It was The Ashes Friday and when I made my first visit to The Dog House - the sun was shining and the pub has a good amount of outside seating, food was being served and the cricket was being shown on a big screen, it couldn't have got much better! I have to praise the kitchen, I was completely surprised by the quality of the food. My friend and I did bounce around the usual pub grub options but what we had was a real delight – we shared two small plates being a super food salad and a smoked mackerel dish, with a main of poached eggs, spinach, potato rosti, mushrooms and spring onions, it really was dreamy!! We chose from a menu that’s very different to that shown on their website, so perhaps changes are afoot in the kitchen. It was a really good quality feed.
I was a big fan of the pub generally, friendly, accommodating staff, big screen, outside space, good food, and an upstairs function room… it’s ticking boxes and I look forward to a revisit.
