Nestled amidst the captivating Carpathian and Apuseni mountains, Transylvania is a land that has long captured the imagination of many with its mythical legends and vampire lore. But beyond its tales of mystery, this heartland of Romania boasts extraordinary beauty, intriguing foods, and a warm hospitality that leaves a lasting impression on anyone who visits.
For The Greyhound Inn, Transylvania holds a special place in our heart, and that connection comes through our immensely talented Head Chef, Alexandru Ciresaru. With over two decades of culinary experience, Chef Alexandru has honed his skills under the guidance of some of the finest chefs in the country, enriching his expertise in the art of gastronomy.
**From Transylvania to Corfe Castle**
Now, situated beneath the stunning backdrop of Corfe Castle, Chef Alex and his dedicated team are consistently crafting new and exciting dishes that delight and satisfy our customers. The Greyhound Inn has become a hot-spot for food enthusiasts seeking something a little special. Dishes like our Butcher’s Board invite meat lovers to indulge in tender, slow-cooked shredded brisket and pulled pork sliders bursting with smoky flavours. Local sausages, half a succulent rotisserie chicken, tangy pickles, and creamy black garlic aioli complemented by gourmet chunky chips add a satisfying crunch to this delectable platter.
Another highlight, the Shredded Brisket Bun, features 18-hour slow-cooked, melt-in-your-mouth hand-shredded Aberdeen Angus brisket, piled high on a brioche bun. The sandwich is accompanied by crunchy coleslaw and a smoky Kentucky bourbon sauce, with house pickles and chunky chips – truly a summertime delight for every food enthusiast.
