I visited this place with the in-laws last Thursday. Amazing food on the whole. It is a bit odd that you have to go to the bar to be seated as there are plenty of staff on hand to seat you. After a bit of a wait we were shown to our reserved table. Even for a Thursday they were... More

Really good food, reasonably priced. Good ale selection. What more can I say? Great to find an eatery whose sole purpose is not to get you in, feed you cheap microwave meal grade food then ship you out. Lovely gardens for summer evenings too

Main course served fairly quickly. Steak burgers were good. Desserts took ages (mainly ice-cream). Shame as we decided to give The Greyhound a visit as stopped going years ago. No obvious management around. Lack of staff and those there were very inexperienced. On another note, the outside of The Greyhound looked inviting and lovely with the pretty flower boxes.

Excellent menu, very good service at a reasonable cost. What more can you want Set in the Oxford Abingdon area, recommend booking at weekends but well worth a trip

Have dined here previously and enjoyed it. Visited on a Sunday and admittedly it was very busy, service was poor, food seemed to be microwave dependent, and not particularly tasty. However the biggest contrast was the costs compared with two visits to "gastro" pubs in the area which served freshly prepared and tasty food for considerable less cost.

Perhaps i wouldn't rave about this place as much as some of the other recent reviewers...in fairness the food was quick...as described..hot...a little expensive for what it was...but prompt...its a busy high turnover pub/restaurant...easy parking...suitable for a family..or food with mates...not so much intimate and quiet...but reccommended

Beautifully flowered front and spacious seating indoors and out. I had a quiche from the light bite menu which was just what I wanted for lunch. Lovely atmosphere and people. Dog friendly with water and a treat provided to a very appreciative mutt.
