The Greyhound, Diss, marks start of new chapter following refurb

More news, no ads


The new owner of a beloved Diss pub has marked the start of a “new chapter”, following a brand new refurb.

The Greyhound, in St Nicholas Street, has introduced TV sports, darts, pool and live entertainment following a refurbishment job which saw it closed for several months.

There is a new face at the helm, too. Ruidi Cooke promised the new look of the town centre pub would make it a punter’s favourite over the summer.

Mr Cooke said: “This is such an historic pub and it has served Diss for hundreds of years. I am excited to be part of its next chapter.

“This latest refurb means it is even more inviting and people want to stay for longer.

“The new décor and seating are all about making your visit comfy and relaxing.

“You can come in to watch a match or just have a drink and a chat, that’s the beauty of this pub – it is here for everyone.

“It’s beer garden season and we have really made the most of our outside space with new benches so there is plenty of seating to make the most of the summer.”

Inside, clever use of big screens and audio means this classic two-room pub can have entertainment, sports or multiple activities taking place simultaneously.

The drinks menu has been extended so customers can enjoy a pint of ale, chilled lager, cool cocktail or explore different wines and spirits.

Mr Cooke added: “We have something for everyone, whatever the day, night or occasion to enjoy with friends, family and neighbours.

“There is a great atmosphere here, we have a brilliant range of drinks, great service, sports and entertainment and it’s all really good value.

Records show that The Greyhound was an inn dating back to the 15th century, possibly known as the Pilgrim’s Inn, and it is thought the current building dates from the 17th century.
