The Griffin Inn has been owned by the Pullan family since 1979. During that time, they have built up an inn with a fantastic atmosphere comprising delicious locally sourced food, finest real local ales, a renowned wine list, roaring log fires, stunning garden views and finally thirteen beautiful individually designed bedrooms. The à la carte menu includes a wide spectrum of world cuisine. A wood oven on the terrace adds warmth in the winter for eating outside, but also acts as the hub around which crowds gather for spit roast barbecues in summer. You will not be surprised to learn that an awful lot of 'research & development' goes into selecting the 120 odd wines on the award winning wine list. Wherever possible, this includes unusual and interesting wines, often from lesser known regions. There are 20 wines available by the glass and with no problem to “cork up” any unfinished bottle. In addition, a couple of interesting and eclectic wines are featured and promoted each month. The Griffin is a proper local pub with a truly authentic feel that is matched by few other establishments. There are 13 bedrooms situated both in the pub itself, and in neighbouring buildings for those looking for a more secluded stay.

A roaring fire, great food, being able to bring my dog - great friends around a table - and lovely young men behind the bar - what's not to love?

We took some friends for the first time to one of our favourite local restaurants. It was a great hit!! Food, wine, ambience, and staff all great. One little criticism is that, a little more space in between courses would be appreciated.

There were 4 of us who came for our first visit. We had 3 courses and each of us chose something different on ALL of the courses. Everything we ate was simply delicious and beautifully presented. Only problem was that one of us couldn't manage to finish our pud having eaten too much on the first 2 courses. A great evening out with some very attentive staff. Thank you
