5 things to do this Autumn & Winter at The Greyhound Inn, Corfe Castle!

If you were under the impression that there might not be a lot to do on a holiday in Corfe during autumn and winter, or that places will be closed up and hibernating, then we are here to tell you why you couldn’t be more wrong!

Corfe Castle is increasingly becoming an all-year-round destination for a short break, long weekend or long holiday during the months from October to December.

If you fancy making memories with loved ones, then take a look at the list we have put together below, of some fantastic things to do during a holiday in Corfe…

1. WHOLE HOG SUNDAYS | October 23rd | October 30th 2022

Looking for an adventure filled Sunday?

All ages are captivated by the breath-taking Corfe Castle views, where you can learn about local tales of treachery and discover fallen walls and secret places throughout the ruins.

After an adventure filled Sunday, join us and sit back, relax and enjoy the mouth-watering aromas of slow roasted whole hog, served in baps full of crackling, homemade apple sauce and stuffing. Or perhaps you would prefer to enjoy The Greyhound Festival Platter, delicious hog roast bap served with a duo of char-grilled local sausages and pork scratching’s, enjoyed with a local cider slider.

We are extremely happy to announce another local addition to our menu! We will have a fantastic array of Temple Ciders available during our Sausage and Cider Festival this October half term. As we’re sure you’re going to love these local ciders as much as we do, they will be officially added to the menu from November!

The perfect Sunday day out.
