Firstly I would like to say having read other reviews - why should a pub serving food be expected to be dog friendly! When we invite people round to dinner, we don't say - bring your dog with you! And I'am a dog lover, but...More

Questions & Answers
In response to the 'managers' reply to my review. First off, I am no ex employee, nor a friend or family of an ex employee. Second. My first post was not slander, it is fact. Your staff can do& say what they like to the customers, and they have no consequences, unfortunately what consequences there are, fall on the customers, even when a customer is innocent. I say again, I saw what happened on band night. I saw a barmaid threaten a customer, I saw said barmaid put on her water works, and storm off, to the point she stalled her car 4/5 times out of anger. I also seen the so called owner of the pub abuse and pointing fingers into the customers face. I can name the barmaid for everyone to see if necessary? As well as the owner. I would also like to point out your last comment on my review. You say to return or not to return, you're happy to take my money. This is not a very mature comment at all, and if anything, proves to everyone that you have no concern for your customers. I'm glad you have posted a picture of my previous review, because people shall see how disappointing it is, that not only the staff think it's okay to abuse customers, but so do the owners.
