British
Taking hospitality back to its roots with a warm welcome from our genuinely friendly team breathing new life back into the heart of the community.
The menu will offer daily, hyper-seasonal specials, and plenty of British game, meat and fish. Executive chef and owner, Jamie Dobbin is passionate about local sourcing and traditional dishes, such as Half dozen Porthilly rock oysters with shallot dressing, Brixham King scallops with burnt butter cauliflower and caviar or Portland hogget Shepherd’s pie with grilled cutlet.
Serious meat lovers can expect 45 day aged native and rare breed steak on offer as well as a hero dish of Beef Wellington for two. Fish is of course wild, sustainable, and British, sourced from day boats on the South coast with the daily catch delivered straight to the door in a matter of hours. There is a handsome bar menu too, and as always, Sunday roasts are a big fixture on the menu every week.

A different menu offering a varied choice. The service was attentive but not fussy. Plenty of opportunity to relax between courses with a pleasant ambience.

Disappointed
New owners, great marketing words. Fell way short of expectations.
Sunday lunch was cold, Yorkshire pudding was tough and not freshly made. Instead of fresh pipping hot vegetables, we had luke warm over cooked green and 4 slices of carrot!
Roast potatoes were crisp but again, chewy. Beef was OK, although thick lump of fat along one side.
"Whipped" Horseradish was tasteless.
Sticky toffee pudding was way too sweet and portion size was smaller than average. Very mixed quality of waiters, from professional to kids with love bites on their neck! Car parking spaces had tables and chairs on them, losing 3-4 spaces for guests to use. So had to park 5 minute walk away.

Wonderful wonderful wonderful- this was our second visit and it certainly won’t be our last. Everything about this pace is just perfect- outstanding food at sensible prices, discreet yet attentive service and a beautiful venue. My only complaint- you need to be organised to get a table- it’s certainly popular!

Went to the Greyhound on a Tuesday evening, a good atmosphere for dinner.

The menu is fantastic, so many unique choices it was really hard to choose which means I will be going back to try other dishes.

Lovely cocktails and wine menu, our waiter was very friendly and helpful when it came to the menu.

Lovely pub, recently refurbished. Menu refreshingly different but not weird or pretentious. All the food was of fantastic quality. Service was good but we waited too long between courses. Value for money outstanding considering the quality of the food.

The best Sunday lunch I've had in ages! Pricey but well worth it. A good plateful of perfectly cooked roast beef & potatoes, accompanied by three vegetable dishes, gravy and creamed horseradish. The staff were welcoming, friendly, attentive & responsive to our requests. Good luck finishing the Black Forest sundae!

Good food, we particularly enjoyed the beef wellington and it was a good sized portion. Whilst the service was attentive, it lacked warmth. We didn't find it a particularly friendly place to dine, very few words from the waitress serving us.

So happy to see the Greyhound was reopening and with new chefs bring a special local twist. Welcome was friendly; starter was sublime (soup) and hubby raved over steak tartare. Chicken was very good and mussels were delicious. Those triple cooked chips were fabulous. Save room for dessert- plum and pear crumble was brilliant. Wonderful meal, friendly service and great ambience. We will definitely be back

Lots of meal options; delicious food and so well presented; just right portions. Super friendly and personal service by all staff from being greeted at the door to leaving. not intrusive service but the staff checked in to see that we were ok and then kept us up to date on the food progress. On the high end of the price scale for a regular visit unfortunately for our family - more of a special occasion. However absolutely recommend The Greyhound to friends and have already done so!
