Ate here last night as part of a group of 6. A lovely setting with an open fire and some interesting decor. The menu was a little limited compared to some places I've eaten, but there was something for everyone. The portion of whitebait for starter was a good size and the beer battered halloumi with minted pea purée was... More

Sadly too many pubs in the Taunton area are run by "chains" and this is reflected in the formulaic menus that offer a limited choice of mainly ready prepared meals. By way of contrast The Greyhound offers an interesting selection of freshly prepared food served in convivial surroundings by friendly staff. What's more the food arrives at your table piping...

We booked for a table of 4 for Sunday dinner (we called ahead to see is roast was an option). When we arrived the welcome and service was a little 'awkward' although there appeared to be a staff change 15 mins into our visit and the service became much better. We had a choice of a roast beef or pork... More

Visited the Greyhound Inn whilst staying in a nearby B+B between Christmas and New Year. Expected it to be quiet but the large car park was fairly full. The Inn is in a lovely old building and in a pleasant village. Plenty of locals in the bar which is always a good sign. Waiter immediately found us a table. Service... More

The Greyhound Inn was a great choice for a family pre Christmas lunch. A warm friendly welcome, and a good fire in the hearth was a great start to what turned out to be a great dinner time. Our choices of :- liver&bacon, duck, lamb shank, fish & chips and hamburger with accompanying vegetables of broccoli, carrots and kale. All... More

Visited the Greyhound mid week with a date. Wanted country & cosy and this is exactly what we got. We were seated at the cosy settle table by the fish tank - perfect. This pub has lots of books and crannies and is traditionally furnished. I ordered one of the vegetarian dishes from the menu to be told it was... More

We went for a family Sunday lunch and were in anticipation of our dinner due to good reviews but we ended up quite frustrated - it's very average and a star minus due to service. There are many great pubs in Somerset so won't be coming back to this one.

Many thanks for your feedback although not good from my point of view, I would appreciate it if you could provide more detail so as I can look into further. As a traditional country Inn we strive to offer good all round service but still maintaining the ambience and values of a Country Inn where all are welcome be it... More
