Griffin Inn is a country pub and restaurant with guest rooms located in the village of Llanbedr Dyffryn Clwyd near the market town of Ruthin in the Vale of Clwyd. In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Griffin Inn is set in an ideal location for exploring the local area and further afield in North Wales and the borderlands of Cheshire.
In 2020 the Griffin Inn re-opened to rave reviews following a major renovation of the downstairs bar and dining areas as well as the upstairs guest accommodation.
The Griffin Inn was built in Gothic style, as part of a series of estate buildings for the Llanbedr Hall estate.
Other listed buildings in the village are the Gatehouse (Grade II), St Peter’s Church (Grade II*) and Plas Isa (Grade II). “St Peter’s Church” gives the village its name – “Llanbedr” means St Peter’s Church in Welsh.
Griffin Inn has been a Grade II listed building since June 1999. Being Grade II listed means that careful thought has had to be given to maintaining the unique look of the building whilst adapting it for modern, 21st century use.
