Me and my girlfriend went for a last minute dinner and were not disappointed. The food was cooked to perfection and paired with a delicious wine ! ( I recommend the lamb and creme brûlée for desert)

A great place to eat for Sunday lunch and reasonable value. Portions were large for starters (smoked salmon and prawn cocktail the main choice for our party) and good for mains. Veggies served separately and cooked al-dente. A good choice of mains and desserts. Service was very attentive and friendly staff. Country upmarket pub with nice garden for the summer.

We entered this establishment to be welcomed with a bucks fizz, the atmosphere was warm and inviting with efficient and friendly staff... More

Saturday night and not much more than burgers on the menu! My mushroom Linguine had solidified before I could finish, there was so much cream in it. Starters were of odd proportions, some more like mains, and the soups/chowders were so sweet and not at all fishy. There is no bar area to await friends and have Apéritifs, if you... More

We had been to this establishment two or three years previous where we had enjoyed a very pleasant meal in relaxed surroundings. Since our last visit, the Dog and Gun has undergone a major refurbishment. Any restaurant that looks good has to produce the goods... More
