We’re pleased to announce that on 18th September, the Griffin Inn joined our tenanted estate.
The Griffin’s new tenant, Jack Werner, is already the operator of three successful West Country pubs – the Inn at Freshford, the Cross Guns at Avoncliff and the Old Crown in Kelston.
Steve Worrall, Estate Director for St Austell Brewery and Bath Ales said: “Established in 1730, the Griffin Inn is an iconic venue in Bath’s city centre. We are very proud to add this unique and charming pub – with popular guest accommodation – to our tenanted pub estate.
“We look forward to working with Jack and his team to ensure the Griffin continues to play a vital part in Bath’s vibrant and distinctive pub scene.”
Sam Grimston, previous owner of the Griffin Inn said: “It’s been a privilege to be the custodian of a Bath icon for nearly four years. It is with a combination of pride in my staff, gratitude to my guests and sadness that I will no longer be working with them, that I am selling the fabulous Griffin Inn. I believe that the new owners, and their new tenant will be superb guardians. I wish them much luck and look forward to seeing the pub continue to flourish.”
