Excellent meal and a warm welcome

We popped into the Greyhound the other day early afternoon and received a very warm welcome, we looked at the menu and thought it looked great. The following evening we went in for a meal, again we got a very warm welcome, and the food was excellent, and very reasonable priced. We were also very pleased to see that the pub was full, the pool and cribbage teams both having matches.

Sunday lunch in the sunshine.

We had an excellent meal in comfortable friendly surroundings. The customers ranged in age from about 3 to over 90. (I overheard an elderly lady at the next table talking about her 90th birthday party!)

       
Mooring Description :
Moorings near the Pleasure Boat and then a short walk to the village.
Food Description :
Food was well prepared and served with a smile. We will definitely go again with bigger appetites next time!

It's good to see a village pub so well supported by the local community early on a weekday evening. Limited menu but top marks for adding information for those who need to avoid gluten. Adnams was well kept.

       
Mooring Description :
Moorings at the Pleasure Boat Inn Staithe are £3.00 overnight but it is about a 15 minute walk up to the village and the Greyhound.
Food Description :
Limited main menu but several daily specials on offer, Adnams was good. They do actually make a point of noting which of their dishes are Gluten free for those who require it. Sadly lacking in vegetarian options, the choices were mushroom omelette, 5 bean chilli and homity pie which I opted for at £6.95. It was a potato, cheese and onion flan which was served with salad or peas, and a choice of chips or jacket spud .... it was rather bland and a bit of a potato overload with either chips or jacket spud. Other half opted for a pesto pork chop which he rated as OK but nothing special.

A much better return visit

Returned here less Sums plus one other! This really is a very pleasant pub. This time the food was excellent. Sounds very simple but the homemade mince pies and custard were delicious. Service very good humoured and welcoming. Whether the fact that this was a grey day in early January had anything to do with this I'll leave open to debate.

Food Description :
Admittedly not cheap but very good. Imaginative specials and a bit more than the typical "nut roast" for our vegitarian friends.

A major disappointment!

We sampled the pub & glorious beer garden in the afternoon & returned to dine in the evening full of anticipation. Sadly the food fell woefully short of even basic standards. Tough, grisly steaks served with raw chips prompted a complaint resulting in 'I'll tell the chef'. A further enquiry asking whether the chef had been told of our complaint was dismissed with a cursory 'yes'. This member of staff should find employment more suited to his attitude rather than dealing with the paying public. This was so dreadful we felt obliged to retire to the Pleasure Boat, a pub that was not our first choice. This pub is so attractive & promising we will return although quite clearly food quality & staff training require attention.

       
Mooring Description :
Moorings available at the Pleasure Boat although you might do better in Whispering Reeds. Moorings available adjacent to the electric point at (in our case) no charge.
Food Description :
Inedible

Well worth a visit.

Not cheap, but a pleasant greeting and atmosphere, with a pretty beer-garden. Foreground music can be a problem.

       
Mooring Description :
Near the Pleasure Boat, about three-quarters of a mile. We walked from Sutton Staithe (2 miles plus) to work up an appetite.
Food Description :
Excellent and large portions, good vfm - we should have asked for the snacks menu!

Friendly village inn with good food and excellent quality B and B.

Attractive pub with well-kept beer (at least two taps) and a nice atmosphere. There's a beer garden and a separate restaurant. It's well worth the walk from the staithe. The B and B is in an adjacent building and extremely comfortable.

       
Mooring Description :
At Hickling staithe, about 10 minutes' walk away. As with a lot of moorings this side of Potter Bridge it's not too difficult to find a spot, although they fill up if there's a regatta. Moorings are either side of the staithe and sound can carry across from the boat opposite.
Food Description :
Delicious home-cooked meal, also a good breakfast.
