Welcome to The Greyhound, a 17th century coaching inn, in the heart of Beaconsfield Old Town.
Owned and managed by husband and wife team, Daniel Crump and Margriet Vandezande-Crump, the pub and restaurant was named as the ‘One to Watch in the UK’s prestigious Top 50 Gastropubs Awards, named a TripAdvisor 2021 Travellers’ Choice Award Winner, and voted the best restaurant in Bucks & Oxon by guests in the annual Muddy Stilettos awards.
The Greyhound is made up of 3 key areas for guests to enjoy: an intimate drinking lounge and outside drinking terrace, the main restaurant for dining (upstairs and downstairs), and an outdoor covered and heated dining terrace.
The different menus showcase a commitment to using the best seasonal British produce available.
The Greyhound also stocks a diverse wine list, developed by Margriet, who is a certified sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers, as well as a wide range of international beers.

One word Sums up The Greyhound Beaconsfield, to include staff, food and ambience - Superb! Cannot fault it at all and we have dined here a few times now and it never fails to maintain such high standards.

Lovely evening celebrating at the Greyhound. Our first time here, and we both very much enjoyed our meal and the many 'extras' and between courses. The menu was short with around five choices per course and portions were modest. Each course was served with ceremony. Only marked down slightly on ambience as I didn't particularly like the upstairs room - it felt a little like an exotically decorated school hall. Downstairs looked cosier. The restaurant was full on a mid-week, mid-winter night - a testament to its quality.

We ate at 7.30pm for the first time here after visiting previously for lunches . As usual the staff were fantastic, attentive ,polite and humorous. They all have mastered the difficult balance of being friendly but not overly so and never intrusive. The food was absolutely delicious. A very minor error with ordering was rectified without any fuss -we then had the benefit of both roasted potatoes and French fries. What’s not to love !
We are already planning a return and a joint birthday treat later in the year.

This establishment is going to win a Michelin Star I'm sure of it and will then be so popular we won't be able to re-book !

Daniel is a great owner/host and the staff along with chef James are all outstanding!

An amazing meal, with fantastic service, in a very welcoming environment.
We ate from the Festive Lunch 3-course menu, taking a few glasses of the wine recommendations.
Excellent food, great service, and for the quality also very good value.
We will return again!

Excellent lunch at the Greyhound. Staff were genuinely enthusiastic and attentive - glasses kept topped-up and didn't have to ask for anything.

Food was excellent. They clearly have a great team in the kitchen, who are inventive and enjoying their work, creating unexpected amuse-bouche(s) to delight the customers. Faultless.

Great to have this super restaurant in the area - I wish them all the success, they clearly deserve it.

We had a pre NYE family lunch and what a treat it was! I opted for the Festive Lunch special, an absolute bargain at £35 for 3 courses, particularly given all the lovely extras The Greyhound include. Everyone else went a la carte with duck and the venison being swooned over. Perfect food, perfect service, a great way to prepare for 2022! Thank you!!

Amazing food , fabulous staff and service. Upstairs decor is very disappointing and doesn’t reflect the calibre of the food. It is far too bright, the mirrors on the wall are not in keeping and it is lacking atmosphere. The downstairs is far better
