Trippadvisor was correct again. A group of old school friends and partners meet every year and we have been using the Fox on Boars Hill for many years. Latest information told us The Greyhound was much better for food and service. The waitresses were very helpful, patient where needed and always smiling. The service was efficient and even though the... More

Been a over a year since we came last, this time we brought the whole family. It's nearly half way for us to meet our Daughter & Son-in-law & we remembered how nice this place was, we booked a table in advance as we knew it would be busy before Christmas & it was. The atmosphere was fantastic, staff were... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant, and after our last visit we were already planning a follow up visit. However, although the food was very good as before, we got the impression that the staff were trying to get us in and out as soon as possible. We arrived at around 7.20pm on a Friday evening, and the... More

Making a spontaneous stop here during a long journey, we were not disappointed. Tastefully decorated for Christmas, the pub had a welcoming atmosphere. Attentive, friendly staff served us. Good variety of dishes on menu; delicious food; pleasant surroundings. Would visit again.

We have been to the Greyhound many times, this time we went to celebrate a family occasion, the pub was busy but the staff were great and provided excellent service for such a large group. Thank you for a great evening.

Weekday lunch for two: greeting was immediate, warm and friendly. Service was good, although only criticism would be that no water was offered for the table and there were no water glasses present. Tables were a little bit cramped together but back to back so you could have a private conversation. I guess this is necessary because it gets busy... More

As a party of 12 adults we were looking forward to a pre Christmas family lunch at this restaurant, which was recommended by my mother whose experience of Sunday lunch had been a pleasurable one. Well, I think it's safe to say that the restaurant struggles with larger groups; our main course was served so sporadically to individuals that by... More

Stopped here on spur-of-the-moment coming back from Oxford to swindon. Checked first for availability. No problem. Checked variety of menu, again no problem. Atmosphere lovely....no TV or music blasting out!!! Food superb........highly recommend battered haddock and chips. Decked-out for christmas absolutely lovely and served by a lovely young well-spoken, polite young lady. See you again next week!!!
