We only ate here, after a long walk from Swanage with a dog the staff were very welcoming and the food was of a proper gastro-pub quality. Highly recommended for a meal. The burger was particularly good.

We have stayed at the Greyhound many times but this time it seems to have been uplifted. Matt and the staff were excellent, nothing was too much. The room was spotless and comfortable. Great breakfast and restaurant. We will be back in April.

A superb weekend break before heading back to work for 2016... Matt and his team were beyond hospitable. The pub was all that you want in a country pub, great beer and even better food. The accommodation was so nice and elegantly furnished. An exceptional stay.

We headed out from Dorchester to the Greyhound Inn on New Years day to have a suburb lunch. It is slightly off the beaten track, but the drive is worth the experience The décor and whole ambiance of the pub is beautiful, the staff friendly and helpful. We did have the foresight to book and just as well as it... More

Whenever I visit the Dorchester area, this is where I like to eat. Today, New Year's Day, four of us had a truly excellent, four hour lunch. We were not rushed in any way, the Manager and staff were friendly and efficient even though it was busy.and the food and wine delicious. What a way to start 2016.

Chosen as it was convenient from Ringwood and Exeter for a family lunch. Luckily we had booked and arrived on time, shortly afterwards, it was standing room only. Very popular it seems. Excellent choice of lunch menu. We were not rushed, excellent food all at a reasonable price. Would visit again.

I chose this pub/restaurant as it had been recommended by a friend who travels from Bournemouth to eat here. I had organised a family lunch and this was fairly central for us all. The pub is tastefully decorated throughout, including the toilets! The staff were welcoming and friendly. The menu was very good - a wide range to cover a... More

Stayed here for one night with my partner for a birthday get away. She had a candle in her desert and a threat by the fantastic staff to sing her happy birthday! We had an evening meal in the pub and stayed the night in the guest lodge, which is situated across the car park from the main property. This... More
