About The Spotted Dog


Tom and ClaireThe Spotted Dog, in the heart of the thriving Hertfordshire village of Flamstead, has been a public house since the c1800, now in 2018 this characterful historic building has been carefully renovated to be a warmly inviting space in which to relax and linger. Your hosts Claire and Tom warmly invite you to enjoy great food, fine ales and wines along with quality coffee from the morning café, Coffeedog.

Your friendly dogs and welly boots are welcome in the bar area where a warming fire will be roaring in the winter months. Relax on our unique reclaimed furniture from the 50s and 60s and be inspired by our selection of coffee table books, magazines, newspapers and even board games.

Our pub has two dining areas, the main dining area with up to thirty four covers caters for parties of various sizes and is adaptable for other functions such as weddings, wakes, club dinners and even Burns night! Our intimate private dining area is available for parties of up to fourteen and can be used for meetings, book clubs and to view selected sporting events on a big screen. A delightful intimate courtyard garden is open for an alfresco dining experience.

The-Spotted-Dog-tableOur menu is crafted from locally sourced ingredients. Quality meat from a local butcher also comes from fully traceable origins and has the minimum amount of food miles possible. All dishes are made fresh to order by our rosette standard head chef s and up and coming sous chef from Jamies Italian kitchen.

We strive to operate in an environmentally friendly way as possible, banking with the village Post Office, employing local staff, using low energy equipment where possible, recycling furniture and interior fittings. Our fine regular ales are brewed in Tring with guest beers mainly coming from  local brewers. Our exclusive wines are sourced from Edwards, a family run firm based in Leighton Buzzard all trying to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible.

We hope to welcome you soon to enjoy our hospitality.
