Sophisticated Menu Enjoyed a dinner here (pre-booked) on a Saturday night. Due to Covid restrictions, the capacity of the restaurant was reduced but the menu, especially the daily specials, was still extensive and exciting. The staff were friendly and polite and the food was brilliant. There is a large patio/terrace area outside at the front. We really enjoyed ourselves. I imagine that under 'normal conditions', this place must be absolutely jumping with diners wanting to eat here and that the small car-park out front could be tricky to navigate.

Hidden gem We were told about this place on a visit to maiden Newton , very professional staff fully covid prepared, attentive and polite . My starter off the specials board was gorgeous and the other half’s pate was just as nice . The mains of ribeye steak with garlic butter and fries was cooked to perfection and the other half’s home made faggots with mash and cabbage was demolished as was the starters , we finished off with ice cream and a fruit crumble with vanilla custard 😋 this place is a hidden gem

Great pub! Stopped here for a drink at lunchtime. Sadly the restaurant was closed but the gentleman at the bar was very friendly, as was the only local present, so we spent a very enjoyable hour there. Highly recommended.

Excellent service and delicious food I visited the Greyhound last week with my partner and my parents for lunch. The pub itself is beautifully decorated.The restaurant was cosy and inviting. The level of service was excellent, the staff were knowledgeable, attentive and displayed a good awareness of COVID safety. There was a standard reduced menu, but there were a large number of specials available on the board. Every meal was generously proportioned and delicious. We had a variety of starters and everybody had the lasagne for main. Very impressed with this restaurant and will definitely be coming again.

Fabulous in every respect Just a one night stay with breakfast and evening meal. Outstanding dinner of calves liver, which isn't easy to get right. Breakfast was of the, "anything you like variety". Staff service was outstanding, always prepared to engage and listen, with passion shown for the business. Value for this stay was excellent. It was a busy weekend all over the region, but unlike some chain hotels that double their prices at these times, The Greyhound charges the same regardless. Count yourself lucky if you can get in here.

Overnight stay & takeaway breakfast Had the pleasure of staying at The Greyhound recently and cannot recommend enough, me and my colleague were due to checkout before breakfast service, the very kind member of management offered to have a takeaway breakfast ready for collection in the morning when we checked out, couldn't have gone further to assist us, we were both surprised by this gesture and will definitely return. Not to mention the fantastically kept selection of real ale on the bar.

Absolutely 1st Class We enjoyed two fantastic meals at the Greyhound whilst on a family holiday in Dorset. First visit was for Sunday lunch and second visit was our "last supper" before leaving for home. Exemplary service, welcoming, friendly and nothing too much trouble for the team. Varied menu with something for everyone. Gorgeous well cooked food which was beautifully presented. Our group of 8 were unanimous is agreeing it was pretty much faultless. We really appreciated the thought and care regarding hygiene and social distancing given Covid restrictions, but never felt this detracted from us enjoying our first meal together since lockdown. Fantastic!

2 great evening meals We ate here twice during the week we were in Dorset. Enjoyed our first meal so much we cancelled our other booking and re-booked at the Greyhound for later in the week. Both meals were delicious. Steak, frites and salad and Purbeck ice cream the first time and Thai green curry with prawns and chicken pie the second time. Absolutely no complaints! Cheerful, friendly service and tables perfectly socially distanced. And a nice post-meal walk afterwards around the perfect village that is sydling st Nicholas. We will return!
