A Brief History Of The Greyhound
Opening around 1841 The Greyhound proved a popular place to drink, eat and be merry. The Greyhound was originally run by a Mr Robert Wilkinson, who was believed to challenge anyone to contradict “that there was no better house in the town, wether large or small, as far as management and conduct were concerned”. This earned the pub a reputation of an orderly and well conducted house.
As the century went on, and the railway opened from Bury St Edmunds to Sudbury, in 1865 business in the pub sky rocketed. Being only sixty yards from the station (now Bury Bowl and Pot Black) it proved a popular venue for, not only the locals, but for people visiting the town.
There have been many stories about the pub and there is so much history it would take forever to write it up. Why not ask a member of staff about the ghost!
