The Greyhound pub in Friar Gate, Derby re-opens tonight.

I have created an interactive 360 degree high resolution photograph in front of this pub so you can see exactly where it is located on Friargate and what it looks like, click the link and then use the mouse to look around and zoom in :

The Greyhound dates back to 1734 and is at the heart of the "Derby Mile" pub crawl of which several pubs have been lost over recent years. Four years ago, it closed after falling victim to the recession, which has shaken the pub trade.
The pub will be opened by Dino and Pete from Ram FM at 8:30pm Thursday 20th May 2010, why not go along and show support for this newly reopend pub.

The Greyhound pub is located at 76 Friar Gate, Derby DE1 1FN.
You can see how the Greyhound looked in 2008 when the Google Streetview car captured it by clicking my link below :

  1. Can anyone tell me the phone number for this pub? Google only shows their old number (01332 242460) and directory enquires doesn't even have them listed. HELP!

  2. Hi,

    I love the branding of your Pub and all the artwork hanging up inside it!

    Can you give me the name of the artist?

  3. Hi, Just google it !
    And I found that the artwork for the greyhound pub Derby is by artist Martin Hyde. See more of it here :

    Hope this helps.
