user reviews of Greyhound, Bengeo

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

Six years on and what a difference.
The pub has had a refurbish and an extension following a fire.
New landlord and landlady are in place and what a smashing couple they are.
Considering we had only just met he was very interested in my real ale preferences.

The Citra Chaos (£3.90) was the freshest pint I have ever had (third one pulled from a new barrel).
The landlord is hoping to get a guest ale in place (not easy to achieve in a Mac's pub).

The menu is limited but not pricey.
The landlady/chef is very interested in customers feedback, mine was, it makes a nice change for food to be served on a hot plate.

I can't believe I have said all this about a McMullen pub - not like me at all!

The 'CAMRA' brigade wrote how impressed they were with six hand pumps on the bar and Mac's allowing guest beers along with AK etc. Not so when I called in.
AK, Cask and Doom Bar was the limited choice. Prices are high, The Doom was 3.45 and the Wadworth 6X (coming later) 3.70.
Food wise, the limited menu's tag line says, 'If you don't see it please ask'. They should change it to, 'Even if you see it: Don't ask'.
Omelette was not on the menu so I asked the Landlord if the chef could make one for me? No, chef couldn't. Instead I chose the Chicken Pie with vegetables - which was on the menu. "Sorry we have no veg'" I was told. (this was Saturday lunchtime for goodness sake). I accepted the offer of chips and baked beans. The pie was small and the plate was cold.
Another meal we had was the Chicken Tikka with Naan bread. Half-an-hour after ordering we were informed there was no Naan bread. No alternative was offered nor price reduction.
TIP: You won't need your Credit or Visa card, not because it is cheap - they do not accept them.
It is pubs like these that make Wetherspoons look good - just.

Recently refurbished landlord (!). Nice friendly, local pub. Good solid food and guest ales.

This is a classic local pub in Bengeo. The beer is excellent, as one would expect from a McMullen pub less than a mile from the brewery, but that is about it. It would appear that the tennants and the regulars are both happy to maintain the status quo.
