We had a lovely Sunday afternoon here. We were made so welcome by the staff and locals. A beautiful pub, with lovely gardens and grounds. The roasts were perfect. We enjoyed meeting a few locals and sharing stories. We were invited back to one of their homes for dinner later this week. A fun afternoon, Thank you.

We had a really good Sunday Lunch here. Excellent food, nicely decorated rooms, warm welcome and good service. The choice on the menu was good, I heartily recommend the deep fried Brie starter! The toilets were spotless - which is always important. The beer garden was a nice place to sit in the sun and have a port principal chat!... More

Visited on a Monday lunchtime. Service was OK but not overly fast considering the few diners. Mezze platter I ordered was disappointing, small pimento stuffed olives, plain feta cubes and stuffed baby peppers were very average but humous was good. Far too much bread and lacking a nice salad garnish or similar. Daughters burger was bland. Puddings were good. Overall... More

I went to this restaurant for an evening meal with a group of friends recently. The actual environs was quite lovely, very cosy and traditional. The service we received I felt was a bit haphazard with our waiter, kind though he was, was somewhat dis-coordinated in his approach and ability. The food was pleasant, though I think I chose the...

Decided to call in to The Greyhound after a day at Taunton races. What a lovely, typical and traditional country pub. Although we were a little early for food, the bar man gave us a menu to ponder over. We ordered our food, starters were both lovely (I had the brie, partner had the seafood platter), for mains I had... More

Couldn't fault the service and great food, recommend to anyone looking for a quite local pub with nice surroundings and a warm feeling inside. Nice food and quick service.

Impromptu decision to go out for a meal before tackling the shopping led us to the Greyhound. We hadnt booked but we were the only customers so no problems getting a table. Drinks and starters served very promptly. With the main course served almost straight away; Emma had the risotta and I had the homemade burger, both equally satisfying and... More

The evening didn't start too well as we found it quite difficult to actually get in. We went in from the car park and tried a couple of doors but couldn't open them. Turns out they were stiff but we didn't want to push too hard so went around to the main entrance. Some people would have been very embarrassed... More
