Other info: The pub serves food until 6pm but the last booking is 5:30pm there will be NO FOOD at the event proper but if you wish to eat first then you MUST call on the above number to book a table.

The pub is dog friendly in the bar area so you can't eat and have your dog t with you but the event will mainly around the bar and have at least one dog so you are more than welcome to bring your geohounds!
