Welcome to The Greyhound, a 17th century coaching inn, in the heart of Beaconsfield Old Town.
Owned and managed by husband and wife team, Daniel Crump and Margriet Vandezande-Crump, the pub and restaurant was named as the ‘One to Watch in the UK’s prestigious Top 50 Gastropubs Awards, named a TripAdvisor 2021 Travellers’ Choice Award Winner, and voted the best restaurant in Bucks & Oxon by guests in the annual Muddy Stilettos awards.
The Greyhound is made up of 3 key areas for guests to enjoy: an intimate drinking lounge and outside drinking terrace, the main restaurant for dining (upstairs and downstairs), and an outdoor covered and heated dining terrace.
The different menus showcase a commitment to using the best seasonal British produce available.
The Greyhound also stocks a diverse wine list, developed by Margriet, who is a certified sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers, as well as a wide range of international beers.

Greyhound continues to confound. First time we went it was excellent, and frankly it gets better each time. Menu was varied and innovative, the staff know their food and wine, and the wine list is sensibly priced which is refreshing these days! Strongly recommended

About the restaurant
Welcome to Riwaz Beaconsfield.
It’s long been twice-Michelin starred chef Atul Kochhar's dream to champion the cuisines of India, especially the sub-cultures of Bohri, Ismaili, Moplah, Chettiars, amongst others.

The menu of creatively enticing flavours and spices includes dishes created and cooked by Atul’s grandmother. Lunch will showcase our set 2 and 3 course menu plus the Jugalbandi set menu of four courses for two to share (£35pp).

For a time-honoured experience, the evening A La Carte menu offers characteristic main courses complemented by a great selection of wines, cocktails and customary Indian drinks. A gourmet 7-course Tasting Menu (£65 pp) will be available in the early evenings (Sunday to Thursday). All of this customary deliciousness pays homage Atul’s Indian upbringing and the states of Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Tamil Nadu, West Bengali, Orissa, and other regions.

Incredible evening spent at Unity Sky Lounge, our evening was nothing short of magical. As we stepped in, the live music set the perfect tone, and with every note, the romance in the air grew stronger. The views were simply breathtaking, adding to the enchantment of the night. The food was exquisite, each dish a delight to the senses. But what truly stood out was the warmth and hospitality of the staff. The manager, all staff and our server, made us feel incredibly welcome, and every member of the team contributed to the lively and fun atmosphere. And let's not forget those flirty cocktails – they were the cherry on top of an already perfect evening. Unity Sky Lounge has truly captured our hearts, and we can't wait to return for another unforgettable experience.
