Food at The Greyhound Inn

The Greyhound Inn is renowned for its quality pub food, all of which is freshly prepared and cooked, using locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible.  In fact, the meat couldn’t come with more provenance – it’s straight from Gap Farm in the village, from animals reared in the field right behind the pub.
