I'm seen several dogs in the bar so I'm sure it's OK.

The Schooner is an independent gastropub nestled on the Sussex shoreline between Hove & Shoreham, offering locally sourced meats, fish & seafood. Situated in an 18th Century building with a warm welcome, real fires and stunning panoramic views overlooking Lady Bee Marina & the harbour it's a wonderful place to spend the evening or a Sunday lunch.
