Mother's day

My son took me here for Mother's day. Very nice, welcoming atmosphere and staff. The service was very quick-even though it was extremely busy. The food was delicious and plentiful and very good value. Will definitely be going again!

Lovely cosy pub with a country feel. I've eaten here a couple of times and the food is really lovely. We went on a Friday evening and the staff were friendly, though they did seem extremely busy and rushed off their feet. Some of the toast served with the paté starter was slightly burnt - we pointed this out to... More

As usual the service was first class,staff were their usual very friendly and courteous. Food was excellent as usual. I think the credit is down to the friendly atmosphere that you get when you visit this pub

This is the 3rd time that we have visited the Greyhound in the last 6 months and on each occasion we have really enjoyed our meals and the services of the staff. On Sunday 8 of us had Sunday family lunch to celebrate Mother's day and again the service and quality of food did not disappoint. We will definitely be... More

We visited for my Mother's birthday, there were 8 in our party including 2 children. The first thing I noticed in the restaurant was a pot of reading glasses on the bar - with a note which said 'forgot your glasses - why not use ours' - I thought that was a fantastic touch as my Mum is always leaving...

Lunch with my team, a chance to catch up and share ideas. Very good location, nice atmosphere, feels busy enough to be energetic but not so busy as to be crowded. Good food, well served, good value. Good solid country pub experience, nothing to complain about and plenty to like.

What a fantastic celebration, ten adults and one child met up to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday and it was wonderful, the food was superb and the service was excellent. Couldn't have asked for a better place, meal or service - fantastic, we'll be back. Thank You.

My second visit - First occasion was a party of 20 on a Sunday, they were very busy but handled our orders well considering we were all a bit 'merry'!! Went again as a couple on a Sunday evening - much more relaxed but the food was just as good. Had roast on both occasions and I have to say... More

Have visited 3 or 4 times in past 3 months and have enjoyed every meal. Good menu choices ranging from fine dining through lighter choices to pub food. Currently working our way through the menu! Booking advised as can get very busy. (Can book online).
