“So very English. Go back in time! Peaceful village pub/good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

My wife and I shared the Seafood platter- Crab meat, prawns, smoked salmon, crayfish & Marie Rose sauce with rustic bread/salad etc. Excellent @ £10.95. There are similar sharing/or not sharing dishes based on Cheese, Cured Meat, or Mezze Plate. The rest of the Menu is wide ranging - something for everyone. A good choice of value wines. Overlooking the village pond - which needs a serious desilting operation. But better not complain or I will be put in the stocks - also in view. Overall, a delight on a summer's day.

We only called in for a drink or two late afternoon on a Thursday. Very good welcome, good beers and excellent location in a very attractive village. Looked at the food on the menu and this could be a good place to visit again to eat. Seemed to be a popular place to dine as more and more turned up early evening with reservations D&S 11/7

Our final stopover after walking the Ridgeway. A very pretty restaurant/pub overlooking the village pond. We arrived on a sunny Sunday afternoon and the village was heaving, as was the restaurant, although it was gone 3pm. Our room was on the first floor of a converted building at the rear of the pub overlooking a small childrens' play area and field. Very quiet. Menu was good and the food tasty. Real ale on tap. Staff very helpfull. A good choice to end our walk here, just a very short taxi ride to Tring station.

I thought this was going to be a pub with a few rooms that did food.

Oh no, this was a lovely country pub with really great staff, clientel, beautiful rooms some away from the main pub with every attention to detail looked after and a superb restaurant!

I stayed Thursday night two weeks ago and was so impressed by the place the village the staff and especially the food!

A thank you to all the staff, I really hope to be back soon!

Visited this restaurant many times in large groups and with family. The landlord is very hospitable and compliant. Food delicious and the menu varied, something for everyone. Waiting staff always polite. Please book to avoid disappointment. Haven't made use of the B&B as we are local.

Good stop off point on the Ridgeway upto Ivinghoe Beacon. A really warm welcome, a with super pub lunch food. Lovely decor and prompt good service. Pies, sandwiches, chips whatever you fancy. Others could take a leaf out of their book.

The Greyhound Inn was a warm welcome indeed after a chilly 2 hour walk with our two dogs on Easter Monday. Fortunately we had booked because the restaurant was packed.
Good food, narrow but interestng menu and a very nice end to our day. Efficient and pleasant service.
