Wonder through our cosy little bar areas and find a quiet corner to call your own – at least for the night – enjoy some stunning local and guest ales, our superb range of wines and some really special spirits. We’re not light on soft drinks either, the range is as varied and interesting as the rest of the food and drinks.
We believe that larger groups should receive the same quality of service and attention to detail as that experienced by guests dining in our restaurant.
We have two private rooms, one for up to 18 guests and one for up to 40.
For parties of over 50 please take a look at our separate function facility on site here at the griffin inn: The Old Stables
Meet our motley crew!
