Dear all.

Claire and I are having to take stock of our relationship with the pub and our commitment as parents to our wonderful daughters. As a consequence we are changing our service model and scaling back our operations at The Spotted Dog. From the beginning of November we will no longer be offering ‘walk in’ or booked evening dining. However we will still be serving lunch time meals and our superb Sunday lunch.

Going forward we will be arranging pop-up chef nights and our own catered events in the evenings along with pre booked parties and dinners.

Our Christmas menu is now available, however it will only be offered as a pre booked and pre ordered option with limited numbers. There will be no ‘walk in’ option in the evenings.

The pub will be open as usual until the New Year. In January we will be completing some building and remedial works so will be closing in the week, Monday to Thursday. This will not affect the Coffeedog opening hours, but there may be some disruption. We hope to fully re-open at the end of February with the offerings outlined above.

I hope this clears up any speculation and rumour as to what is happening with our pub. We have had to make some very difficult decisions recently and we thank you for your ongoing support and patronage.


Tom and Claire
