The village of Sydling St Nicholas is pickled in aspic and it feels like stepping back in time. The Greyhound Inn mirrors aspects of the period with its natural decor and the well in the restaurant floor (don't worry - its glassed over!) the rooms in the old stable block across the car park are exceedingly comfortable and breakfast is...

First visit. Chose this inn as a base to explore beautiful Dorset. Matthew and all the staff were very helpful and friendly. The food is very good with a large choice. Very comfortable rooms ( we were in Nellie). Wellies are supplied for walkers. Very pleasant evenings in the lounge bar chatting to the locals and their well behaved dogs....

A late booking but staff couldn't have been more accommodating. The food was great and the wine was at a perfect temperature. It all made for a perfect evening. If only all pubs and pub food could be this good! Well done!

We recently stayed in this lovely pub .The location is beautiful. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The owner was an extremely nice man and made sure our stay was as comfortable as it could be. The room we stayed in was immaculate and the bathroom was spotlessly clean. The bed was very...

We have just returned from two nights stay at The Greyhound Inn. Lovely accommodation, wonderful food, a very warm welcome and friendly helpful staff. The popular restaurant has a wonderful menu plus specials board. I like vegetarian food and loved the veggie options. Meat eaters are also spoilt for choice with lovely fish options too. Lovely spacious room (called Maisie...

First time staying in Devon, and could not have had better accommodation, and one at such fantastic value. The Greyhound Inn provides a welcoming atmosphere, with an almost hunting lodge-esc feel. Staff are friendly and eager to help, with the kitchen staff providing a delicious and varied assortment of choices for dinner (even catering for a couple of us with...

Initially we were surprised at quite how isolated this place is - 15 mins drive out of Dorchester, and the only pub/restaurant in a tiny and very quiet village - we usually like to have an alternative evening dining choice just in case the menu is very limited. However, we need not have feared. The food here is very good,...

Great food. Restaurant has a welcoming fire and a really full menu with lots of specials on the board. Friendly staff that always did all they could to help. Great shower really powerful over a huge deep bath. No good if you have difficulty getting in and out of the bath but great if you want to soak.Limited mobile phone...

We stayed just the one night in a dog friendly room. A lovely hotel in a peaceful rural location. Room was clean and comfy and we had a lovely view but was a little small so would book a larger room next time. Food in the evening was excellent, good selection and proper specials. It was busy but the service...
