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.

    I went for a lunchtime meal for 2 and enjoyed beautifully presented, tasty food (of reasonable quantity) with charming service and setting. Sure the atmosphere is getting a little more noisy (Christmas party season), but overall this added to a welcoming and relaxed environment.

    Great food and great service! Took my partner here for his birthday meal and enjoyed fish starters and the steaks for main. Had to sit in the bar area as we took our dog with us but this did not impact the level of service we received. Our server Manuel was very attentive, as we're all the staff. Even our furry friend felt very welcomed and was given a plate of dog treats and a water bowl as soon as we sat down :) Would 100% recommend, can't wait to go back!

    What a fantastic little treasure. Booked after reading a few positive reviews on Trip Advisor - those reviews were absolutely spot on. Awesome food, good size servings, attentive staff including Birthday Greetings to my husband which ticked another ‘special’ box. Must have been good - we have already booked to go back ! Well done to all the team - both front of house and the kitchen

    Having not seen some of our friends for quite a while it was decided that a get together for Sunday lunch was in order, I had spotted that The Greyhound had recently reopened (August !) and not having been there for a long time have it a try and we were not disappointed. The staff are very friendly and the owner was very accommodating when two of our party late, the quality of the food was very good and we will definitely be going back to sample other delights on the menu.

    An excellent addition to the town. Interesting menu, knowledgeable and friendly staff and quick service, which, together with very acceptable prices, put it at the top of the list of eating out destinations. Only drawback from its popularity is the considerable noise level - not to be recommended for a quiet conversation on a Saturday.

    My Wife and I had a fantastic dinner at the Greyhound last night. We were very well looked after from the moment we walked in by the delightful Razvan. The ambience and decor are very nice and the food itself was outstanding, not to mention the Wine. We are very excited to have discovered this fantastic local restaurant and can’t wait to go back soon!

    We went for a late afternoon Sunday roast and the Greyhound had a great, buzzy atmosphere. The staff were very attentive - thank you Zeb! The roasts were superb. There are a number of good pubs around us and this was one of the best Sunday roasts we've had. We'll definitely be coming back and bringing family & friends.

    Excellent Sunday roast with stunningly cooked beef. Great service. Only downside were customers on next table who had three young children, no problem so far, but each child had a iPad and they were all watching different programs without earphones. The noise was dreadful and terribly intrusive. Spoiled what would have been a great afternoon out as we literally couldn’t hear one another above the racket. Adults seemed completely oblivious. How times have changed.

    We had lunch this Sunday as a group of 6. We all enjoyed our various meals and the service was attentive and prompt. We have eaten here before, in the evening - when we thought the Restaurant lacked atmosphere, possibly due the lighting, however we all really enjoyed our meals and felt it worked very well and had a good ambience at lunchtime.

    Pleasant evening, venue service and ambiance was great but really think the prices are way over not only for food but especially wine. £38 for a bottle of local wine that’s £13 on the shelf down the road?? £135 for a meal for two without starters just snacks, main course and no desserts or coffee, and 1 bottle of fairly acidic wine. Will not be returning at this kind of cost.

    The meet and greet chap was trying to be humerus, but was not very welcoming. We were then told that the two steak dishes were off the menu and to hurry and order as the other meat dishes were going fast. I found the choice of remaining menu to be very limited, with only two items that I considered - not what I had hoped for. That said, the hake dish was excellent.

    My wife's starter was burnt twice before a satisfactory one appeared after the rest of us had finished. The portions were small and overall I felt it was poor value. I won't go back.

    Very busy and quite noisy, perhaps too many covers? Order was taken very quickly. The starters arrived and the wine didn't...and a reminder was required. The food was OK. My wife had the smoked goose which was very good, I had the scallops which were not - overcooked and slightly rubbery. The came out so quickly that I think they were already done and kept warm on the pass. Also, there were only two scallops which for nearly £15 is poor value - most good restaurants give you at least three scallops. We both had the mussels which were not bad, but not very hot and not enough liquid on the plate to keep them warm. The triple cooked chips were very good. All in all a big OK, more style than substance.

    Wow - what amazing food and yes I would like to go back again Restaurant was very busy There is a good sized car park On arrival we were welcomed and shown to our table The service was very good We were taken through the menu and specials The food was excellent from starter to dessert and the price was in line with the quality of food, preparation and presentation. Delivery of each course was timely- we weren't left waiting and we weren't rushed Thanks for a lovely time.

    Overall we enjoyed the food and the service was very good I would suggest that the design of the Menu's is rethought as the writing is small and the colour of the Menu card does not help My only criticism is the starter of scallops although very nice was over priced at £14.50 for two !

    Excellent service, thanks Alistair Slack. Good menu and all dishes were available. I chose the venison and calf liver which I had on a previous occasion and liked. However on this occasion the dish came covered in sauce. I prefer to see the meat and add my own sauce
