Accommodation Description:

A Warm & Friendly Welcome awaits you at Greyhound Inn. A great meal and a great sleep, local food and proper pillows that's what we do at the Greyhound. It's a centuries old coaching inn set in an ancient Thomas Hardy village so pretty it takes your breath away.

The pub closes in the afternoon between 15:00 and 17:30. therefore please be aware check in times are from 14:00 and 13:00 and after 17:30. We have 3 dog friendly bedrooms.

There is a GBP 15 dog surcharge per night

Think of soft rounded chalk hills watercress farms thatched cottages and a trout stream running through then double it and you get Sydling St Nicholas. Add in crisp white sheets fluffy towels free wi-fi everywhere and officially the best pub food in Dorset (two Good Pub Guide Awards) and you get the perfect English pub with rooms. We don't call it a boutique pub with rooms but others have so we're not complaining.

Our rooms come in two sizes and two prices. The larger doubles are GBP 99 per night for the room including breakfast while the standard doubles are GBP 89 per night for the room inclusive of breakfast. The rooms have all been refurbished using Dorset's own Farrow and Ball with liberal use of our new favourite colour (and name) Mizzle! They all have dimmable lighting French beds or divans crisp cotton sheets and proper duvets and pillows.

We have 3 dog friendly bedrooms 1 large double 1 standard double and 1 standard twin. There is a GBP 15 dog surcharge per night. To book a dog friendly room please contact us direct.

The bathrooms have either baths or showers or both and you'll find great smelly things from Arran Aromatics to use during your stay. For entertainment watch your Sony flat screen or slip in a dvd from our library at the bar. Our strength has been in fish with our chef ordering the night before after a phone call to the quaysides in Weymouth and Bridport on the Jurassic Coast just 20 minutes away.

That's not to say our steaks aren't the best in Dorset and we usually have game when in season with venison and wild boar (yes running free in neighbouring Devon) usually available. Please note check in times 14:00 - 15:00 and after 17:30
