Stopped for lunch before reaching hotel. Typical Wetherspoons menu and atmosphere. The pub had been decorated for Halloween. Worth a trip to the ladies when there. On site car parking.

Hi, I don't think dogs are allowed in any Wetherspoon pubs, sorry. As the other person said, there is a large seating area outside. Please don't let this put you off as it's a great pub.
