I researched on internet to find a dog friendly pub in my area that my friend and I could enjoy lunch and a chat, accompanied by my small dog.
We were extremely surprised to have such a warm and cheerful greeting by the sweet barmaid on entry, when I checked first before taking the dog inside.
The service was prompt and food arrived quickly too. The barmaid was genuinely friendly to us and the dog. It was fairly quiet when we arrived but a few locals arrived about half an hour later.
The food was tasty and good value in the bar, also a nice ambience in there.
Overheard a couple quibbling to each other as to whether there was a dog on my lap or not, but I don't know if it was because they disapproved or whether they were arguing because 1 could see him and 1 couldn't. Pub states on internet it is dog friendly and I was not breaking any rules. Recommended pub for this reason anyhow so take your dog and give it a go.
