AS OF THE 20TH MARCH WE ARE CLOSED

It is with great sadness we have called last orders in all our pubs for the time being to support the fight against COVID-19. But don’t worry, we are busy working on opening our doors again with the safety of our teams and customers as our number one priority. While we continue to follow government guidelines, we’re getting excited for the day we can meet again and raise a glass in the pub.

Until then, stay safe, and don’t forget us!

OUR VIRTUAL PUB IS OPEN!

While our pubs are closed, we’ve decided to open a virtual pub, The Lock Inn. We know many of our customers are feeling cut-off from their friends and for some a visit to the pub is the only social contact they will have in a day. The Lock Inn aims to help tackle loneliness and isolation by offering activities and entertainment to encourage interaction. We’re starting with a WEEKLY INTERACTIVE QUIZ on Wednesdays at 6pm and ROCK AND ROLL BINGO every Friday at the same time, with more events and community support activities planned over the coming weeks.

Welcome to the

Griffin

 

Located on the old turnpike road from Warrington to Prescot in the ancient hamlet of Bold Heath The Griffin Inn is an imposing 18th century pub restaurant with a fascinating history. Once within the estate of one of the region’s most renowned ancient families the inn has played an important part in the history of the district for hundreds of years. The inn takes it’s name from the legend of a griffin that terrorised the villages of the Mersey Estuary from it’s lair at nearby Halton Castle until it was slain by local blacksmith Robert Byrch earning him the title of Robert the Bold. According to the folklore as a reward the king offered him lands as far as he could stretch the hide of the dead creature. The cunning blacksmith cut the body into pieces and scattered them over the area that became known as Bold Heath.Less than five minutes from the M62 at Junction 7 yet surrounded by rolling farmland and open roads The Griffin Inn is the perfect location for a delicious pub meal or a relaxing Sunday lunch with family and friends. With the port city of Liverpool the banks of the Mersey and Knowsley Safari Park all in easy reach this fine country pub is the ideal location to meet with friends after a day spent walking the Mersey Way soaking up Liverpool’s culture and attractions or encountering Knowsley’s wonderful wildlife. Enjoy a delicious pub meal savour a seasonal special or treat the family to a relaxed Sunday roast with a choice of fine wines and cask ales.
