The 16th-century Griffin Inn oozes old-world charm with low beamed ceilings and uneven floorboards. Guests are greeted with blazing log fires in winter or can enjoy the attractive terrace in the warmer months, where they can watch lamb and steak roasting in the wood-burning oven.

What cuisine is on offer at The Griffin Inn?
Moderne European is the title that best describes the menu, but to be more precise, the famous London's River Café strongly influences the menu with which The Griffin has close family associations. Diners can expect char-grilled Fletching pork chop with roasted celeriac, pancetta, fennel and salsa verde from the Bar Menu or the restaurant offers a more tranquil setting for a meal that might include fig, buffalo mozzarella and wild rocket salad with vincotto and toasted pine nuts to start followed by pan-fried cod, chorizo, cherry tomatoes and cannellini bean stew. Passion fruit tart with lemon zest mascarpone makes a fitting finale.
What makes a meal at The Griffin Inn unique?
The constantly changing menu is focused on the best seasonally and locally available ingredients to ensure that quality is guaranteed.
