A warm welcome
LOCAL NOTICE - ROAD CLOSURE
Please be aware of the closure of High Street north of Greyhound Inn, Sydling St Nicholas until Friday 13 April, 2018.
We are OPEN AS USUAL during the current works, however if you are arriving by car from the direction of Cerne Abbas or Yeovil access to us is restricted, you can get to us either down the narrow road opposite Long Ash Service Station on the A37 or under the viaduct at Grimstone. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!
A great meal and a great sleep... local food and proper pillows, that's what we do at the Greyhound. It's a centuries old coaching inn set in an ancient Thomas Hardy village so pretty it takes your breath away.
Think of soft, rounded chalk hills, watercress farms, thatched cottages and a trout stream running through it. Add in crisp white sheets, fluffy towels, free wi-fi everywhere and officially the best pub food in Dorset (two Good Pub Guide Awards) and you get the perfect English pub with rooms.
And all in Dorset's loveliest village. This is 'real' England. Sydling St Nicholas is recorded in William the Conqueror's Domesday Book written in 1086. A collection of pastel painted houses built from flint and stone, it lies in a valley a mile off the main A37 Dorchester to Yeovil road and every route in to our village is chocolate box pretty.
There are no street lights so the night sky is carbon black, walk off dinner literally under moonlight or take the torch from your bedroom.
