Perfect pub - found at the end of the Coventry Canal Art Trail.

Former canal cottages knocked together. Inside - packed solid - difficult to move around and get to the bar and toilet. Plenty of staff on, so queue's not too bad.
Low ceiling with plenty of pub paraphernalia. Outdoor seating available to admire the busy canal junction with plenty of architecture.

Beerise, I saw Black Sheep and went for that. Served in a Bass Glass, so may have missed that. Excellent pint - in GBG 2019 - and the food was even better.

Excellent experience.

The Greyhound is a lovely Grade II listed building in a picturesque location on the Coventry canal, near Hawksbury Junction. The pub is rightly popular with the boating community, but on my visit it was full of football supporters who can enjoy a 20-25 minute walk along the canal to get from the pub to Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena. It’s also very easy to reach by car from Junction 3 of the M6, should you fancy breaking your journey, although you would never guess this from the peaceful setting.
The pub has a nice rural, traditional feel to it and retains some interesting features such as the brick fireplace that serves two parts of the pub. The interior wraps itself around three sides of the servery, with the fourth side in the adjacent dining room. The front of the pub has tile flooring, half paneled walls and a fair amount of exposed brickwork, with some high backed settles along the front wall punctuated only by a small bookcase. As the room curves around the servery towards the rear of the building, you pass a small, cosy booth on the right hand side. The rear of the room is in a similar style to the front, with long banquettes and a few small tables. The décor incorporates a lot of brewerania including a number of old enamel brewery advertisements. There is also an inevitable boating theme, with a life ring, oar and steering arm all visible from where I was sat. They were also selling hand painted canal stools bearing an image of the pub. In the rear section there was a TV screen showing the Grand Prix to a couple of customers and the radio was playing throughout my stay at a reasonable level. I didn’t explore the dining room, although it’s suffice to say that it was packed by lunchtime and I noticed a few people were taking advantage of the bright weather to sit on one of the many benches outside the front of the pub. Food is served all day, including hearty breakfasts from 10am on Saturdays and Sundays. I tried one of their baguettes with side salad and some crisps, which cost £5.50 and must be the largest, most well filled baguette I’ve ever encountered.
Beer wise, there were four ales available – Bass, Marston’s Pedigree, Theakston Mild and Burton Bridge Damson Porter (£3.10). I managed to sink several pints of the latter which turned out to be a very drinkable and moreish. The barman who served me was very friendly and remembered what I was drinking, despite the pub being very busy.
I knew almost the moment that I walked into this pub that I was going to enjoy my visit and nothing in the intervening hours that I spent here changed that feeling. This is a lovely, welcoming pub of the kind you always hope you will stumble across and it is well worth making the effort to get here.

13th September 2012, This is a great pub to head to via the canal. It is very welcoming and what a proper pub should be. They had Pedigree and Bass (which my Dad seems to think is rare thing, well for us southerners!) Mellow Yellow, a very bitter beer, Rugby Victorious,a great thirst quencher, Theakston Mild and a chocolate stout that sadly ran out on our visit.
It was very busy for a Thursday afternoon, we enjoyed a great lunch of Spag bol jacket potatoe, a really good steak baguette and a local ham sandwich, which was very thick handcut slice. All for either side of £5. The plougmans on offer sounded huge for £6, you would get cheese, ham, pork pie, pickled egg and crusty local bread! Shame we had to head back to the canal boat, could have stayed there all afternoon.
