We needed somewhere for a decent pub meal on a return trip from Bishop Monkton to Harrogate, and decided to give the Greyhound another try. For years it had a mediocre reputation, and then I think it closed and changed hands. It was a great improvement on our previous visits. The varied menu was extremely reasonably priced, and, in fact considerably cheaper than any local pub in which we have dined recently. I chose liver and onions with assorted vegetables (carrots, broccoli and potato croquette , as it happened) which turned out to be absolutely first class. Very hot, and the liver was tender and perfectly prepared, with no stringy sinews to spoil my eating pleasure. it. My wife chose Chile con Carne, which turned out to be equally well prepared, tasty, and reasonably hot.
The service was quick, and pleasant and we had a visit from the chef to enquire how it had been. I told him it was the best pub grub we had in ages.
Further more, I was delighted that there was no background music, or television to distract or annoy us. the atmosphere in the bar was social and pleasant, and when I told the landlady how pleased I was that there was no background music she told me it was company policy to encourage conversation and sociability. What a welcome change! The p;rice for these two meals and a small lager shandy plus a tonic water came to just over £13.00, which I thought was reasonable in the present day's market.We'll be back, and I highly recommend this traditional English pub.
