The Greyhound is a traditional double fronted pub located in the idyllic village of Colton just outside the bustling town of Rugeley, Staffordshire. Colton is an affluent village and the pub itself is surrounded by an abundance of chimney pots. The pub has built and excellent reputation amongst the local community and is supported all year round.

Pub Layout

The Greyhound oozes charm with its quaint and relaxed feel.  On entering the pub you are greeted with a central bar which services both the lounge area and the main bar. Both areas have a relaxed feel with an eclectic mix of both fixed and loose seating, the pub is a good condition throughout. The ladies and gents toilets are located to the rear of the building and are decorated to a high standard. The pub has a newly installed high spec catering kitchen, although compact it has modern equipment and a smoker. The beer garden to the front of the pub is a fantastic addition with around 60 covers. There is scope to provide additional cover with an external shelter allowing customers to enjoy alfresco dining in the winter months. There is 12 car parking spaces to the front of the building although many locals usually walk to and from the pub.

The Greyhound is a bustling village pub, which is well supported.  There is a well established premium range of drinks with a vast range of spirits, lagers and cask ale. The pub boasts six cask pumps and is popular with real ale drinkers in the area. The food has previously been very successful with an American smoke house offer along with Sunday lunches, although the new licensee may wish to relaunch the offer with a more traditional style food offer. There is no sky sports at present however it would be a welcomed addition instating a pay for view sports channel for local customers to enjoy. The pub hosts both open mic nights and quiz nights which are also popular along with an opportunity to develop the entertainment programme with community events in the fantastic beer garden.
