Hi, thanks for stopping by to check out what is new at The Greyhound. Wow what a Summer we have enjoyed here, especially all the beautiful weather!
We loved celebrating our 1st Birthday here in July, how did that first year fly by?! We enjoyed a great weekend of celebrations with our first Beer Festival, several live bands and excellent fundraising for Hospice in the Weald too which was brilliant!….
andhere we are now gearing up for the Autumn as the seasons are changing and before we know we will be talking about Christmas!
Many of you will no doubt have enjoyed our Summer kitchen that we launched this year too, added on at the front of the pub. We introduced of our state of the art OFYR Grill as wanted to be different from an ordinary BBQ, it’s wood-fired and we have enjoyed using it to cook a fantastic range of meat, fish and veggie dishes. The feedback has been great, especially for the special evenings we have done, including Steak Night and our Turkish Night too.
The kitchen has now been up and running for almost a year here too and our menu is ever expanding, we still pride ourselves on keeping things simple, it isn’t gastro or fancy but tasty, wholesome and most importantly all homemade using the best of fresh, local and seasonal produce, our dishes are made from scratch daily in small batches, also ensuring that there isn’t ever much going to waste. We have a wonderful team in our kitchen headed up by Rich and try hard to offer something for everyone, we are also happy to adapt dishes wherever possible so please also just ask if needed.
Lunches are served Tuesday – Saturday 12noon – 2.30pm and evening meals on these days from 6.30-9pm and on Sundays we do Roast Lunches from 12noon – 3.30pm.
The best present we received on the morning of our 1st Birthday was a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor, it made our day! Wonderful to know that our customers are taking the time to review us and think we are getting it right, a really special review we received was this one…
Now flying into our second year here we are so proud of the way our new business is going, the support it has seen so far and feedback it has received is so encouraging, we thank you all for giving us the chance to enjoy Charcott and make new friends here in this lovely community, it certainly seems to have it’s heart back! Our August Bank Holiday Family Fun Day was testament to this, with 22 teams taking part in the annual car treasure hunt, a tradition we inherited and are happy to continue, so much fun for all involved along with live music, bouncy castle fun and lots to eat and drink!
Our Quiz Nights are now well established on the first Tuesday of each month, along with a fun folk evenings on the third Thursday of each month, with The Simpletones, entertaining us with jolly foke and fun ditties in the bar. Steak Nights have taken off too, keep you eye out in the bar for details of our next one and book your table to avoid disappointment.
The last thing to note is a date coming round soon as the pub will be closed for the day on Saturday 13th October 2018, this is because it is our Wedding Day, so hope no one minds if we have a day off!
It will be open as usual the day before and the day afterwards with slightly revised hours. These are Friday, open as usual at 12noon and closing at 10pm and Sunday 14th, open as usual at 12noon and closing at 6pm.
