Never tasted anything like the quiche I had, it was amazing.

A picturesque village pub near Oxford, The Greyhound is a renovated coaching inn from award-winning pub group, Brunning & Price. Built 400 years ago from mellow Cotswold stone, The Greyhound has been consistently recommended in the Good Pub Guide.

The Greyhound menu is a sophisticated compilation of eclectic flavours. A fragrant char sui pork belly salad is among flavour-packed starters, and can be followed by delicate pan-fried sea bream with saffron fondant potato, asparagus and vierge sauce. There are hearty pub classics like steak and ale pie and Kelmscott pork sausages, while a selection of enticing desserts include an exotic coconut panna cotta with roasted pineapple and a mint, chilli and lime syrup.

A postcard-worthy al fresco area at The Greyhound in Abingdon is peppered with large terracotta flower vases and covered by large canopy umbrellas. Inside, chunky wooden furniture sits on top of colourful rugs and polished wooden floorboards, and silky cask ales are on tap.

The Greyhound is 6 miles from the centre of Oxford, occupying a tranquil spot just off the A420.

    The food was brilliant and very tasty . The pub was very busy so the service was a little slow. However as we were meeting old friends who we hadn't seen for a while we weren't bothered by the slowness.

    Fabulous food great ingredients and plenty of choice. Great option both traditional and a bit special. The atmosphere, decor and furnishing are upscale countryside. The staff were friendly and welcoming they were there when needed but unobtrusive. Highly recommend it for a laid back but special meal with friends or family.
