Lunch with a friend. Fixed price menu. Service was above and beyond. I asked, out of the blue, for something not on the menu and it was produced immediately and at no additional cost.

We enjoyed a totally excellent meal and visit together with our two friends yesterday.. Although some distance away from us it is always worth the time and cost for us to have lunch or dinner at the Spotted Dog. Not only was our visit thoroughly enjoyable, they had gone to a great deal of trouble to follow all the present coronavirus requirements. We are looking forward to our next visit already!

We loved dining at the Duck and now the Spotted Dog . Maybe the vegetable selection could vary a little, otherwise we like everything exactly as it is. Looking forward to our next visit.

We were looking forward so much to returning to the Spotted Dog and it is back after lockdown better than ever. We tried some new dishes from the menu and they were delicious! The food is so fresh and i love all the veggies that come with the main course. I couldn’t resist a desert so with that and a very large glass of wine, I was very happy! The staff are always so friendly too it makes lunch out a real treat! Thank you

We have been coming to The Spotted Dog for a few years and the food never disappoints. We had the set menu this time, with plenty of choice and excellent value. The service is always excellent. It was great to be able to go “out out” again. Great to see plenty of sanitiser and safe distancing with masks in place. We both had a fabulous experience. Thank you so much

We have been going to this restaurant reasonable regularly for about 6 years. We return because it is good. However, I don’t think the dishes have changed in this time and the vegetables are always the same. They are always tasty and well-cooked but something apart from carrot, parsnip, red cabbage and potatoes would make a welcome change. We will continue to visit but a change of menu would be welcome.

superb food as always. As it was a weekday lunchtime visit & not over busy I could hear the background sound of fridges/appliances etc (not loud) but why not make the ambience really great by always having nice music on @ a set quiet volume? I go to many restaurants and have great food, but when people stop talking it's quiet! music (right type & volume) is a big thing to make your experience great not just good. I could see speakers on the wall - why not use them?

Food is good but a bit pricey compared to other restaurants who serve basic Sunday lunch. Ambiance was nice but not extraordinary, as expected from the standard expexted. Some outside maintenance was lacking. Grass uncut, entrance door needed some repair. All in all I would not put this restaurant on the top of my next restaurant visit on that standard. The waiting service was good. Maybe this restaurant was on par with other pub restaurants serving British food.
