Great place to go to watch the dogs. Service at the bar was quick and friendly. Had a burger which was nice. A little over priced but this is expected. And can be overlooked as it's free to enter!

We were in a box so we could all be together. The food was good and the service was brilliant. The staff couldn't do enough for us. Have done this before and will definitely go back again
