I have heard a rumour that, after refurbishment, the Greyhound is to be run by a celebrity chef from ready steady cook. Anyone know about this?

There is lots to record now Graz but the garage will not "move" as such, it is to be a cottage style home for family. (This garage was once a coach house) There is already a gate in place to attach it to the current property. I am still going through the deeds, it is hugely complicated by groups of names that formed as investors for its early days. Findings include a modern time too, many remember it was used by the Kersall Rugby Club, now it is found Aldemere FC also called it home.

Divad, the garage, once converted, will also 'move' to become part of the neighbouring property. A good story for the A-Z in years to come!

I have visited Chatham House and met up with the owner of the hotel. All the stories and rumours are just that, no decision has been made as to the future of the hotel. Presently it is being gutted and brought back to a sound building as previous owners did nothing. The roof was priority as rain was ruining all the floors and woodwork. False ceilings and floors are being removed with doors and windows now being exposed for the first time in years. There is evidence of a fire that was never corrected and all the work is being carried out by local tradesmen with, where ever possible, local suppliers of materials. Certain is that this will not be returned to a pub or hotel of any kind. Once completed this is going to be a credit to the owner and the Village.

Some movment about the Greyhound in that the garage is to become a Granny flat. Good idea to make use of the place.

The police just did a check and because the tenants didn't have their license on the premises they had to close early. No fighting someone has obviously been giving you duff information!

Pete,
I was in on Sat and was told that there was trouble and they had called the police. I would assume that is why they arrived with the two's and blues on.

There wasn't a fight in The Village /Greyhound the other night. The police said as newly opened premesis they had to shut earlier...sounds odd to me...but there was no fight. I was in there.

Yes Fighting as usual, I certainly would not have put a pool table in there at this early stage. They should have waited until they got to know who they wanted in and who not. Staff are very pleasant, I understand that the food will be on in two weeks.

We have combined Italian, Chinese, Mexican, and Indian restaurants already - they are called English pubs.

Thai sounds great, all I was saying that 2 kitchens means 2 different business' working together. This could be any style of food brought to the same table to satisfy different tastes.

How can another Chinese restaurant contribute to a 'curry mile'? If it was a proposed Indian restaurant then fair enough.

I agree with Lee. We have more than enough chinese and curry places. A thai place would be great. I also cant think of a worse idea than a combined chinese and indian resaurant.

Not another Chinese or Indian in Urmston. It'll be the curry mile soon.

Bring on the Thai. I'd eat there every night!! yum yum

I love both so let's have a Chindian restaurant.

Likewise, I can't stand Chinese food so I wouldn't go for an Indian to a place like that.
Re: Greyhound Restaurant
Reply posted by Steak ... dated:11 September 2008
A lot of people do not like the smell of indian food so it would put them off going for a chinese.

My only concern with places like that goes back to the saying "jack of all trades, master of none".

Frank, Your idea about turning The Greyhound into an Indian/Chinese restaurant is spot on. I went to a place in Didsbury (can't remember the name) about three years ago and it was excellent. It was strange seeing Chinese and Indian waiters in the same restaurant. You could pick n' mix from the menu and the only thing missing was a bit of Italian.

I think it would be a good idea to have it as a Indian & Chinese Restaurant, so if your out for the night & someone always asks, shall we go for a meal? What do you fancy an Indian or a Chinese?
Problem solved! You can all sit a the same table with your diffrent types of meals.

Good Luck with the new business, agreed so much better than the building standing empty.

I'm informed that there's 6 pubs closing per week in the UK........

It is good to hear it may re-open no matter what the flavour of restaurant. Any such building will benefit from use against standing empty.

The greyhound is to be a pub downstairs and a Chinese upstairs...I met the family this weekend, they were clearing up the outside of the building.
