We offer a diverse selection of beverages, including the finest cask ales, keg lagers, and ciders sourced from local breweries like The Dorset Brewing Company, Ringwood Brewery, and the Purbeck Cider Company. We also have a premium wine selection featuring wines from around the world, along with a large selection of mainline and boutique spirits, including our own gin infusions.

Here at The Greyhound Inn we love our food, and the satisfaction of our guests is our number one priority. Our menus offer a variety of dishes to appeal to all dietary choices so, whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, celiac or fancy something completely new, there’s plenty of dishes for you to try – Just take your pick from our stunning selection of small dishes, larger plates, sharing platters and delicious desserts.

Not sure what drink will complement your meal? Our skilled bar staff are on hand to offer advice on our large selection of drinks. Whether it be a full-bodied red wine to pair with a beautifully cooked steak, or a hoppy ale from a local brewery to pair with our simply delicious sustainably caught cod and chips; our extensive drinks list is sure to have something which will take your fancy.

All of us at the Greyhound look forward to serving you.
