At first glance all seems good. Nice conservatory, beer garden, decent sized menu with small portions available, doggie friendly. However, our waitress was extremely badly trained, hadn't a clue what half of the things were in the menu, service slow (bad management, not waitress fault)....More

Hi Sorry I don't know. It will be a shame if it has closed down. Have you tried calling a Tourist Information office in the nearby area, or even a public library near by? Good luck.

This I'm not sure about. I didn't see any dogs either in the bar area. Only thing I can suggest is if you call the Aberlady Inn direct.
