I have eaten at Tykes many times now and every time has been great. The food is fab as is the service. Sunday dinners are particularly great and they serve later than most which is a bonus.

Whilst staying at the nearby Griffon Lodges we wandered through to Tykes. Quite an impressive country club appearance and the two young staff on duty were friendly and efficient. Steak was excellently cooked but chips were awful. Sea bass nicely cooked but not much stuffing....More

No.We think they may be allowed in the small bar area but not in the restaurant.If it is a nice day there is seating outside.If you are at Griffon Forest as k in reception and they will assist you.

They cater for children and have a child's menu but personally I would says if your children are under 5 or unable to sit still you may cause other guest some dis comfort . But it is s lovely place set in a lovely location.

No dress code but they would frown on dirty overalls but would still serve you.Arriving without clothes would also be frowned upon.
