Hair of the Dog-The Greyhound
Spring has arrived and the lockdown restrictions are starting to ease, meaning the pubs are now serving that cold pint we've all been waiting for, just in time for the Summer.
To make the Summer of 2021 a bit more exciting, The Greyhound and Fable & King have decided to partner up and serve out some discounts when ordering a drink or T-shirt.
The Exciting Part
If you order from Fable & King, and enter 'HAIROFTHEDOG' at the checkout you will not only receive a 15% discount on your item but also 15% off your total order at The Greyhound, Sydenham.
Due to the easing of COVID restrictions, we thought that this would be a great opportunity to get people out and reunited with friends and family over a pub lunch. To claim your discount, show the coupon code on your receipt to a member of staff for them to take 15% off your total bill.
The Greyhound pub was refurbished and re-opened back in February 2018 as a stylish, comfortable pub with a strong focus on high-quality food and drinks.
The Greyhound site has had a long history in Sydenham, being around for over 300 years. They're proud that the new management has given the local community a place to eat, drink, meet friends and enjoy relaxed days and nights out in a space that is warm, comfortable, and full of personality.
They're dog-friendly as long as your dog is friendly and welcomes children, with plenty of high chairs and changing facilities available.
The Greyhound was also voted Sydenham's favourite pub of 2019
If you have read this far and wanted to learn some pub trivia to impress your friends at the pub while you sip a refreshing drink, the term 'Hair of the dog' comes from an old belief that someone bitten by a rabid dog could be cured of rabies by taking a potion containing some of the dog's hair. The correlation suggests that, although alcohol may be to blame for the hangover (as the dog is for the attack), a smaller portion of the same will, paradoxically, act as a cure. We do want to add, there is no scientific evidence that the cure for either a hangover or rabies actually works.
