Four friends from London ventured into the Suffolk countryside in 2022 to take over this historic Grade 2 listed village inn, and they’re already making a mark.
Former advertising man Will Orrock, interior designer Cassidy Hughes, chef Harry McKenzie and George de Vos have come together to spruce up the interior while retaining the timeless, traditional feel that makes for relaxed drinking and dining.
McKenzie, who used to work at the River Café, has devised a menu, updated every morning, rooted the seasons and local produce.
You might start with fallow ravioli, sage butter and Spenwood sheep’s cheese, or pigeon terrine, prune mustard and winter leaves, then move on to roast roe, dripping potatoes, greens and crab apple or roast quail, stuffed onions and green lentils before taking on the peach apple sorbet or chocolate and cocoa nib tart.
De Vos has put together an impressive wine list, and with the bar being an important part of maintaining the Greyhound’s heritage as a local pub, there are usually three cask beers pouring from Suffolk brewers including Adnams and Earl Soham, plus home-made pork scratchings.
