“Good Friday lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

My wife and I took her Mum and our Border Collie Blue for lunch on Good Friday. We received a lovely welcome. The food was great and we will definitely return. The policy of allowing dogs into any part of the Hand and Dagger is a real bonus for dog lovers.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

The food and service here is fantastic. It is by far the best pub to eat at for miles. Really good, fresh cooked meals, none of this microwave horse in sight! I would recommend it to anyone.
