We'd identified this pub as a possible one for lunch. The car park was well-filled, and there were 'Cask-Mark' symbols on the doors. We were warmly welcomed, and told that, although there were tables available, Christmas party bookings meant there was quite a delay in serving food (not unexpected at this time of the year). As we were somewhat time-limited, we decided to try alternative hostelries. But there seemed to be a nice atmosphere, and the beers visible on the bar suggested a reasonable choice.
As stated below by steve2905, this would be an ideal place for refreshment in conjunction with a visit to the Papplewick Pumping Station.

I have driven past this pub on many occasions but this is the first time that we have stopped off here. The car park was pretty busy, which is always a good indication of a pubs popularity.

Overall, we were not disappointed.

5 hand pumps, but only 3 were active. I opted for the Bombardier. It was not the best pint of this brew that I have ever drunk, but equally it was a long way from the worst. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and our meals were excellent.

The Griffins Head is definitely on the list of pubs where we will drink and eat at again specially when we visit the remarkable Papplewick Pumping Station

Four real ales, in good condition but not all of which were well served. But pleasant enough.

Not the same Griffins Head I was in 2 months ago then.

The beer was ok. The previous post reads like it was made by the licensee

What a fantastic pub! We live near by, so when we heard that it had been refurbished, we thought we'd give it a go. The menu is full of mouth watering meals, that literally leaves you spoiled for choice. The service is top banana too. Nothing was too much trouble, keeping us well oiled with wine at all times, but without hovering annoying like some waiting staff tend to do. The general feel of the place is warm and welcoming, with little touches like fresh flowers scattered around the place that add to the tasteful decor.
I have actually been twice now, once at a lunch time, and secondly in the evening. I was equally impressed both times, and no matter how busy it was, they made you feel like a valued cutomer.
Booking is very much advisable, as it gets very busy, and turning up on spec I think would leave you very disapointed if no tables were available.
The portion sizes are certainly not for the faint hearted, and be prepared for good, wholesome, fresh food, cooked to perfection and finished perfectly. Also, the cheescake is to die for!!
A generally all over fantasic place. A definate favorite for me.
