Treat yourself at The Griffin with a superb meal
Wednesday Supper Club at The Griffin has done so well that Claire and Gerhard Peleschka have added on a restaurant (as well as a real fire in the pub).
The restaurant will formally open next Tuesday (13th October) although guests have already tried out the setting for Sunday roasts and supper clubs.
Wednesday and Thursday this week saw soft openings, with regulars, businesses, Brentford Chamber of Commerce, Brentford Community Council and of course staff from Fuller's trying out samples of the new menu (see below) along with a generous supply of wine to wash it down with.
