Great choice of menu for lunch. Both wife & I had a tasty meal. Not cheap but seems to be the norm these days. Had a friendly atmosphere. Dogs welcomed and there is a jar of dog biscuits of free treats. Why can't all pubs be like this. Will come back.

Quite a varied menu and obviously popular because of its setting at the foot of Corfe Castle but there was just something a bit lacking in the food itself, hence the title of this review.

We discovered this pub yesterday after a long walk and arrived starving hungry. On Saturday at about 2pm, the place was packed but we found a table in a cozy back room. The menu was varied and much more "gastro" than pub grub. The veggie options were superb and the lunch/light bite menu had something for everyone. Burgers were seved on wooden boards with salad and chunky chips, soup was served in nice little pots with lids and accompanied by home made bread. Interesting choices of "mash" with various vegetables and flavours added to the difficulty choosing just one thing from the menu. The menu was reasonably priced (under a tenner for most lunch options).
Staff were poite and helpful even though they were rushed off their feet.
I'd definitely go again.

Visited the Greyhound again for their sausage and cider festival. Behind the bar was a well presented and polite woman who had been there for some time and two youths with untidy hair and beards. Unfortunately I was served by one of the latter. Taking an order for three sausages, mash and a pint of cider seemed beyond his capability but he eventually dealt with the order with help from the woman. He did say "it is not your fault mate" to me.

£11 was rather expensive for three sausages and mash but it was served quickly and tasted pleasant with the cider. The pub is a historic building in an excellent location which is why they are able to get away with high charges and poor service. There is little competition nearby but by all accounts the Castle Inn about half a mile down the road is better.

Nice pub with excellent food. The fish and chips really are something else. Same owner as the Bankes Arms Hotel.
