Really nice birthday meal here, the duck was amazing and the service was excellent, came in had a drink and then were seated straight away. Some things were quite pricey but I'd say it is definitely worth the money.

We went in for drinks. They didn't have peach schnapps for bellinis, and Mojitos were not very good. Expensive, first and last time for cocktails there.

Hi Kat-buckley, Unfortunately we don't allow dogs to stay, however if it is for assistance it's best to call The White Star and speak to a Manager. I hope this helps
