Email this pub Welcome to the Greyhound Inn at Staple Fitzpaine near Taunton.

The creeper-clad Greyhound Inn stands in the tucked-away village of Staple Fitzpaine and has been extended over the years into a series of rambling, connecting rooms providing a rustic mix of flagstone floors, old timbers and natural stone walls.

A true haven for leisure seekers but within easy reach of Taunton (5miles) and a 10 minute drive from the M5 (J25)to appeal to the business visitor.

Our friendly reception staff will provide you with details of all the local amenities, including sports and entertainment.
