Lovely pub and dogs welcome

Cosy fire, good food, friendly staff and dogs welcome. We stayed at Rock Lodge just up the road, so wasn't too far for us to get there.

we were staying down the road At barn cottage and Ann recommended eating here. We are here two lunchtime and food, staff and value for money was excellent. Beer really good quality. The maintenance guy even got us out a bench for us to eat outside on Tuesday. The dog enjoyed is fuss from the staff. Highly recommend
