Nice setting, lovely views but unfortunately the bloke who served us was extremely grumpy. Didn't utter a single word at all when serving us. Will not be going back.

I have just been to the Sun , and there were 2 or 3 dogs in the eating area near the bar, and 2 more in another room. Unfortunate smell of wet dog, but yes, pets seem to be welcome.
