you've got questions, we've got answers

here's a selection of questions we've been asked over the last few months...

THE DOGGOS

do you allow dogs in your pub? we can't believe this is a question. YES. the answer is always yes. we love dogs. maybe too much. you be the judge.

is there a designated space for them? no. they're not shafted to a particular area. dogs, and their well-behaved pawrents, are allowed anywhere in the pub.

do you have snacks for our canine friends? right now, we've got a selection of biscuits (normal, grain-free and ones designed specifically for puppies). we'll be branching out our paw-ffering soon. 

but what about water? we have bowls everywhere. if you weren't offered one when you walked in, just ask at the bar.

will dave be there to great my furiends? obvs. except some weekends where he goes on holiday to his grandpawrents. maybe we should put a flag up like the Queen does so you know when he's in residence...

why do Dachshunds lie in the shade? because they don’t want to be hot-dogs.

FOOD, GLORIOUS FOOD

are you doing food? after a long, long wait, the kitchen is finally open. 

nice one, but when do you serve food? every day from 12-3pm and 6-10pm. weekend evenings are a little different to the rest of the week, so make sure you check you're on the right menu before you order.

ok, but what kind of food are we talking about here? mostly things you don't need a fork & knife for. so think along the lines of home-made bar snacks and sharing plates. #sharingiscaring

will you cater for vegans and vegetarians? you betcha. our menu isn't very big, but we'll definitely have something for those that enjoy a plant-based meal. 

what about those who are gluten and dairy intolerant? we will 100% have gluten and dairy free options. don't you worry.

will you be open for lunch? absolutely. in addition to our usual menu, we'll also be offering freshly made salads. you can expect these to change throughout the year depending on what's in season. we're just trying to keep you on your toes.

I'm too busy and important to spend an hour at the pub for lunch, can you help with that? we can't help you manage your diary better, but we can offer take-away and pre-ordering. just drop us an email and we'll hook you up.

THIRSTY? SAMES

do you serve real ales? it wouldn't be a proper pub if we didn't. of our four pumps, two rotate each week and the other two are residential - Courage Best Bitter and our own EPA called "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere".

what if I'm not into ales? we've got a pretty legit selection on tap (Brixton Altantic, Beavertown Neck Oil, Birra Moretti and Old Mout Berries & Cherries to name a few) and a cracking selection of bottles and cans. pop in and have a look for yourself.

cool, but I'm really into my gins. what's on offer? a little bit of everything from Pink Pepper, to Aviation, to Monkey 47. we're always expanding our portfolio, but we guarantee we'll have something you'll like. #ginteresting

ok, let's talk about rum... we're all over it. and we're always on the look out for new and wonderful things. have we not told you how much we love Pineapple Grenade?!

what's your wine situation? we work with one of the best small suppliers in the country to bring you a menu that's a bit different than your average pub. we still offer fan favourites like Pinot Grigio, but similar to the rest of our portfolio, we're always changing things up.

I'm not into boozing, what do you offer? we have Heineken 0.0%, Old Mout Berries & Cherries 0.0%, Ghost Ship 0.5% and a completely alcohol free (and organic) Prosecco. we also have a fine selection of mocktails and soft drinks. including our fave Barr Cream Soda.

I need my daily caffeine fix, can you help me out? we've got you covered. we do coffees (hot or iced), teas, hot chocolates and chai tea lattes. and we do them in biodegradable take-away cups, in case you need to get scooting. #winning
