This former coaching inn, with its creeper-clad frontage and attractive gardens, really draws you in and once inside, you are not disappointed. It's spacious but cosy with several interlinking rooms of different shapes and sizes creating an intimate feel.

We were warmly welcomed and, despite it being very busy indeed, drinks and menus arrived swiftly. The menu is original, seasonal and caters well for all tastes. I started with a very imaginative venison, rabbit and thyme faggot which was amazingly light and flavoursome and came with sticky red cabbage, squash purée and juniper jus. My husband had an equally creative smoked salmon cheesecake topped with lemon jelly and cucumber and caper salad. Not only did it look a picture, the taste was exquisite. We followed with slow-cooked feather of beef served with mushroom risotto, and braised shoulder of lamb with Dauphinoise potatoes, vegetables and a rosemary jus. Both main courses were delicious and perfectly cooked. For dessert, my husband plumped for steamed rhubarb sponge with custard and declared it perfect for a dark autumnal evening. My lemon and passion fruit sorbets finished off the meal beautifully. Portions are generous and the menu changes every six weeks, so there's every reason to come back time and again. There is also a well-considered children's menu, making The Greyhound an excellent choice for a family meal.
