“The ambience here is relaxed and vibrant proving particularly welcoming on a chilly autumnal evening. Owners, Martyn and Catriona... should feel justly proud of what they have achieved here.”
"Rest a while at this cosy, dog-friendly village pub on the border of Oxfordshire and Wiltshire. Eight rooms offer relaxing spaces to put your feet up after a day sightseeing in nearby Oxford or walking the Ridgeway National Trail, less than a mile away, while the popular restaurant serves an excellent menu.”
“There might be creaky floorboards beneath thick carpet and a relaxed pick-and-mix of furniture sourced at auctions, but the beds are new and comfortable, and there are plenty of digital bells and whistles.”
"My guinea fowl was cooked to absolute unquestionable perfection and came with an entourage of lemon and tarragon Dauphine potatoes, roast lettuce, mushrooms and a garlic puree that made me very, very happy indeed.”

“New Zealand-born Phil Currie is the head chef here and is turning out food that easily rivals – and betters – many high-end London destination restaurants.”
“It’s the little touches that go a long way when it comes to finding a good quality place to stay, and these additions... stood out continually throughout our stay.”
“…It has been sensitively and beautifully refurbished throughout… The rooms are a modern interpretation of a traditional cottage. A mix of lavish spaces accessorised to the highest standard… and every detail is exquisite.”
“… And I can’t help but draw a breath with delight when we step through the door into a quirky, beautiful room framed by ancient timbers… it is just perfect... It’s been a treat from start to finish, and we wonder how long it will be till we make a return visit. Really, what are the weekends for?”
“… This is the sort of exciting and excellent food that makes dining out such a pleasure… And I have to say that we already have a return visit in the diary. The Greyhound really is a real winner!”
“One can get relatively blasé about the endless meals imbibed when you eat for a living, but now and again a dish comes along that rips away your detachment and jolts you out of such reverie. And The Greyhound in Letcombe Regis does just that... Impressive at the very least, this is one of Oxfordshire’s best food retreats.”
“See our fabulous review in the Times' Cool Hotel Guide, where we scored an amazing 9/10...”
““Letcombe Regis locals Martyn Reed and Catriona Galbraith bought this 18th century village pub in 2015 and have transformed it from a dated spit’n’sawdust inn to the thriving hotspot it is today. A family-friendly gastro pub, yes, but also a prime spot for a pint and a ponder – this year it won CAMRA’s Best Country Pub award.” In May 2018, The Greyhound Inn also won Best Destination Pub at the Muddy Awards for Bucks and Oxon.”
“The ideal country pub for modern people, The Greyhound’s casual and convivial atmosphere belies its well-organised formula: comfort, style and great food. Set in the main street of charming Letcombe Regis, in the Vale of the White Horse Oxfordshire village, you’ll find characterful rooms, a jolly pub with and an atmospheric restaurant serving tasty British cuisine.”
“This quintessential English Inn is the heart and soul of the small village of Letcombe Regis, in the Vale of the White Horse. It offers excellent food, fine wines and real ales, eight bedrooms and a heartfelt welcome, and is a perfect retreat for walkers and cyclists, romantic couples and families. Telegraph Expert Rating 9/10.”
