The greetings are splendid , variety of food great but not complicated albeit well presented. We will return and also try the other three Dorset hostelrys owned by this small group. I wish it was my local , nevertheless the journey is a pleasant experience through lumpy Dorset

A friend and I visited The Greyhound for lunch today. We visit somewhere different each month or so, today's meal was excellent surpassing all expectations. We were greeted on entering and offered a table either in the bar or restaurant area. After much deliberation we chose chicken supreme and the stuffed peppers from the menu although some tempting specials were... More

Chose this village Pub for my Birthday treat with my Wife and Daughter. Being a Monday thought it would be a bit quiet without much atmosphere, decided to book just in case, so glad I did. My booking was taken by Fred, When we arrived he introduced himself, took our orders for drinks, then showed us to our table. First... More

We wanted somewhere to go to celebrate my having got a job, so chose this pub as we had been for a drink there before, but not for a meal. It is in a lovely Dorset village and we were warmly welcomed. It was very busy but we did not have to wait very long for our delicious wild boar... More

I think we drank more than we ate but it was delicious. Good wine list, port and pudding wines excellent and attentive service by a young and friendly staff. Spotless loos - what more could one ask for to celebrate a special occasion. This restaurant has had a varied reputation in the past. It is now on a high. Please... More

Visited with 3 friends one Saturday afternoon having walked from Cerne Abbas. 2 friends shared a meal - it came on separate plates and satisfied both of them. I asked friends to see if there was a ploughmans. It came. More than enough. Beautifully presented. Manager(?) came over and felt I didn't have enough bread and sent staff out with... More

Great place, nicely located, feels like the middle of nowhere, but is just minutes from main road. Friendly welcome, comfy and clean room, went across to the inn for dinner, nicely varied menu. Food was very high quality, well presented and not silly priced. All staff were friendly and professional, surroundings comfortable and you were not rushed. Sleep quality was... More

Just had the fish and chips here and they were wonderful, well worth the money. This is our second visit here and we we're not disappointed. The Greyhound has a lovely atmosphere and the staff are friendly and attentive. Dogs are also welcome here which is a bonus. Won't be long before we visit again.

What a gem! The Greyhound is a small pub-restaurant with a few rooms, and is run brilliantly. All members of staff were obliging, competent and cheerful, obviously well-selected and trained. The pub and bed-room building are quite cottage-y in style, but are in excellent order, clean, good décor, the plumbing works, our bed was large and comfortable. Even in hot... More

The Greyhound has got a lot going for it and we spent a lovely, very chilled weekend here. Two rooms, we stayed as two couples with our doggies. The pub is truly a mix of being a local pub, a very cosy bed and breakfast and a lovely restaurant. The village is lovely and dogs can have a good run... More
