The Greyhound

A local, a restaurant, a B&B

WELCOME

THE GREYHOUND

Welcome

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!
DOGS ARE VERY WELCOME

Rooms

The six bedrooms in our old coaching block across the car park are of differing size but include two big enough for family rooms.
