I have not been here for awhile and was delighted with the Fish and Chips and mushy peas . The taste of the meal was very good I enjoyed every mouthful, will definately go back to try another dish.

I went with 2 friends on a course at Dillington House - there was no availability to stay at Dillington itself so we booked in here .It is a nice unassuming friendly country pub with excellent food and lovely staff - very near to taunton and not far from Dillington.The room was spotless as was the bathroom and very comfortable.

We found our evening to be welcoming, comfortable and most plesant. Enjoyed our meal, impressed with the small appetite addition under each choice of main. Extensive menu. Tastier unspoilt food.

We visited early December, for a 2 night, mid-week break. The pub was very inviting, with 2 log fires and plenty of small, cosy seating areas. It also had a good selection of real ales. The food menu was a bit limited, but the quality was excellent. The bedroom was very cosy and spacious, with a clean and bright en-suite... More

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
