. The pub was freezing and I couldn't wait to leave. Don't go there if you want to have anice meal!!

went in on christmas eve. trade was brisk. i did not mind waiting at the bar as it was evidently very busy but the staff were at times clearly serving friends first.

of the five hand pumps, the only one available was london pride which was dull/uninspiring.

the pub ran out of tonic water, vodka and also pint glasses. although conspiracy theorists may think the last one may have been less than accidental as the plastic pots that replaced them were small and the servings in them fell well short of a pint.

will revise my previous 7 rating to a 5.

On looking for somewhere to lunch on a weekday, the griffin looked excellent from the outside. The interior looked like a new 'retro' refurb. The service was good, although the waiter/barman looked inexperienced, the food, served in good time, was awful. Mine was not as said on the menu, my wifes, was cremated beyond all recognition. My risotto bared no resemblance to the description in the menu, and the piri piri chicken was insinerted. I have yet to try the pub next door, but my next time in the area, that is exactly what I will do... one to be avoided....

This is a nice pub. Plenty of room to sit down and normally have a couple of ale on which tend to be kept ok. The staff are nice and it now has TVs to keep you entertained. There is an ok quiz on a Thurs as well, although the same teams do seem to win every time. The food is normally nice, but as with all pubs like this you may get the odd time where it's not so good.

Is a very clean pub that does a lot of food and appears family friendly. Nice outdoor area. Beer is good and had 3 handpumps available on my visit.
