The Greyhound Public House is nestled in one of Norfolk’s most famous Second World War Villages – Tibenham. This unique, traditional and very friendly pub has been managed since 2010 by Rob Smith and his partner Fawnda Mathison.
The pub was built in 1710 and has maintained its status through the many years, it has become even more important to the locals as other amenities have been lost to the modern way of living, gratefully this facility is flourishing. The Greyhound has two bars – a Public and Lounge bar both with real log fires offering a good ‘olde world’ atmosphere and a separate Pool Room.
We are extremely proud that after only eighteen months of managing The Greyhound, our regulars and a panel from South Norfolk District Council have awarded us with the ‘The Community Pub of the Year’ title for 2011; this has been a fantastic accolade to achieve and is a huge boost to our efforts to not only provide a vital amenity to our village but also to actively support and host events for the community.
Here at The Greyhound we are one of the smallest ‘Freehouses’ in Norfolk to have five draught real ales on offer including Adams Bitter, Shepherds Neame, Fuller’s London Pride, Black Sheep and Woodfordes Champion Ale – We also have several guest beers on offer to our customers, as well as a fine selection of Ciders, Wines, Spirits and Soft Drinks.
We are a child and dog friendly pub (As long as they are well behaved!) We have recently revamped our children’s outdoor play area which is situated opposite our 3 ½ acre paddock which is used for a variety of other uses including the Annual Village Festival, 1940’s themed events, tractor runs, clay shooting, young farmer’s shindigs, classic vehicle meetings and motor bike gatherings.
