The Dog and Duck and has a good selection of beers in comfortable surroundings. The waitress on the particular day we were in was very friendly and pleasant which makes all the difference. Dog's are welcome and there seems to be a good atmosphere. The Goulash was great, especially the dumplings!

If you can find a seat it's well worth it. Good selection of local real ales and nice food. The main issue you will find is getting somewhere to sit down it's that busy.

The Dog and Gun has been refurbished. It no longer has the atmosphere it once had but is still a welcoming bar. The menu has been revamped. It still sells it's famous Goulash. Our food was presented really well. It wasn't a cheap lunch but it was worth the money.

We stopped off in here after a long day walking with our dog. Settled down in this very welcoming and friendly pub. Decided after looking at the menu to order food, we didnt have to wait long for the lovely waitress to fetch our food...which was steaming hot and extremely well made. Not a bad price either to say its... More

This is our first visit to the Dog and Gun since it changed hands and was refurbished. We didn't know what to expect, however while I do think its lost a bit of atmosphere and become very food centred at the tables, then it remains as good as every. We visited twice, both of us having the excellent goulash on... More

Popular with locals and tourists and their dogs. Fairly small interior: we were there about 6:00 pm, and got the last available table. Ordered from the bar and a few minutes later, my wife's starter order of chicken strips and my small goulash arrived shortly. Glad I ordered the small; it was almost too much. The goulash was appealing with... More
