We stayed two nights at the Griffin. Friendly staff helped us get settled. Rooms were fine, small but very comfy. Location was great - a few minutes walk from all the sights in Bath. It wasn't a cheap place but I think nothing is in Bath. A word of caution- the staircases are steep, winding, and plentiful. If you have...

Lovely old pub in the centre of Bath. Friendly staff, good, clean and comfortable rooms. Great breakfast. The cask beers are well worth sampling. Local bar with welcoming regulars. Couldn't have asked for anything more.

Stopped in for lunch yesterday having previously only been in for evening drinks before on the way to shows at the Ustinov Studio. Love this pub. Genuinely friendly staff that deliver real service. Good selection of real ales. The food was delicious. I had mackerel on warm potato salad with pickled cucumbers and other half had ham, egg and chips....

Excellent location, really friendly staff and a really good atmosphere in the pub. We've visited a few times and really enjoyed drinks here so this summer decided to stay the night. It's such a good location for a night out in Bath, right in the city centre. The building itself is an old inn and the rooms are indeed a...

A friendly local pub and restaurant. The staff (both on and off duty) as well as the local clientele were very welcoming and helpful. Travel tips, local event information AND assistance finding accommodation on a booked out weekend during a rainy University Graduation weekend festivities. All were fantastic! Above and beyond! Local networking saved the day, night rather! Thank you...

A gorgeous little inn set within a couple of minutes walk of all the sites. Staff were really friendly and very accommodating. Bedroom was a perfect size and a comfortable bed. Both dinner and breakfast were very well presented and tasted good. I'll definitely be taking a trip back. Highly recommend for a short stay in Bath!
