The best thing about this place was The Ultimate Burger of Awesomeness.....a wholehearted meal 🍔 sat in garden, needs a bit of a tidy up, service average, bar area dated.

As we had a tastecard we thought we would visit The Griffin. Apart from meeting the fantastic bar staff I wish we never bothered. Don’t mind waiting for food if it comes out well cooked and complete. I was told there were no baked beans...More
