Excellent food and very good choice of beer. Limited toilets, outside seating and good bacon rolls early in the morning on way to work.

The Dog is always busy and buzzing. Definitely book in advance. Great food, excellent beer and wine and the friendliest staff you can find. We go there A Lot and have never been disappointed.

Great meal, food was really tasty - only fault is the Brussels were not cooked, they must have just seen the water! Other than that, very enjoyable, good staff and lovely festive décor and atmosphere. I'm going again this week for another one so definitely...More
