The rooms are excellent value and a good size and clean & tidy , the pub/restaurant is nice and the food was ok and no complaints but unfortunately the bar service was poor at best . Maybe we were unlucky so worth a look as not expensive for room & dinner .

Stayed for one night prior to playing golf locally. Booked online but I'm afraid the web site flatters to deceive. Check-in procedure lukewarm and room quite basic. Whilst appearing to be clean and tidy, the main bedroom light would not switch on but continually flickered. Tap in bath constantly dripped and bed headboard covering was peeling off. Evening meal also...

We stopped here for lunch after a family event. Interior is a delightful mix of traditional and modern. Staff were accommodating and friendly. Our meals were well presented, tasty and generous portions. The whole experience left us all promising to return very soon.

The pub has a very attractive seating area either side of an open fireplace with large leather armchairs. A pleasant place to sit and enjoy a drink and unwind. Large restaurant area with well spaced tables and good wide menu. Rooms comfortable but not luxurious. Just need to upgrade fixtures and fittings and fabrics to give a more luxurious feel....

I've stopped at the Dog House a few times whilst away on business and always found the pub/hotel to be of a high standard, with great food and friendly staff.... My only gripe would be that the rooms could do with a little spruce up but that being said they are clean and tidy.... Overall then a great little hotel...

Lovely staff, very attentive and friendly. Evening meal was great, no complaints at all. The breakfast however, was undercooked the first morning and served on a cold plate and overcooked the next morning and served on a red hot plate. Would happily stay again providing I stick to cereal. Our room was comfortable but stuck in the 80s. Decor could...

This is a great pub in a great location offering a full bar and restaurant. Good sized facility means one never feels cramped. Outdoor facilities are plentiful if not really useable in February! For all it's good points the Dog House is let down by its menu. Why? Well, it's not that it's bad it's just frustrating that the menu...

We stopped here for something to eat on our way home from a long trip. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the bar area was spacious and pleasant and they had a good choice of beers. The menu was interesting and good value, we had the wagyu burger and the salmon salad, both were delicious - recommended.
