Dog Friendly

We are a dog friendly pub. All we ask is that your dog should be on a lead at all times.

We are deeply sorry to announce that our pub dog Max is sadly no longer with us. He left us on July 17th 2020 and will be deeply missed by locals, regulars and annual visitors that all got to know him and his 'Max Bingo' so well.

Goodbye Max

Thankfully, we still have our pub dog crazy Daisy:

We also have two naughty pub cats Tia and Maria:
