The Griffin looks like an old traditional art nouveau corner bar from the outside.  Around the right corner is one room width while the left side is much longer. There are six, six seater booths down to the left alongside the windows. To right of door is a couple of tall tables, then a three table seating area. The servery is a long thin horseshoe shape with wooden counter and brass foot rail. Tiled floor with ornate high ceiling and old-style lamps with a lot of light coming in the large windows.Walls have large and small mirrors and a tiled dado line. Opposite right side of servery there is some stools at shelves. Through from main bar is a smaller room with a small semi-circular servery called The Gin Palace, with dining style tables.
