Pub is okay as a local pub, floor is dirty looking. Whole pub is dreary and needs updating and made lighter. Food never comes out hot. Staff are always changing every week. You have door staff at weekends due to constant trouble

When we were refused service in July 2017, they said the policy had been in a year but we have taken our dog on numerous occasions and he is only 18 months old. Will never set foot in the place again

Am not sure. Probably 9pm. The rear dining area is large and families are not not intrusive to the bar area. We tend to go during the day and early evening when children are well catered for
