A new lease of life to the Greyhound!

The new owners have made a big improvement all around, there is now a good atmosphere, and greatly improved food, with friendly staff who are very professional

We eat at the Greyhound regularly. Having lived locally all my life I know this beautiful old pub well. I have eaten here many times over the years and the food has never been better than now - ? new chef. We cannot recommend any dish specifically - you will just have to come back again until you have tried... More

Lovely country pub with log fires and interconnecting rooms. Good , friendly service. Excellent food - the venison was some of best ever tasted. Prices fair for quality of food served. Produce is locally sourced and it tells in the freshness and taste. Selection of wines by the glass not great. Beers very good.

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...
