We cannot fault the Spotted Dog. The liver and bacon two of us had was tender, delicious and plentiful with tasty side vegetables. One of our friends had salmon and the other sea bass which were also spot on. The set lunch menu is definitely value for money and we'll be back again soon.

The restaurant was delightful with it’s welcome, we were shown to our table. The heating was just right and the wine waitress was swift to the table and took the drinks order. Next after a few minutes we were asked if we were ready to order which we were. The stater, main course, and dessert were of excellent size and cooked to perfection. We were asked by the waitress “how is your meal”. Definitely, will be going back in the next month. Have taken both family and friends to the restaurant over many years.

Superb as always. The only small thing I would like added to the menu is a vegeterian sauce without cream.

This was a long awaited lunch with a colleague I had not seen for 2 years, and I couldn't have picked a better spot. I liked the look and the layout of the pub and the staff were very friendly and attentive. We ordered from the set menu which featured 3 dishes for £20. Apart for it being a very good deal, I would have been happy with any of the choices offered. The food arrived promptly and was very enjoyable. I was also impressed by the Covid arrangements and felt safe and happy. I will certainly be visiting again.

Perhaps a few more vegetables and definitely some more potatoes. I had one on my plate. And my partner did not take all of the rest. There were not enough personally. However the food was very good.

Lovely meal experience by the party of four. The food was delicious and we were given time to choose. The service was the normal warm and welcoming service and very attentive staff. The setting is relaxed and comfortable. The value for money was good for the quality of food. Already booked our next visit

Lovely lunch with friends we hadn’t seen since last September! Food was excellent as always, great sauces and excellent value for money with the set menu. Anita and her team were very welcoming and service was just at the right level, not intrusive but efficient at the same time. Highly recommend without hesitation, Jane

The Spotted Dog is our favourite local restaurant and it is great to see they have survived the pandemic. It is well over a year since we ate out so we immediately knew it had to be at the Spotted Dog. We were not disappointed.
