When we visited The Greyhound Inn to deliver its Top Pub award it was easy to see why it had been so highly recommended. There was a warm welcome, not just for us but for everyone who came in on that cold January day. Log fires were warming the atmosphere, not that it needed it, the bar and restaurant were heaving – and we were delighted to hear the chatter include much boating talk. A worthy winner.
Receiving the award, Landlord Leigh Watts said: “We are delighted to receive this recognition from the readers of Canal Boat as our customer base is made up from a diverse range of local people and visitors from the canal network and its always so nice to know that they feel that a warm welcome always awaits them here.
“We always look forward to seeing people when they are passing by again so that we can catch up with what’s been happening with them since the last time we got the opportunity to see them.”
