Food Preparation Area
The Griffin is a detached building situated in picturesque village in Trevalyn, on the outskirts of the bustling town of Wrexham and situated just 8 miles from the historical city of Chester. The pub is set in the rural area of North Wales in amongst some of the finest Welsh countryside. The pub is well supported by the locals and is a great stop gap for people enjoying the walks and countryside.
The pub trades from a well stocked central bar as you enter the pub dividing into three snug areas, two of which have log burners and is a favourite with the locals in the winter. The pub has a traditional feel with exposed brick work, slate flooring and beams throughout, all seating is in good condition and can cater up to 30 covers, although one of the snug areas at present has a pool table which could be utilised for additional dinning covers. To the right side of the pub is a reasonable sized catering kitchen and is equipped for a small food menu. To the rear of the pub is a car park for up to 12 cars and a large field which could be developed for campers and caravaners visiting the local area. The beer garden is to the left of the pub which is a lawned area to cater for approximately 8 – 10 benches. There is also a covered marquee which holds a further four tables.
The Griffin is a great example of a community pub in which the current licensees have created a welcoming and friendly pub and well supported by the community. The drinks range is vast with a great selection of products including cask ales. There is scope for a small traditional fresh menu using seasonal products. The external space is fabulous and could be utilised for BBQ’s, charity events and fun days. The pub currently shows televised sporting events but does not have sky, the pool table and darts board are enjoyed by the locals of the evening. Quiz nights and an acoustic music nights have been well supported in the past.
The private accommodation consists of two double bedrooms, an open plan kitchen / living area, an office and bathroom with an over the bath shower which is overall in great condition.
