Called in for an early evening dinner en route home. Service was excellent and the food was lovely. Great traditional English fayre and I thoroughly recommend the pineapple cheesecake to finish. They are doggy friendly as well. The staff are very polite and helpful. Do stop off for a break if you are travelling on the Swindon Oxford road, much... More

4 adults and two kids. We picked from the lunch menu and found it extensive. Even so when the food came out it was all of a high standard, the children's meals were particularly good. Excellent range of beers to choose from. Slightly pricey but for a once in a while treat The Greyhound is highly recommended.

Fantastic meal with excellent staff and atmosphere, we had booked for 20.30 but table was vacant when we arrived at 19.45, Waitress was superb from start to finish and food was plentiful and well cooked and presented. easy to see why the place is so busy.

Always very happy when we come to The Greyhound as there is plenty of choice for carnivores pisciterians and herbivores alike. Good sized portions and friendly service all add up to a lovely eating out experience. Our waiting staff was attentive and smiley, and the bar staff are very helpful. Food always, always good. Think that most people would be... More

Great beer, good food, but starting to look a bit frayed e.g. peeling paint on window frames. Excellent rage of real ales and good menu make this place a good place for lunch or dinner. Plentiful parking

Great menu, super food and warm welcome. Very popular with locals and visitors. Probably best to book a table, but we were always accommodated with a table . Super!!!
