This is a good pub that serves the usual pub grub well. We enjoyed our mains although many dishes were sold out. The service was interesting - ranging from excellent and friendly to abrupt and unhelpful. Good value for moneyMore

They appear on several sites as dog friendly, but you have to sit outside, not in the bar as stated. Also, not good at answering the phone to enquiries about whether they are dog friendly.
