Quinno _ left this review about The Greyhound

Scooted down here as it stops serving at 11.30pm on Thursdays. A little off the beaten track down a side street outside of the arterial road that effectively signifies the boundary of the town centre. Inside, it’s an inverse J shape with the bar at the apex. Fairly basic with aged brown fabric banquette seating, curtains, modern brown carpet and off-white walls and ceiling. Dart board. 8 pumps and 7 on, with a good selection of northern and midlands regionals. My Oakham Citra was a little warm but ostensibly fine – though at 11.15pm on a Thursday night a beer as good as Oakham should never be warm, so presume they are guilty of stocking more beers than they can shift to please the sweet-shop CAMRA crowd? There were a small band of locals in after 11. It was fine, probably worth the yomp on a crawl but the warm Oakham makes me think that it isn’t essential.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Greyhound

A decent watering hole this one, especially for the prison wardens coming off a shift from across the road. We popped in on a Saturday afternoon when the pub opens at 12pm and not 3pm according to Camra WhatPub. I immediately went for the Bewdley Brewery Worcestershire Way and then one of their regular beers Bradfield Farmers Blonde. They had a choice of seven ales on handpump on our visit. There was also a beerboard on the wall, listing their forthcoming ales, settling in the cellar.
We sat in the far lounge with was slightly bigger than the front room. This area had cream walls, comfortable banquette seating and a carpeted floor. The bar had a pine counter and a brick foot rest along the floor perimeter. The lounge area had lots of bric a brac and the theme was obviously to do with greyhounds. A decent respectable pub, so well worth a visit.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Greyhound

Welcoming real ale pub with two separate entrances on different side streets, and both sides feature a white façade 9albeit in very different styles). Generally well-lit light decor within the twin-bar layout, each with an unfussy and tidy appearance. Good choice from mostly smaller breweries from a total of eight handpumps, including the Bradfield Farmers Blonde (£3.10). Well worth seeking out.
