Looking for a quick bite for lunch, you can't go wrong at The Griffin. I had the Cuban and she had the Griffin Club. Both were reasonably pri ed, filling and delicious

Went with friends and the atmosphere is fun, cozy and like you are in a pub in England. It was a great place to socialize, drink lots of beer and enjoy some snacks.
