Landlords Paul and Tina Waddingham said they were keen to restore the hotel’s historic importance.

During the refurbishment project, the couple uncover a number of impressive original features, such as a 150-year-old wine racks to 18th century wooden beams.

He said: “We’re ready to put our roots down having found such a unique venue with so much heritage. We can’t wait to finally launch and put the Greyhound back on the map.

The Greyhound Hotel’s new head chef Gary Auld has created a new menu that celebrates great British food.
