The Griffin is Dining Pub of the Year for a fourth time running, according to the new 2014 Good Pub Guide.


The Griffin receives a Cesar from The 2013 Good Hotel Guide, an award given to its 10 Hotels of the Year.  Also Welsh Inn of the Year.


The Griffin wins the AA's Wine Award for Wales in its 2012 - 13 Hospitality Awards.  Overdue recognition for Julie and her wine team.

The Griffin is given a hallowed Bib Gourmand by the 2012 Michelin Guide. Something we always look for when using the Guide, so a thrill for the team to be recognised in this way


i-Escape celebrates its 10th Anniversary with some very flattering
