Booked in here for lunch and was not disappointed. Good wholesome fare with a wide choice of lunch items. They also serve a breakfast up to 11 am. The service was good with attentiveness and cheerfulness in equal measures. Had to re-arrange original booking and this was done without any issues and even our late arrival on the day did... More

We only stayed 1 night and only in room number 2. We did however eat at the hotel in the evening, which was very nice and also a full English breakfast next morning which was also scrummy. However, when we first went into the room it seemed okay although quite small for a family room and there were three of... More

We ate here today for Sunday lunch. The staff were lovely and the food was lovely. The vegetables were cooked perfectly. The menu is very good and the desserts were lovely too. Lovely clean dining area and outside seating too. Definitely recommend.

You get a warm and friendly welcome from all the staff at the Dog and Bear. The rooms are very pleasant and the bathrooms have been updated. Just a minor thing, I found the handles on the doors quite difficult to operate. They are rustic type handles, quite ornate but not smooth to operate. Breakfast enormous, if you like that... More

Last Thursday I went to the Dog & Bear for a bar meal with my family. We ordered some drinks and then after some consideration from the bar menu, which was on the tables we proceeded to ask if we could order some food. The response from the barman was "no unless you have booked or a resident of the... More

I booked a room for the night as a surprise for my fiance's birthday and the staff were lovely enough to upgrade our room for the occasion, also leaving a box of chocolates and a birthday card for when we arrived! Upon arrival, the car park is small but sufficient enough for guests and those wishing to use the pub/restaurant... More

After a disappointing start to our day we stumbled across the dog and bear. We were looked after so well by all the staff and they couldn't help us enough. Service was great.room was very comfortable but if over 6 foot maybe a different room. Would definitely recommend this bar/restaurant/hotel. Thank you for making a bad day into a lovely... More

A real little gem in a small village yet just a short distance from the major roads. Only stayed for one night but found the staff to be very friendly and helpful both when booking and during our overnight stay, a real credit to the establishment. Will certainly stay again when in the area. Our room was of a good... More
