As we were staying close by we thought we would try the Dog and Gun for evening meal and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend.

We went for an evening meal with friends. They had been before but we had not. Everything that you imagine a country pub should be, friendly reception and staff, regular menu and blackboard specials, excellent value, quiet comfy atmosphere.

Sorry unable to answer this question. It is only a small pub with three areas. I know the Landlady and her husband breed dogs but not noticed any in the pub. Suggest giving them a ring they are very friendly people.
