We called in for lunch...not been here before but there was a warm welcome. Nicely decorated pub with lots of pictures and a garden with things for kids to play on. We had a shared cheese platter which was very nice...our grandson had an 8oz steak burger (with extra bacon because he doesn't like cheese!) that he demolished! Can't say... More

We had a very enjoyable meal here in late June. The place was buzzing and had a nice, cheerful ambiance. The staff are the greatest assett. They were all very attentive, polite and professional. The menu was nothing out of the ordinary but the food was very good and plentiful - in fact just what we wanted from a pub.... More

This restaurant is beautifully laid out and very appealing, but on several occasions l have found the service indifferent. I had a pleasant meal but food and drinks were quite expensive for a quick lunch.

Lovely busy pub with great food. The service is sometimes long but well worth it. Good Veg options too. Nice range of beers and wine as well

Met with some friends for lunch mid weeks. Was disappointed when no pear cider was available so ordered a beer but then had to ask it to be topped off as it was well short of the measure. The top-up barely reached the measure line on the glass. When we ordered food, one of us wanted a ham sandwich but... More

Three of us went for lunch on quite a busy Friday. Big restaurant about three quarters full so obviously quite popular. All had the Rump steak sandwich which came with a few chunky fries. Quite a large steak in a ciabatta roll. A couple of small chewy bits but on the whole a decent flavour steak & would probably have... More

Everytime we go to The Greyhound we have great food, freshly cooked and served. The Staff have always been friendly and attentive. If you are ever driving past take a quick look at the CarPark, speaks for its self!

Don't know how many times we passes by this pub thinking: we should try it out! Eventually we went last Sunday and it didn't disappoint. Lovely outside space, lovely pub, and lovely food.. The burger was delicious.. Will surely be back.

Thank Chiara C
