About The Greyhound Inn at Sydling St Nicholas

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 then double it and you get Sydling St Nicholas. 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. We don't call it a boutique pub with rooms but others have so we're not complaining.

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.
