A food and service formula that works well

We recognised the suggestions board on the way in. Familiar with the chain's other hostelries in Alford, Wrexham, and Overton we knew we'd get tasty food and good ale and were not disappointed. It is always worth checking the bar snacks blackboard and the staff are happy to serve them at a table.

We popped in here for Sunday dinner whilst staying locally. It was quite late around 8pm but it was still really busy and they still had everything on the menu. The food was lovely, fresh and huge portions. The staff were very friendly too. The pub itself is lovely, with a pleasant outside area. Well worth a visit.

We stumbled across this pub yesterday whilst searching for somewhere to enjoy Sunday lunch. The place was packed, but despite the fact that we hadn't booked, they managed to offer us a choice of 2 tables in the bar. Although both tables were near the coffee machine and next to an entrance, we weren't disturbed by noise or draughts. The... More

We went on a very busy day and the pub was packed out with families. The food was great and the staff were really good and coped with the deluge. On a quiet day the pub does nice food at a realistic price.

We had a very nice Saturday lunch at the Greyhound. The pub looks much better than in photos which don't do it justice. The food was very good, large selection, including a very enticing pudding menu. Service was friendly and staff helpful. There is a nice garden and play area for kids at the back and dogs are welcome. We... More

This is a great place to go for a Sunday lunch. The place was buzzing and still the staff were friendly and professional. The food was tasty, fresh and well presented. The atmosphere was the best, it had that je ne sais quoi...the kind of background noise that sounded like everyone was having a good time and enjoying each others... More

Following my last review, I am now a regular visitor of the Greyhound because it is consistently excellent. I live just down the road and I actually try and look for reasons to go now! The menu is one of those menus where you could happily order every dish, the burger however is one of the best I have ever... More

Good food, good service and friendly people - what more can you ask for! We hadn't realised that it was related to two hostelries in our home county of Shropshire, one of which we go to frequently and the other we will now try! We will be back next time we're in Oxfordshire.

Lovely friendly place, excellent service. Often very busy so booking beforehand recommended. Fabulous attention to detail with the decor and gardens, always well presented and clean. Food very good and menus original, which I believe change daily..?! Great place for a Sunday Roast also. Always a pleasant visit.
