The perfect place to unwind with a glass of something chilled and enjoy delicious, freshly cooked food with family and friends. Our food is cooked entirely from scratch using fresh, seasonal produce. We have selected a range of fine wines, beers and spirits to accompany our menu. When the weather is good, guests can dine on the terrace which is covered with huge umbrellas and super-efficient heaters...Ideal for those long lazy al fresco lunches! PS...Whilst bookings are not mandatory they are strongly recommended. Email reservations are not a definite booking unless we send you confirmation but we will try our very best to accommodate you.

Hadn't been here since the revamp and will definitely be going back. Very attentive staff, great choice of menu, lovely setting, inside is really nice. The food was fantastic and portions are huge! Too stuffed to try the amazing sounding desserts!

8 of us went today at 3pm for friends birthday maybe we booked to late because the standard of the roasts were below what you can normally expect here. Had to send some back as potatoes and Yorkshire puddings were burnt and dry, The beef and pork seemed like the last servings of the day as were grey and not... More

The refurbishment has made the Dog and Gun a fully fledged restaurant. The menu offered good choice of meat and fish.The food was outstanding-my starter which was spicy fish chowder with a slight coconut flavour was lovely and smooth with plenty of seafood and my rib eye was first class- cooked perfectly and very tender and tasty. Service was excellent... More

Our group of 8 visited last night. 2 had been before when it was just a pub, for the rest of us it was our 1st visit. On arrival the restaurant looks very inviting, the grounds are immaculate. Inside it's clean, well laid out and feels comfortable. Our table was ready for us and the waitresses were very smiley, friendly... More

Although no longer a pub this always steps up to the mark in the quality of food served. I've only used it for the odd Sunday lunch and the menu is limited but something for all tastes. Good wine menu, the only down side is that one has to drive to get to it.

We visited the Dog & Gun on Saturday 18/4. We were a bit late arriving but when we arrived the table was ready so a very friendly waitress showed us to our seats. We were given time to get settled and then our drinks order was taken. The menu was perused and it was a difficult choice as everything sounded... More

Visited today for lunch for my husband's 50th Birthday with 2 friends. Gorgeous weather, so sat outside. Served by a lovely friendly waitress with a superb sense of humour. Food was really really good with a separate menu for one of our party who required gluten free. Excellent choice, we had ham, duck eggs and chips and BBQ chicken, sweet... More

Revisiting for the first time in about 12 years. It has changed considerably and is now a very nice place to eat and drink. I went with 4 friends for a mid week meal and found the food amazing. We all Enjoyed our different meals and the desserts were also to die for. We often eat out and this is... More

We visited the restraunt on a Saturday evening, it was very busy, we wanted a drink at the bar first but were shown straight to our table, we ordered appitisers and starters which were served together, we had to request not to have our main course served for 20 minutes as the meal felt rushed, the staff were very busy...
