We stopped here during a walk to have drinks. As a large group (9 adults 2 children) we were welcomed, the weather was suitable to sit out side and the children. Got to enjoy time on the play park.

Sorry for delay .. you’re correct .. no dogs inside the pub , but there is a field with tables that you can have a drink and have the dog sit there. They’ll give you a water bowl too. Not great for winter, but lovely in... More
