I have been to The Griffin a few times, and I think it is fantastic. I always visit on weekdays around 12-4pm, when it is not very busy.It is exactly what you would want from a Strip Pub. Entry is free and drinks are sensibly priced - £2ish for a soft drink, for example - and all you have to pay for the girls is £1 a time to watch each strip off on a small stage at one end of the pub. The girls strip completely nude on this little stage, so you get to see everything, but not from particularly close up. Still, naked ladies every 10 minutes or so can't be bad.At the time I usually go, private dances cost £10. For this service you are lead to a side room which features a few more poles and small sofa-cum-seats. You take a seat and watch for about 5-6 minutes as a scantily clad woman dances and strips just for you.
Now all the girls strip nude, but you take you luck as to how explicit the dance is... some will strip sensually, giving you a fleeting glimpse between their legs, others will wiggle their naked bum and fanny almost in your face! Either way, for £10 it is a good deal.The ladies are a mixture of British and European I would say. They all speak English, and are happy to have drinks bought for them from banker-types, but I don't go in for that nonsense. All I want to see is a sexy naked lady giving me a good close-up view of her privates, and that is absolutely what you get at The Griffin. I hope this encourages others who might be nervous, as I was at first, to go along. The atmosphere is very relaxed, everyone is friendly and the ladies are all to willing to show off in front of you.
