We travelled to the area for a family wedding and chose to stay in this hotel. I read some reviews before we stayed and some of them I completely disagree with. This hotel is excellent and is everything that we wanted. The room was a good size and very quiet. The breakfast in the morning was freshly cooked and excellent... More

Visiting family in the neighbourhood, the Greyhound was recomended as closeby and good. Out of the way, a few miles from Taunton you wont find it unless you are looking - but it is a great stopping place. Our room was very comfortable, clean, windows open to allow fresh country air. Full English Breakfast personalized and prompt. We also had... More

My wife and I stayed here overnight so as to attend a nearby dinner. The pub has many original features including fireplaces and wood-burner. There were 3 ales on draught. The room we had was number 1 inside the pub and was large with a good bathroom. When we stayed we were the only guests. The pub has a reputation... More

In Staple Fitzpaine, a few miles out of Taunton, Somerset, is the Greyhound Inn. An old coaching inn, probably from the early 1800s, the inn is lovely and our room large and well decorated. Conversation with locals was easy to start in the bar and the dinners were very good, one of the best steaks I've had in the UK.... More

My family and I only went for a meal, so I cannot comment on the accommodation however the food was excellent. It was clear this was a team of chefs genuinely interested in the food they produced; the menu was varied and refreshing. I would recommend to anyone, a really enjoyable meal!

We regularly travel to this area to see family and this is our preferred place to eat. A changing and varied menu of freshly cooked food at reasonable prices. The staff are friendly and helpful and all in all you could not ask for more.

We visited The Greyhound Inn and found the most charming place we have been to in a long time. Everything was just perfect: from the food, the welcome, the rooms and the bar offerings. We had dinner on the Saturday night and had one of the specials....sublime mussels and skinny chips...hmmmm. Breakfast hit the spot in the morning after some... More

We ate in The Greyhound Inn a couple of times in 2010 when we were staying at a cottage nearby. It was good then and is still good now. We had dinner there twice last week, sea bass one night and pan fried duck the other. Both meals excellent as was the Pinot Grigio. Staff friendly, helpful and efficient and... More

Food was excellent, reasonable prices (higher end of scale) £16 for a Good Steak - best i'd ever eaten!. A good Nights Sleep and a brilliant Breakfast. Plenty free parking. And a... More
