The Greyhound, Beaconsfield
New pub alert! The Greyhound, in Beaconsfield Old Town, ticks all the boxes for a contemporary British gastropub. We likey.
A newbie on the local gastropub scene, The Greyhound in Beaconsfield opened in Dec 2019 with a stellar team at the helm. Owners Daniel Crump and Margriet Vandezande-Crump have oodles of experience working front-of-house at Michelin-starred spots Petrus and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay.
The Grade II-listed coaching inn is beautifully decorated to compliment the building’s original features with a cool, contemporary restaurant downstairs – think exposed beams, pops of mustard and trendy curved seating.
Upstairs you’ll find a lounge-style bar decorated with funky wallpaper and comfy leather sofas – the perfect hangout for weekend vino with the girls (Margriet has experience as a sommelier so the wine list is top notch).
Foodwise, the à la carte menu is small but perfectly formed with a modern take on classic British food. Options include Cornish Crab, Highland Beef and duck breast, with ingredients sourced from indie local suppliers where possible. There’s also a Sunday lunch offering and five course tasting menu for a reasonable £60.
