The Greyhound, a new pub and restaurant serving modern British cuisine, will be opening in Beaconsfield – headed up by two former Gordon Ramsay front-of-house staff. Owners Daniel Crump and Margriet Vandezande-Crump, will open the doors to the pub and restaurant in early December, aiming to offer guests a place they can enjoy fine food, as well a pint or a glass wine.
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.
The pub and restaurant will offer guests a modern take on British classics, served in a dining room created with comfort in mind. It will also offer beers and ales from local breweries.
Based in a Grade II listed old Coaching Inn, it has been sympathetically redesigned, turning the 17th century building into a modern pub and restaurant – paying homage to its historic past.
Working with designer Ian Brice, the interior of the venue has been renovated, restoring many of its original features, as well as incorporating modern design ideas.
Daniel Crump, who was also a finalist in the Gold Service Scholarship in 2013, said: “We are really excited about our new venture. We have both had amazing careers to date and have worked with some incredible people over the years. We are looking forward to bringing the best of what we’ve picked up to our own place.
“Having started my career as a kitchen porter, I sometimes have to pinch myself when I realise what we are doing now. It goes to show how our industry can open so many doors for so many people.”
“It’s a dream come true and an incredibly proud moment for us both. The hard work starts now.”
Margriet Vandezande-Crump, added: “We are so pleased to be launching The Greyhound. We’re hoping the pub and restaurant will give people a place they can come to enjoy themselves and be comfortable, whether it’s for a delicious meal or for a quick drink. That’s why we have developed menus which give people lots of food options, as well as a wine list which is accessible to all.
“Beaconsfield is such an incredible place. The area has a special charm which we immediately fell for when we first visited.”
