As with many reviewers of this top-notch inn, I too am a frequent visitor. There are reasons for this: the quality of the ale, the superb food and splendid service. Landlord Dan, as already stated, would not accept anything less. As for the 'red-head', Sarah by name: she is consistently charming, helpful and diligent, and is one of the dominant... More

It is a great pub where you are always welcomed with a smile, and they even let you bring your dog in. I have always had a great service and the food is fantastic at a very affordable price. Definitely one to try.

My wife and I use the Greyhound regularly. The Greyhound itself has a tremendous reputation and strong pedigree, this is built on delivering to the highest standard on Food, Drink and Service. The food being fresh cooked and always a wide choice available. Drink, for me the wide choice of Adnams beers plus wines and spirits for all occasions. This... More

I'm a frequent visitor to the Greyhound. Last night (i.e. 10th) most recent. Even when they are fully booked for meals, a huge attempt is made to accommodate people where possible. I personally thanked the red headed lady last night as she had done just that. She managed to squeeze in a table for two (to accommodate my elderly friend... More

Another lovely early evening at the Greyhound. The small bar was closed for a private party and they had expected the second week of January to be quiet but it was anything but. Despite this we were served quickly and, as always, Dan found us a table within a few minutes. Just long enough to enjoy a great pint first.... More

We were totally surprised by this review.This would appear to be some sort of personal vendetta. The barmaid mentioned is the perfect barmaid - attentive, friendly, cheerful, beautiful- makes you want to return to the pub. Have never seen her glued to her phone, and absolutely never seen her drunk or even drink, or high, and we are regulars who... More

In reference to the reviews written by buddy3003 and fatface66 (who are clearly the same person, or 2 equally moronic individuals in cahoots with each other), I would like to say the following: We eat lunch in The Greyhound at least 4 times a week and are served every lunch time by the 'red haired' lady referred to in the...

I love this place. The staff are fantastic. I've been coming here for 25 years and the current staff and management have nailed it. I could not want a better reception and serve from the happy staff. You will not be disappointed day or night. See you there.

We are regular visitors here until now, its the time the service has not been to the standard we had come to expect which is a great shame. On arrival it took some time to get the red haired lady serving behind the bars attention as she seemed more interested in using her mobile phone and drinking rather than serving... More
