Spent two nights here on a special deal, which included a dinner on the first evening. Pub itself is old, and decor is tired, with difficult access to negotiate of you are unsteady on your feet - several up and down steps both outside and in. Reception area a bit odd - very cluttered with goods and slightly tacky gifts... More

Although the majority of review for the Dog and Partridge were positive in nature I - like I am sure many - was worried about some of the negatives; I am however pleased to say that they were completely unfounded. We used the inn as a stop over on our trip back from Manchester to Basildon; hoping to enjoy some... More

A group of us met at the Dog & Partridge for a family celebration and had a lovely weekend there. The staff were very helpful and the bar area easily accommodated our group which included a toddler and two dogs. There was a wide selection of food at all meals and it was all well cooked and presented. The bedrooms... More

To say our visit didn't coincide with the best weather is somewhat of an understatement but the cosiness of the Dog and Partridge, the warmth of the welcome from charming staff and excellent food outweighed the cold and rain. Though some of the public area in the modern part of the building is slightly dated, our room was spotlessly clean,... More

To be fair, let me start by saying that it was a very large group of us staying for 2 nights and it is difficult to cater for and deal with so many people at the same time. Things may be different for 2 or 4 people eating or staying. Pros Staff extremely friendly and helpful (apart from one restaurant... More

Had a wonderful stay over Christmas 2015 good clean rooms, quiet location despite the road. Very good food and excellent service by all the staff who worked hard to make it a special Christmas for my wife, mother in law and our dog. Very dog friendly and plenty of areas to walk your dog. The activities arranged e.g quiz, church... More

We had no where to stay last night and found the dog and partridge county inn by accident - what an amzing surprise - the staff were amazing, the food was gorgeous (dinner and breakfast). Friendly doesn't even cover them - the room was out of this world with its morning views - spacious (yes we had a family room)... More

We enjoyed our NY break at the Dog and Partridge. The staff were very welcoming and the pub is very dog friendly. People without dogs might find it too dog friendly. At anyone time there was always a dog in the bar, which for us was not a problem. The rooms are away from the Hotel - some 50 yards.... More
