Will Larter left this review about White Horse & Griffin

The long, narrow room to which the front door admits has a narrow bar at the end, with a restaurant through a doorway behind and a lounge upstairs. Two people were just in front of me and they, like me in my turn, were offered the chance to take our drinks up to the lounge, but I was quite content to remain downstairs where there are a few chairs to perch on, and so were they. It's far from publike and I couldn't help thinking that more could have been made of this room, but I suppose that at busier times it is not much more than a foyer and the real money is made from diners and those staying the night. The beer I had, Black Sheep Bitter, was in decent condition but I wouldn't return here unless on a mission to drink in every pub on Queen Street, for example.

We had lunch in here last Wednesday. We were initially impressed when the ale on offer turned out to be Timothy Taylors Landlord, but after waiting 55 minutes for our meals, which were alright, but nothing special, we left disappointed.
