We returned to the Greyhound for only one night and wished that it was a week. Teresa and Wayne are doing a great job with the B&B as well as the pub/restaurant. Chef Scott prepared a fabulous meal for us of smoked haddock for my wife and wild mushroom rissotto for me. We are returning for lunch this week. Don't... More

Fantastic food. Great ambience. Friendly staff. The food here is to die for. We celebrated our little boys birthday and the staff was very nice. Highly recommend. Don't forget to take a walk with very picturesque stream flowing right behind!

I cycled through this lovely village and stopped here for lunch. Great omelette and friendly staff, with a sunny picnic table to top it all off. I had the misfortune to leave my money and ID card here but they called me and sent it back within 48 hours. Great stuff.

A nice inn in a small village in Dorset.. Would def recommend staying here to anyone looking for a place to stay in and around Weymouth. Cute little villages also nearby, with some very picturesque country lanes to drive down as you navigate your way around the area. The Inn itself was well appointed and the managers very friendly and... More

Went several times a few years ago and stopped because of declining standards. Tried again for Sunday lunch. Bills itself as the 'best pub food in Dorset'. It isn't. Starters OK, not more. Roast beef tough over cooked and flavourless, yorkshire pudding huge dark brown edifice of cardboard, Cold. Obviously made a long while earler. Potatoes rock hard, appeared to... More

We had a great lunch here - fish and chips twice followed by an Eton Mess for two to share. Food beautifully presented and tasted good too. Service with a smile and biscuits for our puppy. We have been several times when on holiday and this has always been a reliably good place to come.

Came upon the Greyhound by chance, sadly it was closed that evening but decided to go back with friends the following day. Wonderful food, well worth the trip back. Would go again. The slow roast belly pork was wonderful!
