Description of Griffin Inn in Cheshire

An 18th century inn on the old Warrington to Prescot turnpike road at Bold Heath, once part of the distinguished Bold family estate. Close to the townships of Warrington, Widnes and St Helens, The Griffin Inn serves delicious pub meals and seasonal specials with fine wines and cask ales. Located on the old turnpike road from Warrington to Prescot in the ancient hamlet of Bold Heath, The Griffin Inn is an imposing 18th century pub restaurant with a fascinating history. Once within the estate of one of the region’s most renowned ancient families, the inn has played an important part in the history of the district for hundreds of years. The inn takes it’s name from the legend of a griffin that terrorised the villages of the Mersey Estuary from it’s lair at nearby Halton Castle, until it was slain by local blacksmith Robert Byrch, earning him the title of Robert the Bold. According to the folklore, as a reward the king offered him lands as far as he could stretch the hide of the dead creature. The cunning blacksmith cut the body into pieces and scattered them over the area that became known as Bold Heath.
