About the Griffin
Pilgrims, merchants and even armies have crossed the Thames at Caversham Bridge for centuries, and there has been a tavern on the site of The Griffin since at least the 1800’s. Rebuilt to meet the needs of modern travellers in 1916, The Griffin offers a delightful heated patio where you can enjoy al fresco dining all summer. During the colder months, relax indoors by our crackling fires and sample our impressive range of real ales.
The Griffin is perfectly located for Thames travellers and Reading residents alike. So if you are cruising on the river, why not moor up, cross the historic bridge and stop by? We offer an extensive menu of mouth watering seasonal dishes made from high quality produce. Enjoy our hearty Sunday lunches or great value weekly specials. Book your table online today.
