The latest updates from The Greyhound

Covid 19 update

After the 30 November announcements by the First Minister of Wales we have decided to take control of the sad situation and will close from 6pm this Friday 4 December until 1 February 2021 – However - Every cloud has that silver lining…………..

During this time (we love to keep busy!) we will be concentrating on launching our gorgeous new gift shop (opening Wednesday 2 December) and doing a massive refurbishment on our outdoor area and gardens at the back of the pub, with a huge focus on coming back Bigger, Better and Stronger, ready for Spring 2021.

We will really miss you but In the meantime, take very good care of yourselves and have a safe and relaxing Christmas.

Covid safety

Special measures are in place to prevent contact and maintain social distancing, ensuring we keep our customers and staff safe:

  • Dedicated cleaning staff on throughout each shift
  • We have removed non-essential items to minimise touchpoints
  • We have arranged all tables across our 5 dining areas  to comply with social distance guidelines
  • We have completely refurbished one end of the pub, to allow us to social distance.  We hope you like it?
  • We are working to a reduced, adapted menu to enable us to socially distance in the kitchen.
  • All staff are fully trained on prevention of Covid-19
  • We will be providing table service to prevent people walking about and going to the bar
  • Take Away service is available and menu is online
  • We will be offering contactless check-in and check-out
