Great spot for dinner after a visit to the Little Washington Winery and Wine Loves Chocolate. Delicious meal, good wine and beer selections, attentive service. Lovely atmosphere in old farmhouse with wrap-around porch and cozy dining rooms.

We love eating at the Griffin. In addition to Griffin being my family name, the food is excellent, we know the chef! It's a friendly neighborhood tavern and restaurant near where we live in Flint Hill, VA. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of food and service. Good beer selections and local and other good wines. Music on the weekends. Try it you'll like it. Plus a visit to Rappahannock at one of the wonderful B&Bs is addictive and you'll want to return often.

We had a fantastic dinner. Admittedly it was a relatively late on a cold midweek night so we may have gotten extra attention given the few customers, but the service was top notch and the food was excellent. We enjoyed the meal immensely and hope to go back soon.

Second visit to the Griffin Tavern. This time it was for my Mother's Birthday (she was visiting from out of state). The meal was outstanding and when I made the reservation I had indicated that it her Birthday. They had neat little birthday decorations on the table. Service was outstanding. We are new to the area and I have a feeling this will become a regular spot for us...

We've been to the Griffin several times and they have yet to disappoint. The burgers are amazing and my Scottish husband appreciates the British pub offerings. We'll be back soon!

I personally didn't care for the potato chips, but we had agreed to split an order of fries among the three of us, and they were delicious. Enjoyed that there were abundant and charming Christmas decorations all around. Food was delicious.

We go to Griffin Tavern several times a year and it is always great. The staff are particularly fine, with good service and helpful, friendly attitudes. Food is always tasty and satisfying. My husband likes the Ploughman’s Lunch and I am partial to the crab cakes. Fish and chips are always good. It only gets too noisy if there are large family groups, but if you request a quiet table, they may be able to find one. Working fireplaces are a nice feature, and parking is good. In the summer, they have fabulous gardens.

The food was tasty and very well presented. Our waiter, George, was AWESOME!!! He made this 50th birthday celebration special and took great care of us. This is a great place. I only wish there was a little bit more room for the band and dance floor. Thanks for a wonderful evening for this special occasion.

Our server was amazing! She was attentive and very friendly. The food did take awhile to come out, but was delicious! Only compliant was from one of the girls in my group of 5, and that was that the veggie sausages was morning star. $14 for two eggs and veggie sausage she could buy from walmart for $5 seems ridiculous. Other than that ever satisfied with our Brunch.

Lovely old house dining rooms and pub room. Beautiful location in Piedmont Virginia. Well maintained gardens for outdoor dining and great food. Our friends came from Hume and we came from Culpeper. It is the perfect half way point. We enjoyed our respective anniversaries together.
