A warm welcome from

The Greyhound Botesdale

The Greyhound has stood in the heart of the village of Botesdale since the 1400s when it was used as a coaching Inn and through the years has been a focus of community life.

Since 2004 the pub has been owned by Chris and Mori-Fi Burnard who have continued to evolve it to make the Greyhound an interesting and welcoming pub serving a range of local ales, over 20 premium gins, craft lager and authentic homemade pizza from the wood fired pizza oven.


We are delighted to announce that The Greyhound will re-open to customers on Sunday 5th July.

We’re welcoming you back into our marquee at the rear of the pub in the first instance. Here you will be able to enjoy The Greyhound in its summer home – under canvas. It is our intention to make the most of the summer weather and fresh air as we settle back in to pub life and being open again. It’s The Hound…. Al Fresco.

We’re not taking bookings for our tables at the moment, please just turn up. To order your drinks you’ll need to email us with your order to houndbar@hotmail.com. When it’s ready we’ll bring your order to our Collection Point outside where you will need to pay for your drinks by card (no cash please). To order your pizza or food (to eat in or to takeaway) you’ll need to use our App (see below).


Our delicious wood-fired pizzas are available for collection six nights a week, and for delivery within a specified area on Wednesdays. Please click HERE for the full area that we can deliver to.


To place an order, please download the Greyhound App for iPhone or Android, or order online (see buttons below). You will find our menu on the App. We serve pizzas from Tuesday to Saturday with ordering from 4pm to 9pm, and on Sundays from 4pm to 8pm. We are currently only delivering our pizzas on Wednesday evenings. Please note that orders can only be placed between these times and we can only accept orders via our App or online, so please do not phone. Payment is made in advance via the App only please – to minimise contact. 

When you place your order, you will receive a message letting you know approximately how long it will be until your order is ready for collection (or when it will be delivered). Please note that at very busy times your order may not be accepted immediately as we monitor our order volumes carefully. If this happens, please try again later. Please do bear with us and be patient when ordering for delivery as we cook all our pizzas fresh to order and we are covering a rural area. We are therefore not able to provide an instant service.

There is a 50p transaction fee on all orders which is paid to the online service provider along with a £2.50 delivery charge levied by us to cover our costs when we are delivering.

Please click below to download our App or to order online.

We are all really looking forward to welcoming you back to The Greyhound this summer. We’re good to go with lots of measures in place to help keep you safe on your visit – including contactless ordering and payment, socially distanced tables, a one way system and enhanced cleaning regimes. Please help us to ensure that everyone can enjoy a safe and comfortable visit by keeping a social distance and following government guidelines.


Wood Fired Pizza

(Please note that currently we are only serving our takeaway pizza menu that you can find in our App).

The focus of the food is house pizzas with a build your own option from a wide range of meats, fish and vegetable toppings to create your own unique pizza.
We also cook FLAT IRON STEAKS in our wood fired oven, sourced from Rolfes of Walsham le Willows, along with pasta, salads and side dishes.

The pizza oven has been built by Chris who makes fresh dough daily to Mori-Fi’s recipe which when fired with wood gives a thin crispy base as tasty as the Italian original.
