We say…

The Griffin's Head is a charming British gastropub in the picturesque Nottinghamshire area of Papplewick. Situated just north of the city and along the road from parks and the River Leen, the Griffin's Head is a great place to retreat to from the buzz of Nottingham, a perfect pit stop after a walk, or simply an ideal location for a catch up with friends and family.

The Griffin is believed to be over 300 years old and is a listed building which, in medieval times, was the southern gateway to Sherwood Forest. Inside, the many original features speak of its heritage, such as the wooden ceilings, exposed beams, three open fires, and even a well in the restaurant! There is also a sizeable beer garden, perfect for the great British summer!

The food is a cut above average pub fare, with classic dishes such as Bangers and Mash being given an upmarket twist with the use of award-winning black pudding sausages and roasted onion and Stilton mash. Other delicious options include the Steak and Ale Pie with Colcannon potatoes, Smoked Haddock with poached egg, bacon and spinach and the vegan Sweet Potato and White Bean Chilli. There are also a variety of mouth-watering burgers and pizzas on offer, as well as an Early Bird menu served Monday-Saturday 12pm-6pm, with two courses for £11 or three for £15. If you're in the market for a light lunch, why not opt for a sandwich, with fillings such as Fish Fingers with ketchup or tartar sauce, or a warming jacket potato? There is also a Sunday Roast menu and a children's menu that are sure to keep the wolf from the door!

What is truly exceptional about the Griffin is its commitment to gluten-free diners, with 90% of the normal menu available gluten-free, meaning guests with this dietary requirement still get great choice!

Whatever the occasion, The Griffin's Head offers great food in a lovely environment. Book your table today to try it for yourself!
