The pub is included here for its stunning four bay Victorian bar back fitting – the left bay has a panel with ‘The Greyhound’ in gold mosaic and a painting of a greyhound in a roundel; 2nd bay has beveled mirror panels and at the top a mirror panel depicting grapes and acanthus leaves with a rose in the centre; 3rd bay is similar to the 2nd one but wider; and 4th bay is separate (moved?) with an oblong panel of a greyhound. There are some ornate pillars holding up the shelves.

Three-storey grand Victorian pub with a greyhound and fleur-de-lys in stone relief at the top. The ground floor is covered in brown tiles and above is a fascia of cream tiles with the wording “Fine Ales Charrington’s And Stout’ on Peckham Hill Street side; The Greyhound’ above the corner door; and ‘Ales Charrington Stout’ on the Peckham High Street side.

Inside it is one open plan room having lost partitions many years ago – one disused door has ‘The Greyhound’ in a leaded panel above. The bar counter is a canted inter-war one with a panelled front painted grey with a wooden top. The vestibule is modern.
