Booked for 12 noon for lunch as we were in the area. As it was hot the 'pods' had their sides up, and the garden was peaceful. The service was good, and the drinks came quickly. We ordered tapas: it was freshly cooked, and three...More

Dogs are allowed in the bar, the snug, on the patio and in the beer garden, but not the main restaurant. There are dog biscuits behind the bar and the staff made a fuss of our two when we visited.
