Have been to The Kingfisher three times recently, twice for food. All I can say is the food, the staff, the service and the surroundings are all great. Well done to The Kingfisher.

Hi There. Thanks for your email. Yes we are dog friendly. The only place they can't go is in the restaurant. But you can bring them in and eat or drink in the bar area. Thank you.
