March 2010 and the Greyhound looks like it is being refurbished. Builders stuff outside and signs of activity inside

August 7th 2009 and judging by the very dead hanging baskets, this pub has been closed for some time. Walked past it every night this week and there was no sign of life.

I went to the Arena before Christmas to see The Kings Of Leon (Awesome Gig) and dropped into the Greyhound for a quick one beforehand. Having been here a couple of years ago I was prepared for the usual grade of Wembley pub. Bit shocked to discover it was actually nice this time. It's still a bit rough round the edges, but it's been painted and cleaned recently at least. We ended up staying for a bite to eat and was doubly shocked to find none microwaved pub food.

Only one ale on, lame, but at least it was in good order. Deuchars at the time. My girl had a good glass of Merlot.

Will be coming back next time I do the Arena. Hope it continues getting better.

Have been in recently & was pleasantly suprised. New Bar Manager, new start i guess, & not before time too. Bar manager is great guy, staff much improved as with service too. Looks like this one knows what he's doing at long last. Watch this space!!

I have used the Greyhound on and off for many years but would never venture here prior to a stadium event due to the crowds and exploitive pricing although it should be mentioned that the Greyhound is far from being the only culprit. It is OK for Arena events as the price hikes don’t apply however, like most Wembley pubs, you wouldn’t chose to spend the night here. Its proximity to the Wembley complex makes it OK as a meeting place but at best it can be described as an average, between the wars, boozer which is either packed to the rafters or dead as the proverbial dodo. The interior is smaller than it looks, mainly as the rear of the pub doubles up as a large pool room with 4 tables and a function room also tacked on. The main bar is fairly ordinary with a few bits of coloured glass and funnel lamps hanging over the bar but there are some interesting pictures and displays on the wall including picture of the original pub and a train timetable listing 48 special trains running from Scotland for the 1928 Home International. The beers are a bit run of the mill with standard lagers and bitters although whenever I am here the only Ale (Bombardier) is usually off. There are at least 4 plasma screens and the usual run of quiz and fruit machines plus a dart board and cash machine. Generally the pub has a bit of a run down and tatty feel to it but I have never experienced any major problems here with the service although I do pick and time my visits carefully.

To the punter below. No, I'm not from the "opposition" but a local resident who loathes and despises the cynical raising of prices and hiding of the bar tariff that goes on in some pubs in Wembley on match days. Pepole should be made to feel welome in Wembley not ripped off. I know for a fact that both the Torch and Thirsty Eddie's do not raise their prices on match days and as for the price of a coke i can only hope that comments on here have shamed the pub into serving coke at a more realistic price.

I was in the Greyound last night before the England international football game at the new Wembley stadium
Yes the pints were £3.50 but as we noticed all the draught was £3.50 so it seemed logic to me and my mates to drink San Mig which in my local is £3.70 anyway. The bar staff were all really friendly and fast it seemed to us they were just trying to have fun and serve the massive amount of customers as fast as they could.When ever I look at these web sites I wonder if most of the bad comments are placed by the competition.Thirsty Eddies??We asked the price of a coke out of interest and found it is £1.80?
I will definately be using the Greyhound before I go to Wembley next time

In there saturday for the football,same comments as above,looked like a crap harvester,£3.50 for what didnt look like apint in a plastic glass,surly doormen giving you the evil eye on the way in,heard someone moaning about the four quid cokes,full of kids,what were they drinking?then the landlady walks out the door and comes back in with a multipack of 2 litre coke bottles that she,d obviously just bought from the shop next door,complete rip off,avoid like the plague,we went up that thirsty eddies as well and couldnt agree more with the review below.The people who gave the good reviews for the greyhound must have been on acid

Regarding the two posts below - I too walked into the pub was immediately told by two hapless punters about the inflated prices they had just paid. I left to find "Thirsty Eddies" up the road, a basic standard Irish pub with friendly service and first class Guinness at regular pub prices. I certainly won't be going back to the Greyhound for before any other pre-Wembley drinks. Why do pubs insist on ripping customers off like this?
mgdelectus - 1 May 2007 14:03
Regarding the below post, it may well have been myself who told of the £4 pint of coke. Then again, with the number of kids attendng the match on Saturday for England U16 I think alot of dads will have been complaining. No wonder the barmaid didn't state the price when I handed over a tenner. I was expecting paper in my hand but recieved two one pound coins for two cokes!
The air conditioning unit was leaking with no sign that anybody gave a dam, nor a bucket, as the constant drips just soaked into the carpet and let out a stench.
Barstaff were poor in attitude, and you know something is wrong with a pub when at 12:45 you have full on door staff.
Also stated outside the 'Friendliest pub in Wembley'. Considering you can;t afford to get drunk, may well be true.
An altogether scruffy, dodgy, cheap (decour I mean), unnatractive, overly expensive local drop out hang out.
Stay well clear. Actualy, stay well clear of Wembley.

Hmmm. Went to the pub before the Under 16s England international at Wembley Stadium on Saturday and was seriously unimpressed by being charged £3.50 for a lager in a plastic cup. Somebody told me he was charged £4 for a large coke - before an Under 16s international with lots of thirsty youngsters going to the match with their dads... :(

Felt like a piece of tumbleweed could've blown past us when we walked in as everyone in the place turned to look at us. Beer was okay, food we didn't try. Staff looked like they didn't want to be there. Customers were obvioulsy locals and acted like the lower end of food chain (really) and both gents toilets out of action so men were using the one of the 2 ladies loos. Both sets of ladies toilets were unbelievably filthy with no tissue or hand towels. Very hasty exit down the road to Blue Check Cafe bar who did superb food and drink - go there if you're going to a gig in Wembley arena.
