Greyhound named as the UK’s ‘One to Watch’

The Greyhound pub and restaurant in Beaconsfield has been named as the ‘One to Watch’ in the UK’s prestigious Top 50 Gastropubs awards.

Announced in early April, the pub and restaurant was highlighted as the most promising establishment in the UK.

Voted by industry peers, the awards recognise the best Gastropubs from across the country. 

Opened by the husband and wife team of Daniel Crump and Margriet Vandezande-Crump in December 2019, the pub and restaurant has only traded for seven months due to the pandemic. 

Based in a 17th century Grade II listed old Coaching Inn, it offers guests a modern take on British classics, served in a dining room created with comfort in mind. It also offers beers and ales from local breweries.

The husband and wife team have worked in some of the UK’s most established restaurants, such as Michelin starred Petrus in Knightsbridge, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Chelsea, Trinity in Clapham, and also The Oxford Blue, Old Windsor.

Crump said: “We are incredibly proud to have won this award after being open for such a short space of time. 

“The Top 50 Gastropub awards are incredibly prestigious and winning the ‘One to Watch’ really highlights the efforts of the whole team over the course of a year nobody would ever have imagined.”

“We are delighted to have picked this award up and hope we can kick on and keep improving. We’ve always said, we want to create something our local area can be proud of. We hope this is the first step on that journey.”

Vandezande-Crump added: “We are so pleased to have won this award. It’s safe to say that the last year has been tough on so many levels but this award is testament to what we’ve been able to achieve alongside our community. 

“Ever since we opened, we’ve been blown away by the support of our guests. We are happy we can now celebrate this award with them as we re-opened on 14th April.”
