About this opportunity

The Greyhound Inn – Sutton Stop Longford

The Greyhound is a traditional canal-side pub boasting a beautiful view of the formerly known Hawkesbury Canal junction situated at the end of the Coventry Canal Art Trail. It’s not surprising it’s been voted best Pub in Coventry & Warwickshire four times and has previously been awarded the Local CAMRA branch pub of the Year.

The Greyhound is a friendly and welcoming pub, that’s packed full of charm and character, with its quirky layout, low ceilings, stone floors, and an array of pub and local paraphernalia. It offers a cosy and relaxed space to enjoy the great selection of cask ales and freshly prepared meals.

The pub is particularly popular with families and has hosted numerous festivals featuring local ales, music and food that have been tremendously popular and loved by the whole community. Inside you will find a separate, small, cosy interior with bar and dining areas serving a large selection of fresh food and real cask ales from 2 serving points.

Outside boasts plenty of areas to explore with an extensive family garden situated at the rear. The front of the building is popular with guests who want to sit back, unwind and soak in the spectacular canalside views, watch the regular canal boats pass by the busy canal junction and admire the local architecture dating back to the 1830s.

The pub currently attracts customers of young and old who mix in a comfortable, informal environment enjoying either a chat over a drink or a meal in a safe, friendly, and happy atmosphere.

Families love the outdoor space and dogs are more than welcome. There is good business from boat trips and water taxis regularly stopping off at the pub to try the delicious food and drinks on offer and to take part in the popular quiz night.

It is a real picture postcard-worthy, local village pub which is loved by all.
