The Griffin is believed to be over 300 years old and is a listed building in the conservation area of Papplewick, which in medieval times was the southern gateway to Sherwood Forest.

Now this quintessential village pub has a good reputation for offering quality food and drink along with the many original features such as its wooden ceilings, exposed beams and three open fires, not to mention the well in the restaurant!

The Griffin prides itself on offering a good range of traditional ales, extensive wines and beers. And in the more clement weather a large glass of wine or pint is enjoyed by many in our large Al fresco area where people also enjoy some of our quality seasonal produce. Plus the addition of our large field which is also a great place to play with the kids or just sit back and relax. The field also boasts many events such as our classic car shows, dog shows, weddings, food fayres, bbq’s and many more.
