Fabulous Sunday lunch for 5 of us. Friendly, welcoming. Excellent menu at reasonable prices. Spacious relaxing dining room with nice large tables. Could hear each other talking which can be a problem at some places. Perfect Sunday afternoon.

Stayed here recently for 2 nights. Room was spacious and comfortable, but it was a chilly evening and we could not turn on the heating as it is landlord controlled. Also the WiFi was non existent in the room which meant difficult to stay in touch. Also not soundproofed and were awoken at 6a.m. both mornings by the people in... More

Myself & my family had an overnight stay at the Greyhound. We booked two rooms, both beautifully decorated & spotlessly clean. The little touches like the wellies were so thoughtful & came in handy for a lovely walk through what must be Dorset's prettiest village. We had our evening meal in the restaurant & it was cooked to perfection. The... More

We couldn't fault the welcome and service we received at The Greyhound. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room in a block opposite the pub was very comfortable as was the bed (very important to me with back and shoulder problems). The cooked breakfast was delicious and although there was no menu on the table chef was happy to rustle... More

We were visiting Dorchester to meet our sons girlfriend, and had booked into The Greyhound for a meal. The food was amazing, my hubby and I had the steak whilst my our son had the duck and none of it could be faulted, the staff were very hard working and the service was excellent. We would definitely visit here again.

Our room was extremely clean and comfortable and the staff very welcoming and accommodating. Great breakfast too. We only stayed one night and attended a family dinner elsewhere but the specials board looked great and we would definitely like to return and have dinner next time.

Hi Colin B Thank you for your recent review. As you saw first hand, we do get busy, however, we will always accommodate where we can. Being a country village pub, we are extremely popular with dogs.... you will always find a water bowl outside, and more importantly, doggy treats behind the bar! Matt & Team More

The Inn is nicely situated in a romantic and down to earth scenery with ample things to do around in the beautiful nature. Rooms are very nice and cosy. Again I cannot emphasise enough how well run this... More
