Our Story


A welcome addition to the local area, The Greyhound, Sydenham is a stylish, exciting pub which provides delicious food, craft beers and fine wines in a friendly and relaxed setting.

Having undergone an extensive refurbishment, The Greyhound, Sydenham opened in February 2018 to a great reception! An inn has stood on the site for over 300 years and the past few years have seen a campaign by locals to re-open this much loved pub. Through the refurbishment The Greyhound has been transformed into a place South East London locals really deserve. Fantastic, freshly made food prepared by our innovative Head Chef Stephan, great craft beers and cask ales, an interesting and varied wine list and exceptional sevice combine to ensure our guests have an experience to remember.

Alongside pub classics and signature specials from our seasonal menu, The Greyhound will be offering a range of English teas and Italian coffees which are perfect if you want to pop in for an afternoon catch up with friends. Our Brunch menu features staples such as Eggs Benedict and our excellent Full English Breakfast, alongside ingenious dishes like our Roast Sirloin Club Sandwich and the Cajun-spiced Halloumi Wrap. Our phenomenal Sunday Roasts are already a firm favourite with our guests and we have fresh water and dog biscuits to keep them happy too.

“Enjoy freshly made food from seasonal menus in our relaxed, stylish and friendly pub”

Our private dining rooms are due to open in the New Year and once the sunshine returns, you’ll be able to enjoy our patio garden also. We look forward to hosting each and every one of you over the next year and for many years to come. It seems there will be life in the old dog yet!

Notice for guests: We are proud to be a family friendly and dog friendly pub though we do ask that all children, dogs (and adults too of course) are well-behaved and under control at all times, for the comfort and experience of all our guests.
