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.


The Greyhound is NOW OPEN AGAIN, serving both food and drink. We are welcoming drinkers and diners back inside the pub, as well as in to our marquee in the rear courtyard. We have reorganised the layout of tables inside the pub and in the marquee to ensure that you can comfortably social distance while you dine or drink with us, and we are taking bookings


To book a table to eat (Tuesday to Sunday) please call us on 01379 898003. You’ll enjoy table service inside (no standing at the bar at the moment we’re afraid). If you are drinking outside in our marquee then please email your drinks order to houndbar@hotmail.com on arrival. 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 the marquee or to takeaway) you’ll need to order online or use our App (see links below).


Our delicious wood-fired pizzas are available to takeaway 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 Sunday with ordering from 4pm to 9pm (Tuesday to Saturday), and from 4pm to 8pm (Sundays). We deliver our pizzas on Wednesday evenings to our delivery area. 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 see here for our MENU.

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.

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.
