One of Dorset’s Hidden Gems

AD – PR Visit. A couple days ago I visited The Greyhound Inn, a historic, cosy pub, nestled at the bottom of the beautiful Corfe Castle, with the garden overlooking it. I’ve been to this pub three times now and I’ve loved it everytime, I will definitely be returning.

Once we arrived and had been greeted by the friendly staff, we sat outside and ordered our drinks. They have an amazing selection of gins, including one of my personal favourites, Whitley Neil Raspberry. The Pimms was a huge glass and decorated with fruit (definitely one for Instagram). We got a couple of the appetisers to start (olives and bread, and flatbread with dips), as we wanted to save room for pudding, but I wish we got starters as they look so amazing!


I chose the vegan burger which had a gorgeous chutney in it, vegan cheese, and onion rings. I was so torn between this and the fish and chips, so when I go back I will be ordering that. My boyfriend ordered the beef and chorizo burger which he said was delicious and my sister ordered the mussels with leek and chorizo, they looked amazing! All the food came out very quickly and was served beautifully. I spied on all the other tables to see what they were having and every dish was big portions, good quality, and plated up aesthetically. We made sure to save room for pudding and we were so glad we did. We shared the Eton Mess and the vanilla cheesecake which was covered in Biscoff and had caramel ice cream on the side.

This is the perfect place whether you want a romantic date, a meal out with friends, or a family trip. If it’s a bit chilly but you want to sit outside and take in the views then they have a covered area and blankets you can use to get cosy. If you want to make the most of your visit to Corfe Castle, why not explore the quaint, old town it is in and the rest of the Isle of Purbeck, there are so many beautiful places you can go. We went to Old Harry Rocks and then Kimmeridge Bay. It was the perfect day out and the pub was the perfect end to the day. You could also visit Studland, Swanage, Dancing Ledge, Weymouth, Lulworth Cove, and Durdle Door. If you aren’t from the local area, then why not come for a staycation.
