The Silvery Tay has recently changed ownership and the quality of food has gone down hill. Fish was not fresh, over cooked and the chips were cold.

I wouldn't have thought so. The shop is a take away and not very big. However it has a big window and plenty places outside where a dog could be safely tied up and easily seen from inside.
