The food in the Hairy Dog was great. the one barman was a bit grumpy but that didn't spoil the occasion at all. The pub was large and it had a kids play area.

Popped in for a quick lunch was completely unimpressed. Staff were busy chatting behind the bar. Tables were littered with dirty glasses. Took the children outside to the play area it was filthy. Certainly will not be visiting againMore
