I'm very sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the portion sizes of the vegetables. As a general rule we usually find that the amount of veg is plenty for the Sunday roasts. However this was obviously not the case with your party and...More

Fabulous roast definitely the best in Dorset - the kids are every morsel. Great choice of roast meat and the potatoes were to die for. Great wine choice and my husband said the real ale was good too. Loved it we will be back soon...More

The Greyhound has been a lovely village pub for many years, offering great food to its locals and visitors alike. In recent times the pub has gone through a complete renovation and refurbishment program, bring a well-loved pub back to its former glory, but with a modern contemporary feel. It offers a large bar area, popular with the locals with varied seating options to eat or socialise. In addition, there is a beautiful garden area, with secluded areas for private dining Alfresco when the weather allows. Our Dining room provides a warm welcome to our guests, with a roaring fire in the winter, where you can relax and enjoy a delightful meal. The dining room is modern and serves locally sourced, freshly prepared dishes from 12 – 2.30 and again between 6pm – 9pm every day; and if the weather’s good our garden is the ideal place to spend a few hours or more! Our menu is updated on a regular basis to reflect the change in seasons and to make the best use of what resources are on offer to us. In addition, we serve a core menu of ‘Pub Classics’ and signature dishes, so if you know what you like, your favourite is likely to be there. Our specials board is updated daily, but be quick if you see something you like. It may sell out quickly. Our Sunday Roast is extremely popular and we take bookings for 12pm through until 5pm. All of our meat is supplied by from the best quality butchers, sourced locally from in and around Dorset. The Greyhound has five guest bedrooms, which can be configured for your ease and booked as doubles, twins or even as a family suite, all with luxury en-suite bathrooms (Some have a Bath) and all have private lounges for our guests’ comfort. If you want a branded mass-market hotel, then we are not for you; if you want a high quality stay, with a warm welcome and a personal touch, you have found the right place.
