user reviews of the Greyhound Inn, Burgh by Sands

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Utter incompetence does not even begin to describe the staffing of this place, the potential is excellent but is dismally let down by its staff, whomever "manages" this place could easily replaced by a small book that you could open once every fifteen minutes and read a short insincere platitude as to why you are not getting your meal, even when notified about a member of our party who suffers from type 1 diabetes, a condition that requires careful monitoring of blood sugars and properly timed eating habits seemed to pass completely over the heads of the staff when they were notified, I really would not recommend this pub to anyone unless I really disliked them, what should have been a special day out for three generations was ruined by ignorance and incompetence, there were no apologies offered, just a lot of tutting and eye rolling, disgraceful behavior and completely inexcusable

Excellent stop on Hadrian's wall with vg beer and a positive attitude to providing a meal when the restaurant was supposed to be closed. Highly recommended.

Pub number 3 on our Hadrian's wall walk from Bowness on Solway to Segedunum - I remember enjoying a nice pint of Jennings Best in the sunny front garden

This country pub had good service, scrummy food and friendly locals in a rather remote setting. A game of darts and a relaxing drink in the beer garden was great after a delightful lunch. This pub is a perfect refuelling stop for any hiker doing Hadrian's Wall or person passing threw. This pub was not cheap but not notably more expensive than any other small pub on the route.

Strange, smokey, dark and uncomfortable, and clearly strictly only for recognised locals. It is cheaper to buy a small glass of wine pro rata than a larger. Unreliable service, food, calibre of wine, and beer, and it has funny hours. With good management and care, this beautiful building could be a goldmine, as many 'outsiders' pass through, and some actually live in, this beautiful Cumbrian village set almost upon Hadrian's Wall, and in a place of so much history! Perhaps it will improve in 2007, when the smoking stops!
