People of The Greyhound Coaching Inn and Hotel

At The Greyhound Coaching Inn, the people are the most important part of the hotel's success. Many of the staff have been at the hotel for several years and take great pride in the high quality of customer service they provide.

The Greyhound Coaching Inn is owned by Robert Eggleston who bought the Grade II listed building in 1989 and totally refurbished and renovated the hotel, creating guest bedrooms, a Restaurant, bar, lounge and the relaxing atmosphere of the Courtyard.

Dedicated to Providing a Great Experience

Preparing food at the Greyhound Head Chef Steve Dennis has been part of the fabric of The Greyhound for 25 years and has been instrumental in building an enviable reputation for quality, well prepared and delicious food. His colleague Will Smith has worked with him for 20 years. Together they are dedicated to ensuring that as far as eating out goes, whether it's a Light Bite in the Lounge and Bar, a meal in The Greyhound Inn Restaurant, a Sunday Carvery Lunch or a Private Party, they provide the customer with an enjoyable and memorable experience.

From Housekeeping to front of house, all of the key Greyhound personnel have considerable experience individually. 

The proprietor Robert Eggleston - whilst likened to Basil Fawlty by some customers - tries to provide a unique experience far removed from that of branded hotels.

Why do customers keep coming back?

Several of our customers have been returning for the past twenty years!. They keep coming back because they want to get away from the uniformed, anonymous branded hotels which are now so prevalent.

They enjoy the atmosphere of an old coaching inn with its cobbled Courtyard, the relaxed informality where the staff know their name and their tipple, the well-presented and tasty food, the real ale - in fact, what they imagine an eighteenth century coaching inn to look and feel like. Foreign travellers, as expected, enjoy the authentic ethnicity!
