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.

    Really great food. Service was fantastic. Wine really tasty. Would come again for sure. Highly recommended. Only negative was the roast potatoes could have been a bit more crispy and the gravey a bit thicker.

    Food - awesome Service - attentive and friendly but not over the top Price - good value for money We have now been back 3 times in the last 3 months - little changes in the menu each time - the restaurant is trying to work with what is in season and what is local. From what we have seen they are doing a fantastic job Well worth a visit - and we will definitely be returning

    Very enjoyable evening with great food and service. The only disappointment was that 3 dishes we asked for from the menu had run out and it was only 8.30 pm, hence 4 stars. We will be back though.

    We went with friends to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Lovely ambience and service (from some staff) was great. However the food and wines were disappointing, particularly given the price. I would imagine they have the ambition to be the area’s best gastropub but the food quality just doesn’t justify the prices (yet)

    The location is easy to find and parking is good.The room is very pleasant without any pretension. The menu is varied, less than a usual range of dishes, and the cooking and presentation is professional but without irrelevant excesses. The service is very good but again without fuss, Altogether an excellent lunch of very good value in a well thought outenvironment

    It's great having such a good local pub/restaurant - fine dining rather than pub grub, but not too pricey, and with an excellent wine list. The service was especially friendly and efficient.

    Excellent lunch at the revamped Greyhound. The staff were excellent, well informed, friendly and the speed of service was very good considering how busy the restaurant was during our lunch sitting. The portion sizes were good and the flavour combinations really worked well - the beef wellington in particular was exceptionally well cooked and flavoursome. Would highly recommend.

Delicious food, a good variety of set menu without too much confusing choice. Extremely good value for money. I have recommended to 2 friends and we will go again soon I hope

    The attention to detail is sheer class. The staff exude confidence in their offer; they are knowledgeable and have sampled all the dishes. The food was brilliant and beautifully presented. We left wanting to come back. The low rating for ambiance was solely as it early evening on a MONDAY in January! It was filling up as we left. Great staff, great venue, great food. Well done all at The Greyhound.

    Myself and my husband went back to The Greyhound to celebrate 11 years after our first date there. It’s new owners have made it so lovely with a high end country restaurant/bar vibe and a very nice looking produce shop too. It’s warm and welcoming as were the manager and waiters and waitresses. The food is delicious, a little bit fancy without being pretentious and definitely not all looks and no substance which I can’t stand. We managed three courses without feeling too full and each one was as delightful as the next. It’s definitely worth a visit. We will be going again soon.

    First visit to The Greyhound for a light meal since refurbishment. The chef has prepared an amazing menu, great ingredients created into delicious dishes. My friend had the celeriac soup with truffle oil and woodland mushroom toastie. I had the smoked trout on soda bread with homemade horseradish, with a side of tempura pickles and stilton dip.
