being single its quite a big deal going for a meal on your own but with my birthday looming I thought I would treat myself to a meal in the greyhound as I haven't tried it since it reopened.
started well. staff seemed attentive as I sat at the bar waiting for my table.(seats at the bar very uncomfortable.) I was told I was eating in the bar , fair enough. starter arrived quickly and was excellent. crispy pigs trotter and scallop. portion pretty damn small for £11.00. the waitress who cleared my plate was extremely abrupt, whisked my plate away without even asking if everything was alright.to be fair I think she had been sucking a lemon by the sour look on her face.(waitress with glasses, you work in the restaurant trade, you are paid to at least pretend you give a s**t!).
for main I had the rib eye, which again was great, but I only had about 5 chips (fantastic chips.).they really need to get this poncy portion size thing sorted.
it took a real downward spiral after this. no sign of the waitress, no offer of a dessert menu, didn't even come to take my plate away. I sat there 20 minutes feeling like I was in the way so I went to the bar and paid.even that seemed to take an eternity.
the owner , Lucy, was behind the bar looking stern ,sullen and unapproachable, clearly setting this as an acceptable example to the staff.(Smile for Christ sake ! if running a pub makes you this miserable get out.)
basically, love the chefs food but the portions are a rip off. female waiting staff are surly and unapproachable. male staff are more chatty and professional.
great shame because it used to be very warm and friendly pub.get the old staff back.
I have read other reviews on here and there seems to be a similar theme. overpriced, small portions and poor service. I would take note if I were you Lucy.
