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 he 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.


Wood Fired Pizza

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.
There are also pasta, salads and side dishes available.

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.

HOG ROLLS are now being served on SUNDAY’S 12-6pm , with pork slow cooked over night in our wood fired oven.
