This is fairly close to the feel of wetherspoons really but a fair bit more expensive. Food is fine and service is ok but realistically you will get roughly the same up the road. If you have s loyalty card then you get discount but I don't think it applies every day .

This is fine for a drink with the kids so they can play outside but apart from that I wouldn't recommend for food. Can get very busy with kids outside

On holiday in August and visited this pub for a drink, the beer garden play area was great for our grandaughter and was ideal for her to play. The area although wasn't too busy we found that all the tables were full of previous meals that had not been cleaned away and there appeared to be a shortage of staff.... More

Visiting a pub with young kids can often be a struggle as your taking them into an adult environment with very little to keep them entertained. Not a problem here! The hairy dog has the best play area I have ever seen, the garden area is dominated by a collection of huge climbing frames/slides/bridges/rope walks. I've not tried the food... More
