We came across this Inn in the Best Pub Guide. We were traveling from Somerset to Scotland and do not like motorway service stations, although roughly 1 miles off the motorway it is more than worth it. The food was exceptional and staff excellent and am only able to say if you happen to be near make the effort to... More

I have been going here for over 5 years and love it. Love it even more since it has been refurbished - they retained the best staff (Yvonne and Trevor) who always greet me with a smile and excellent efficient service. A favourite now and for many years to come!

I stayed at the Dog for a couple of nights when attending a nearby wedding. After a horrendous 7 hour journey, we arrived tired and hungry. We were welcomed by the bar staff and shown to our really pleasant room. Next it was food, which although it was a small menu, it was beautifully presented and full of flavour. The... More

You can tell that the people who run the business care about it. The manageress was pretty prominent, the staff were all very polite and helpful, and the food (Sunday menu) was good. Traditional roast lunch with veg, and of course there's nothing wrong with that. It would be great to have this place as your local.

Great sandwiches served by pleasant staff. A lovely traditional country pub in a stunning setting. We had a club sandwich and a steak sandwich both served with generous sides of salad and fries then we had coffee outside. We came all the way from Blackpool on recomendation and it was well worth it...We'll be back.

Very nice place, great stopover. Food exceptional, staff welcoming and an excellent ale selection. If staying make sure you eat lunch or dinner here, either way a great breakfast will send you on your way. The room (4) was basic, but no complaints at all.
