11 of the family chose to celebrate my father-in-laws 90th birthday at the Greyhound and what a wise choice it was. Booking a table was very easy, the staff were helpful on the telephone and pre-booking the main courses was a wise move. On the night the staff were friendly and helpful, the service was second to none and the... More

We thought this was so good that we went out of our way to eat here 4 times in Easter week. Apart from the food , they have an excellent selection of mainly local ales, that were well kept.

Family Sunday lunch in a gorgeous location. Pub decor beautiful, very charming and comfortable. Business clearly geared towards the dining and works well. We were seated quickly ( reservations are a must as this place is incredibly popular ) and service was friendly, helpful and attentive without being overbearing. Probably the best Sunday roast out for a long time. Good... More

After living in Abingdon and looking for a good dependable pub for family meals out celebrations we had tried many pubs over the years. After being disappointed on the consistency of quality in many near or in Abingdon we tried out the Greyhound 2 years ago and as result it is now our pub of choice in this area. Food... More

The Greyhound looked promising from the beautifully floriferous exterior and it did not disappoint. A busy Friday night but the service was calm, cheerful and efficient. There was no piped music just the hum of chatter in bright, welcoming & unpretentious surroundings. The menu was appealing and included a number of more interesting vegetarian options. I never usually eat vegetarian... More

We called in here without knowing what we would find. It looked very nice from the outside and when we walked into the large restaurant area we were suitably impressed. One look at the menu was enough to tell us we could be in for a treat. The selection was varied and extensive with an unusual twist to some of... More

Ate here with a small group of friends on a Saturday Lunchtime. The pub itself and the gardens are very pretty, very well kept and a great location for eating out at anytime of day or night. The menu has a very good selection of food from simple bar meals, to some interesting items. The only downside for me was... More
