Dined at the Dores with dear friends. My Haggis was sublime and the mussels lived up to their reputation. Black pudding fritters are also wonderful as were our friends fish and chips. Lovely friendly service

Hard to tell. There is not too much room inside because it is an old house. I guess it also depends on the size of the dog. It could work if you book a table in a corner. Or consult the patrons first.
