About our venue

The Griffin is located on the outskirts of Reading in the suburb of Caversham. With the River Thames flowing behind the pub, if you are on a cruise down the river, you can moor up, walk over Caversham Bridge and call in to enjoy some great food or quench your thirst! There has been a pub on the site since the 1800's and it was rebuilt in 1916. In those days eels were a speciality, fished in the river and brought to be sold in the pub. Today welcoming open lit fires will greet you in the winter to give a warm reception and during the summer you can enjoy a heated patio area to have your meal al fresco. Like all Chef & Brewer pubs we employ high quality Chefs who have superb kitchen facilities. The food can be chosen from a main menu or unique Specials from the chalk boards which allow our Chefs to show their flair! The fish dishes are a particular favourite. You will be served meals which have been prepared from the freshest of ingredients and cooked to order. To complement your meal there is an extensive choice of quality wines or a good selection of real ales if you prefer. We are well known for our real ales and are part of the CAMRA Beer Trail so if you are not hungry, pop in for a pint of the best. All are made to feel very welcome at the Griffin.
