About Gryphon Pub
The History of the Gryphon
The Gryphon is a majestic, mythical creature found in ancient lore. Considered a noble beast, the gryphon has the body of a lion and an eagle’s head and wings. As such it combines the lion’s power and the eagle’s intelligence.
Carved as Gargoyles on the high walls of medieval castles, the role of the Gryphons throughout history has been to protect those inside from evil spirits.
The thousand year old spirit of the Gryphon is at home in our Pub. The Gryphon of Whitby offers you protection and respite from the world outside.
