Sunday Lunch
Stewart & Louise McKenzie welcome you to the Greyhound Inn, a beautiful 14th Century Village Inn situated in the quintessential Suffolk village of Pettistree. Chef Louise produces a wonderful menu including pub classics alongside local game and fish dishes, with the occasional Scottish twist thrown in for good measure. The emphasis is on local seasonal food, which is in abundance in Suffolk. Stewart serves up fine local ales, alongside an expanding collection of Malt Whisky & Scottish Gins.

Been here several times now. Lunch time dining & Thursday ‘curry nights’. Can’t fault it. Guess the only issue, when busy, would be the parking. But this is not the fault of the pub. Just limited available space.

Service incredibly slow. Table booked at 6pm and food didn’t appear until 7pm. Too long to wait when you have a hungry child. We had soda bread but very dry. Drinks and rest of food was good.

Had a delicious family meal at the Greyhound. Food was excellent and service was impeccable. We particularly liked the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We also bought Louise's delicious soda bread to take home with us. Can't wait for our next visit!

When we first used to go to the Greyhound the food was excellent not so good now, we unfortunately went on a curry night which we did not know was on a Thursday, was not mentioned when I booked. Service was reasonable, but didnt think the food was particularly good and was rather expensive.

We were a party of six celebrating a birthday and we had booked in advance. Our table was nicely situated by a window and we were all comfortable. Our booking was for 1300 hrs and by the time we arrived one of the main course dishes had run-out, but there was still a good selection from which to choose. We had soda bread with olives while our main courses were prepared and also enjoyed tasty drinks; some non-alcoholic.
Main courses were judged by all to be superb and the chips in particular came in for favourable comment.

I would definitely recommend dining at The Greyhound!
Warm, (in both mood and temperature), welcoming, tables not set too close together for comfort or private discussion, attentive staff, prompt service, clean, patient and enthusiastic explanations of content of meals, no long waits between courses despite the place being very busy when we arrived. Good selection if items on the menu - including completely non-boring vegetarian options.
My only small quibble is with the lighting - if you have an evening booking, the wall lights above the tables are rather fierce and shine right into your eyes. If you can solve this please, you will have perfection!

Clean plates all round for our group of four for lunch, at this special place. The owner, and waiter, were attentive. The fishcakes with slim-cut chips were clearly homemade and tasty. The braised beef, and also the venison burger, were well-received. Desserts were deliciously seasonal and local - cheeses, raspberry sorbet, and marinated pear. We were warned to book in advance, and were glad we did, because the restaurant soon filled up, and felt lively without being noisy. Reviews describe the Greyhound as having an extensive Scotch Whisky collection, so we returned the same evening to sample some - luckily we were holidaying nearby so could walk home!
