I am not sure about dogs you would need to ask but another friend went just recently and had an expensive and disappointing meal so beware! If you go please let me know how it was? Thanks

Only a few months, but it is all changing again and reverting back to its origins of being a Pub with good food instead of a Gastro restaurant with a bar.
