This is a traditional pub with small bar area with snugs and turf fire. You will not find any TV or food here. It is centuries old and has a great cozy feel. Great pints and relaxing with local people.

Stumbled on this pub after walking into the one next-door, and told if we wanted a genuine boozer simply climb the linked stairs into the Greyhound. Had a great night, good music, great atmos and very good Guiness.
