Booked for 5 on Xmas Day 2013. Had to book in late August to ensure places (but this is the same at every place in our region!). Table was ready on arrival and was decorated very tastefully. Crackers were luxury type. Meals were very quick to arrive and the staff were more than attentive and quick to check with us if everything was ok. Meals were exquisite and extremely well presented. Portions were more than sufficient and we all left, around 2 hours later, feeling that a wonderful time had been had by all.
The Griffin is located about 10-mins walk from our home, so we have eaten there on several occasions. The standards of service and quality of meals have always been high. The Xmas Day meal was typical of what we have come to expect. Fantastic.
