Living locally we have tried out most of the local venues for various reasons, birthday meals, celebrations, Sunday lunches etc. Every time we visit the Ginger Dog, we are accommodated, even when they are busy/full. I rarely visit a pub & enjoy a Sunday lunch, often suffering soggy roast potatoes, overcooked beef or crackleless crackling, every time we visit the... More

Was told great things about the pub. Food was adequate because but not as spectacular as the price suggested. Put off from ever going again from the waitress shouting abuse at our party, not what you expert from a well respected establishment.

We booked this restaurant for dinner at 8pm on New Year's day and it was not very busy when we turned up about 15 minutes late. The whole place felt very intimate and homey; More like a gastro pub rather than a traditional pub. I loved the quaint fireplace. We were seated promptly. Apart from the normal a la carte... More

Delicious lunch for all the family, excellent service, friendly staff, highly recommended. Parking can be a bit of an issue if you are not a local permit holder. But the place is worth the effort of finding a spot! We will definitely be back.

We arrived without a booking on a busy night but very helpful staff found us a table as long as we only stayed an hour which was fine by us. Excellent service and tasty food but potato pancakes were small enough to be a starter. It's a personal preference but I don't like having a service charge added automatically. I... More

Came here for a Christmas meal. The food was good and interesting and waitress friendly and helpful when one of our group got delayed with the trains! Only complaint was that portions are on the small side for the price.

I will be honest - it's not perfect ! However the food is. And the staff are friendly and lovely. Service needs work. Kitchen needs to carry on sending out perfect food ! Why can you not serve wine when ordered!

We came here for an evening meal on Sunday at short notice. The staff were very accommodating even providing a high chair for our infant, very child friendly. The food was very tasty and the started potato pancakes was out of this world, small portions but a taste explosion. The main course for me of steak was a agian marvellous... More
