Re: Been to The Greyhound yet?

We've been three times since opening and have every intention of continuing to support them - because the food was always delicious, the atmosphere lively, and as for the service and the attention we received they were second to none.

Re: #RebuildTheGreyhound - pub to be rebuilt by April 2015?

I agree that it all looks wonderful, and can't wait to support it. The other day a kind builder let me have a quick look inside (again!) and the look of those tiles...blindingly beautiful are the words I'd use. if the food is not that good (which i doubt given the draft menu) I shall eat peanuts wit...

Horrific.

This happened to a neighbour down the road from us - I will email her and find out to came to get it. If there is a delay in giving you the information it will mean she got back late from work but I will let you know.
