I had lunch at the Gryehound. I should have learnt from experience that getting a cold stare from the barman when I walked in should be taken as a indicator to turn round and walk out. A pint of Courage ordinary bitter was £3.80 and served very cold-. My friend had a lemonade and lime which was £3.50.
Special of the day was lamb rump which was nice but rather cool when served. Expensive at £14. The steamed vegetables were just cold. A small serving dish was for 2 people. The size that would normally be for 1 person. Food was served by who seemed to be the landlord with total lack of any enthusiasm or attempt at conversation.
There were few customers but the "dish of the day" still took 40 minutes to be served!
House red wine was pricy £14.75 but quite nice as a South African pinotage.
The outside was fashionably shabby chic but the interior was just worn out 1960s. This lovely and very old inn had a carpet on the floor of a pattern taken from a 1960s jukebox.
There are much better pubs in this delightful village square.
We moved elsewhere for pudding which was not even offered at the Greyhound.
I will not be returning until assured that this charming inn has had a serious improvement which would entail at least a new landlord.
P.S. There was a notice behind the bar which said "If you have enjoyed your visit please file a report on Trip Advisor". Looking at the reviews on Trip Advisor there would seem to be not many satisfied customers!
