Four.one's review is somewhat wide of the mark. First of all Mondays are their 'day off' and whilst the kitchens have a limited menu that day they are closed in the evening. If the service was slightly slow then it would be worth popping in there on another day when they are really geared up to serve lunch and dinner. Youngs Ordinary at 3 pp is less expensive here than all the other local hostelleries. Food is made to order, not pre-made and left to sit, so you get what you pay for and you should be happy to pay for what you get! The Harrington family serve the best beer in the area, their standards are reflected in the very hard working landlord&landlady and some of the prettiest bar staff that you will ever encounter. The chef is Danny, and his food is earning The Griffin an unrivalled reputation in the area, and beyond. Passing_By's comments aren't really quite true either, the average age in the Public Bar is probably around 30, and the Saloon Bar and the garden have a wide range of clientele. The bars both have Sky TV for Sports fans, although the Public Bar is usually where the action is on that front. The Saloon Bar is lower profile and only on major Rugby days does the TV come into play there.

Nearly nine quid for a ham and cheese sandwich and a pint of Youngs Ordinary is making this establishment pricey. Also had to wait the best part of 45 minutes to be served when ordering at 2.15pm on a Monday afternoon. Why does it take that long to make a sarnie?

Great pub. In a bit of an urban setting, but has a real cozy feel inside. Paving slabs on one side of the bar, carpet on the other. Quite a few tables outside but they're by a (quiet) road.
London pride, Youngs and Adnams regatta on pump, all pretty good. Excellent, cheap food but we had to wait quite a while for it.
