Greyhound Inn

Location: Lydney

Tuthill Street

Postcode: GL15 5PA

The Greyhound Inn was one of several Lydney pubs that were once owned or leased by the Wickwar Brewery.

Arnold Perrett & Co. Ltd also supplied beer to the Foresters Arms, Fleece Inn, Queens Head, Severn View and White Horse.

It seems that the Wickwar Brewery purchased the Greyhound in 1937 from Frederick Hathaway, a local wine & spirit merchant.

The inventory of sale described “all those two several messuages or dwelling houses with the gardens and all outbuildings and appurtenances thereunto belonging and adjoining .. the Inn and premises on the east thereof.. known as Numbers 4 and 6 Tuthill Street”.

The Greyhound was tied to Whitbread from the mid 1960’s to the mid 1990’s.

It is still trading.
