We enjoyed an anniversary dinner, and the staff surprised us with a table decorated for our celebration, as well as a complimentary dessert, which was very thoughtful! The ambiance on the front porch was wonderfully quiet, beautiful, and comfortable. The food is always delicious, the spirits were perfect, and the staff was exceptional! We will always come back!
We were disappointed that we had to sit in the bar. They had several big groups with celebrations and couldn’t honor our reservation at a table. Bar chairs were high and difficult for two of us to get in.
Awesome atmosphere ... great food ... wonderful time!!
It is always pleasant to sit outside with good friends for a lete-summer lunch at Griffin Tavern, and to enjoy the calamari appetizer and the chocolate cake dessert. The entrees, however, were disappointing this time. The "specials" of the week were mediocre rather than special, and presented as if everything was simply thrown onto the plate. It might have helped our appetite (and enhanced the ambiance?) if our waiter had mustered a little more attentiveness—and energy. Without jumping to conclusions, we begin to wonder whether GT is becoming tired, and whether it is still worth the 100-mile roundtrip.
Always try to stop by when we’re in the area. Consistently good food and service, never disappoints. Celeste did a great job with service!
Food was good as usual. Server did not appear at our table for 15 minutes.
We love our times at Griffin Tavern!! It’s not far from home, and it’s quite a nice place for a really nice meal!!
Everything was incredible, as always. We were seated outside, as desired, even!
We had a great dinner at Griffen. The staff was very attentive and provided excellent service, the food was outstanding and the atmosphere was excellent for our anniversary celebration. Would recommend Griffen Tavern to anyone looking for a good night out, you won't be disappointed.
The staff was exceptionally nice. We really enjoyed our dinners and the beer selection.
What a great place this is. The building is wonderful both inside and out. Food was delicious, especially the pavlova. Do yourself a favour and eat here soon.
We were on the front porch. Wonderful weather and ambiance. Steak was requested medium rare to rare, came medium. Appetizer of egg on salmon was wonderful.
Thanks we had a very good time and a good server
Been going to Griffin Tavern for many years and the food, service, ambiance is always the best. The Owners and staff are always cheerful and make the experience wonderful for everyone. Highly recommend.
We go here typically for Sunday brunch but have been for dinner a couple of times in the last few months. The food and service is always good and the menu changes so you always have good options.
As usual, both the ambiance and the food were wonderful! The restaurant is in a lovely country house that is perfect for enjoying a leisurely lunch. There are ample choices on the menu (both standard menu and specials list) that would suit any palate. Service is friendly, attentive and professional. A friend and I started meeting at Griffin Tavern for lunch whenever we can since Flint Hill is a mid-point between her house and mine. I enjoy the restaurant so much that my husband and I have driven all the way out there from our home in Warrenton for dinner and undoubtedly will do so again since he likes the restaurant as much as I do! Everything out of the kitchen is chef-prepared, by which I mean tasty and attractively presented! Additionally, when my friend and I meet for lunch we tend to make it a very long lunch since we will be going our separate ways afterwards. The wait staff has never pushed us to leave.
This was our second visit. Both were fabulous! This place is a gem. The service staff are all very friendly and the food is great!
Great Sangria. Good band but very loud in the small bar. Outside patio is comfortable.
This restaurant is my new favorite. The atmosphere is relaxed, but it is charming and lovely! There are framed photos on the walls (some for sale), and a gallery upstairs. Lots of smaller, more intimate rooms; it would never feel like a big, noisy restaurant. You really feel that you are in a country inn. The food is great; my husband adores the British fare menu. We will go back many times...for events large and small!
Always enjoy the everything about the Griffen Tavern, so glad they are close to us.
Birthday. The waitress was aware and wished my beautiful wife a happy birthday which was nice!
We will try the porch next time. Small dining rooms make it darn near impossible to have private conversation
As always, a lovely setting, excellent service, and great food and drink - including some holiday specials!
Nice ambiance in a delightful Flint Hill restaurant. Good varied menu with excellent food and great service from a charming waitress. Highly recommended.
Usually we love this place. Sunday was not very good. We waited over 15 mins for a server. One drink came, we had to ask twice for the other ice tea. The poached eggs were hard and the hash browns were cold. The English muffins were not toasted. Very disappointing.
What a peaceful, wonderful place for lunch. Service & food were outstanding.
Friendly, efficient, attentive, professional service from start to finish. Our meal was well-paced and the various courses arrived in a way that we did not feel rushed or overwhelmed... neither did we have to wait. Everything was very well prepared and seasoned... everything arrived fresh and piping hot. The calamari was to die for! The French onion soup was the best I have had in ages. My steak was perfectly cooked as was my wife's stuffed pork chop. The gelato was a perfect finish. Kudos to everyone!
Amazing food and service! The Surf and Turf and desserts were on point!
Food was very good but a little pricey. I would return and recommend it to a friend.
Great menu selection, drinks very good and ambiance wonderful
Recommend to anyone in area looking for a great restaurant
We always enjoy our visits to the pub! We introduced some friends to the place and they loved it to.
Best restaurant in Rappahannoc County! Delicious food never disappoints, and the specials are just that! We love Griffin Tavern
Great time! Our group of seven enjoyed lunch mid-week and the everything was great. We had the fish and chips, burgers, steak and cheese, BLT, and club sandwich. Service was very good and accommodated separate checks! Have been several times before and always enjoyed it.
We enjoyed the meal and the service. We will be back!
We had a nice Birthday celebration dinner for 6 people in the front room of the Tavern. The only problem was the band started playing in the pub area at 7:45pm and the door was open between the dining area and the pub. It was so loud we couldn't hear each other at our table. The band was definitely too loud for the room it was in......
Great food, great service. Nice drink selection. Definitely recommend!
Griffin Tavern was a winner again, fora tasty lunch with dear friends. The delicious food and attentive service increased the pleasure of sitting outside on a perfect day in May and enjoying lively company.
The new and creative menu has us coming back often ;) We LOVE Rachel's tofu and appreciate the gluten free options ! Great wait staff. Very friendly and accommodating!
Griffin Tavern's back porch was a wonderful place for lunch with friends. The food and service was very good. The locally made kielbasa board was really good...with a nice mustard infused cheese, local chutney, and delicious grilled bread alongside. Thank you.
Nice place with good food but bad wine and a taxi $.40 charge to taste a beer even if you end up buying for glasses
