Stayed here for 4 nights while working away and was thoroughly impressed, my room was cracking with (what looked like?) one off/up cycled pieces of furniture, comfy bed and quite possibly the most powerful and hot shower ever built! Over in the bar and restaurant the landlord was very accommodating with our early breakfast requests, my Labrador was made to... More

We spent two nights in Dorset and wish we'd spent both of them at the Greyhound! The staff were attentive, organised and professional. Our room was beautifully appointed, with modern fittings, excellent TV and comfortable furniture. We were in a separate building across from the main hotel building which meant that we had a very relaxed and peaceful night's sleep.... More

An excellent find! This has restored my lost faith in B&B's. We stayed for two nights and couldn't find fault with this English gem. Clean & comfy rooms, exceptional and delicious food, charming staff, great value for money, lovely walks from the door, very dog freiendly. Manager Matthew is a star... and so are his staff. They couldn't do enough... More

My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous impromptu supper here last night. The staff were all very friendly and efficient, and despite it being busy very calm. The food was exceptional, not your usual pub grub but of high standard restaurant quality. I highly recommend a visit.

Stayed here for a quick night away with the missus, got the Bobby Brown suite which was large and comfy good selection of beers and wines and dinner was great, well cooked no fuss pub food, couldn't fault breakfast either. Matthew the GM and Adam the Head Chef both are a credit to the establishment.

The Greyhound Inn is some distance from Dorchester but well worth a visit. We had lunch there last week. The food was excellent as was the local beer and the wine. Very pleasant and friendly staff and we shall certainly return there in the future.

Had a delightful lunch. Mussels followed by faggots (first time ever) and my wife had a salad - chicken with avacado etc - also faggots for the main course. £12.95 for two courses excellent value. The welcome was warm and very friendly and the service exemplary. Well worth a visit.
