Lunch with friends, had booked ahead, great choice of meals including specials and a £6 lunch special menu. All our choices were excellent, the service was friendly, meals were great value and it's so close to the town centre! Even wet dogs were welcomed! Would definitely recommend and will definitely return.

We went to the Greyhound for the first time last Friday around 5:30. We thought it would be quiet but the pub was busy even that early. There is a really nice atmosphere with people drinking at the bar and diners too, we really liked the feel of the place. The food was great, two of us are vegetarian and... More

Popped in for an adnams beer. Wednesday evening the pub was full and buzzing. We only had a beer but have eaten in the past. Great Sunday lunch and fish and chips. Portions were perfect sizes, nice and big! The owner/manager has got this place just right and all the staff seem to love their job to. Fantastic pub and... More

Came here at lunchtime, without making a reservation. There was a fairly large party of chaps seeing off a colleague who was retiring from work. They found us a table promptly in spite of the place being almost full, and still managed to take our order and serve us quickly enough, and with a smile. Reasonable prices and good, well... More

Love this pub, has been my local since I can remember and what makes it so special is the friendliness and familiarity of the staff. The girl with the red hair is one of the nicest barmaids you will ever meet, she is so welcoming and friendly and can never do enough for you!!

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.
