The Greyhound Inn

Pub with Rooms

The Greyhound Inn offers a fabulously warm welcome and looks after its guests with great care and attention. The rooms are thoughtfully appointed, the food is freshly prepared, imaginative and delicious, and there's a good selection of beers and wines by the glass. Guests can enjoy country walks from the doorstep or cycling routes on the untouched North Wessex Downs.

What makes a stay at The Greyhound Inn unique?

Nestled at the foot of the unspoilt North Wessex Downs, The Greyhound Inn's setting in a pretty downland village is perfect for a country getaway. Add a mouthwatering menu of modern British dishes, accompanied by a fine selection of wines and beers to enjoy, either in the sunny rose-clad walled garden or by one of the wood-burning stoves, and the relaxation begins. Staff care about their guests and little touches like fresh milk and homemade biscuits in the rooms, as well as wonderful handmade toiletries, fluffy towels and crisp white linen ensure a carefree stay, together with local walking maps, bike storage and advice about what to do in the area. Dogs and children are also very welcome.

What style cuisine is on offer at The Greyhound Inn?

Experienced and creative head chef, Martin Sherriff, has created a modern British seasonal à la carte menu, combined with pub favourites such as fish and chips, venison burger, all freshly prepared. Ice-creams, breads, chutneys and sauces are also all made in-house, and ingredients are delivered daily from a carefully selected group of suppliers. Try Tandoori monkfish, caramelised cauliflower, mango chutney, cumin-spiced tapioca cracker to start followed by Pressed pork belly, 12-hour pig’s cheek cannelloni, pickled apple, broccoli purée, almond milk. If you have room, the Chocolate & orange Jaffa cake delice, burnt orange & rosemary ice cream, mandarin gel is popular. 

The weekly Midweek Fix of two delicious courses for only £20, offers a lighter alternative to the à la carte menu and is hugely popular with locals who regularly gather for drinks and a chat. On weekday lunches, a £20 2-course or £24 3-course menu offers fantastic value for money. There are occasional seasonal Tasting Menus which showcase the best British ingredients of the moment.

What is the signature dish at The Greyhound Inn?

The signature starter is twice-baked Leonard Stanley cheddar soufflé with chowder. Other regular favourites include venison or beef burger with bacon jam, smoked cheddar cheese, vegetable and walnut slaw or beer-battered fish and chips. The menu is otherwise changing with the seasons so there is always variety.
