Lunching Thoughts

We've always thought lunch potentially the most rewarding of all eating times at The Griffin.

Breakfast may be the most important, supper the most theatrical, and tea the most reassuring but it is lunch that is the fulcrum of any day.

Lunch is perfect both for those yearning for an interlude from the day’s business or about to negotiate one of the surrounding peaks.
