Are young children allowed in the restaurant after, say, 7.30pm? For avoidance of doubt "no" would be my preferred answer! Some hate mail expected.

Hi are dogs accepted in rooms please? My parents are staying in October in the 'regular' double room and would like to bring their (well-behaved) dog with them if possible but are reluctant to ask the hotel direct as they fear they will be 'put out' by the request. Has anybody stayed here and kept the dog with them in the bedroom? Googling the pub gives mixed answers or only relates to the pub/bar itself.
