Wonderful Hour Spent here

we went to the Greyhound Inn last week and were so surprised, interconnecting dining areas, warm log fires, spottlesly clean and shining furniture, we were welcomed by a very sweet young lady at the bar and decided to have lunch there, Beer battered Cod and chips, it was mouth watering, hot crispy... read more

Returned to The Greyhound to enjoy their Sunday lunch. We all had the Roast Pork which was plentiful, tender and tasty. The veg and roasties were great. The homemade tomato soup tasted wonderful, but needed to be heated a bit more. The wine was very good served at the right temperature. All in all very satisfactory and good value. This... More

This place was one of my haunts many years ago and have visited occasionally over the years with varying degrees of satisfaction. Last week, on a visit from overseas, I went for lunch with soother family members. The food was acceptable, if a little boring but the staff were, whilst not rude, certainly not very friendly for a country pub.

Visited today as I enjoy to treat myself on Sunday and I like to go to the Greyhound for couple of pints and a nice meal. It's a lovely old English public house set in a beautiful location, within the nice village of Staple Fitzpaine. Nice in the summer with outside seating to enjoy the sunshine with a pint and...

We have been to this pub before and it has always been ok... not great, but ok. On a recent return we had to wait nearly 40 mins for a salad and a burger which really was not worth the wait. Not once did a member of staff come to explain there was a delay on food. We were very... More

Another fine Sunday lunch. Excellent food and service. All home cooked food, no frozen or pre-packed food. A fine example of how food should be cooked, presented and served. A well done to the whole team.

Not the biggest menu but enough variety none the less. Portions are big, so go there hungry. Service is quite good, prices are average.

I've been going to this pub for many years and it can usually be relied upon for a decent meal. However, the last three times I have been I have had to wait an unacceptable time for the meal - nearly an hour on the last two occasions. On my most recent visit we had a table booked for 1.15pm...

We have been to The Greyhound many times and have always been happy with the food . Unfortunately tonight we noticed things have gone down hill. It's sad to say as we always chose The Greyhound as one of our favourite pubs to eat at. The food was quite bland and my lasagne was dry. My husband had fish &... More
