Walked into this pub after taking my dog for a walk along the local public footpaths. I looked carefully on my way in for signs that might indicate that they are not keen on dogs, but found none, so walked in anticipating a nice atmostphere and a decent pint - how misguided I was !
Stood at the bar for ages because landlady and landlord were busy pandering to diners in the restaurant, or simply unavailable because they were busy in the kitchen.
Both the landlady and landlord both saw that I had a Collie with me, but didn't mention anything. Landlady asked what she could get me eventually, and I had a pint of Marstons (set me back £3 and tasted a bit like vinegar). Stuck up landlady then said I'd have to sit outside to drink it because dogs were not allowed in the pub - why didn't she say that before pouring me a pint ? She wanted my money first, obviously, grrrr.
It was blowing a gale outside and I was thretening rain. I sat outside in the wind in disbelief that the landlady would turf me out in the cold with no forewarning or any signage to indicate that dogs were not welcome. I've never been so disgusted with a publican in all my life.
IF YOU ARE A DOG OWNER, WALKER OR REAL ALE ENTHUSIAST, I MOST STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU GIVE THIS ESTABLISHMENT A WIDE BERTH BECAUSE YOU WON'T FIND A WARM WELCOME HERE.
