This was by the landlord and local customers. Arrangements are made so you can dine in the bar with the dog by your side.... More

I have now had the mega burger twice and failed to finish both meals. With black pudding and blue cheese on it, it is fantastic. Three real ales - Hobgoblin, Black Sheep and Wainwrights and all on top performance.

Tony's dog Rex is lovely. We are not walkers and planned to use the pub as a base to drive around and see the... More
