Met some family here recently as it was halfway between us. Lovely traditional inn with good ales. Sat outside in sun with a drink while we decided what to eat. Although table booked for 6pm, they were in no rush to get us inside and told us to enjoy the sun. Food was very good, as was the service, and... More

Found this friendly traditional pub/ restaurant with rooms as we were staying nearby and it was recommended to us by locals. Lovely gardens, real ale, good home cooked food with locally sourced fish and meat. Very good value as well, unpretentious menu....just good and wholesome. The owners David and Marina are a lovely couple with many years experience in the... More

Log fires, oldy worldy, great staff, good food, worth going out for after a busy working week. We both had a delicious sirloin steak and chips. Cooked well, very tasty.

An great atmosphere in this historic building. Lots of character and good, standard pub menu delivered superbly. On 2 vistas the service was consistent and the food excellent. Prices are really good and the small appetite option means less cost and less waste; well down for offering this.

We visited this pub last week and were very pleased all round. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed the meal and drinks. They also had a pool table which made great entertainment for the kids. Thank you for an enjoyable evening.

I came for lunch and the food was delicious and well cooked. We enjoyed some real ale and then had 2 courses. One of us had the Fish Platter, the calamari rings were cooked perfectly. It then turned out we were all in a burger mood and it was lovely. A big, meaty burger in a toasted bun. French fries... More

There was one vegetarian option on the menu, which was ok. But limiting! Food used to be really good here :( Service was pretty poor and I wasn't asked to test the wine before drinking which tbh wasn't very nice. It's a lovely venue, but isn't reflected by the food and drink on offer.

Alarm bells started ringing when my wife was given the choice of which wine to drink by country rather than grape variety; it turns out The Greyhound has lost it's edge over the last few years. Food was below average, and no better than you'd expect from Whetherspoons. As other reviewers stated: very standard Hall & Woodhouse beers. Wine is... More

Lovely Sunday lunch (pity they don't do carvery) with big portion sizes and the atmosphere is lovely. The staff were a little cold but that didn't spoil the dinner. Pub also offers a pool table to entertain after lunch.
