On the way back from STEAM at Swindon (husband's birthday treat), we took a chance on getting a table for two at the Greyhound, even though we hadn't booked. The staff were happy to accommodate us as we'd arrived fairly early in the evening and were intending to be on our way home promptly. We opted for the shared Charcuterie... More

Yes,the minted peas were nice and the Fish and the chips cooked spot on,but still a bit overpriced. The reception we had on entering was a bit... More

A very disappointing visit. Food not great and service poor. Arrived on time for a booking and waited while people in front of us, who had not booked were found a table, to then be told our table wasn't ready. We were politely asked if we would like a drink and look at the menu while we waited for the... More

Visited for the first time and enjoyed the experience. Staff were pleasant, helpful and the ambience of the Inn was very nice. They had a varied food menu and a good range of beers on tap. Worth a visit.

Nice, traditional looking pub, with plenty of parking spaces and nice flowers when in bloom. Good ambience inside and a nice traditional pub feel to it. Food is very good and reasonably priced. Appears cooked to order and homemade. Sad that the baked camembert is off the menu. Been here few times before and service always been very good. On... More

Living in Oxfordshire for 25 years, I always thought this was a pub I could rely on for a good experience and good food. Due to my personal circumstances I don't eat out often....maybe six times a year so it's a special treat. My son and I met up with his Godmother on a Friday evening. I remember saying let's... More

Excellent child-friendly, dog-friendly restaurant. We had a party of 13 adults, 2 babies and 1 dog. Staff very welcoming and friendly, so lovely to find child-friendly and dog-friendly restaurant where we could all be together. Food excellent. Will go again.

Lovely Sunday lunch. My husband was looking forward to his favourite, roast dinner and he wasn't disappointed. Good puddings too and all served in a traditional country pub atmosphere. Extremely busy with a waiting list be seated, so would recommend booking. Good choice for a relaxed lunch.

Called in on off chance on way back from holiday and all other places we may have chosen had yet to open, but not the Greyhound. Had delicious inventive starters followed by equally wholesome mains and all before 6 o'clock.

My family and I went here for a meal, there were 7 of us. The welcome was warm. The service was great and the food was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We will definitely be returning.
