Well everyone knows Russell our Golden Retriever. Born 2015 he didn’t have the best start but he made our family complete when he came to us at 4 months old. He took to pub life immediately and we don’t just mean the abundance of pork scratchings and treats he’s offered but all the tummy rubs and human kindness that are on tap every day. We do always stress though if dogs aren’t your thing then just let us know and with Russell told he’ll leave you well alone. Russell is discouraged of course from going in to the dining room so if you want to say ‘hi’ then pop into the lounge to see him, avoid calling him in as he doesn’t like getting told off by his human guardians.
He loves the company of other dogs so if your four-legged friend is as happy as he is to see other dogs then pop down, we love seeing cute hounds of all shapes and sizes. Doggy treats are always here and always a bowl of our freshest hound H2O, should you also forget your poop bag then there’s always one available. Although Russell is not on a lead he is trained not to leave the pub, he doesn’t understand the word walkies as we use a code word. We do ask however that all gates are kept closed for the safety of children visiting us.
Nothing Micro about Lily & Blossom. They are referred to as the Duchesses, spoilt in every way. Pigs are by nature exceptionally friendly, but when they are hungry, they’re hungry, so as a safety precaution we have had a double gated enclosure built so little hands can’t make their way in and be nipped by mistake, we can’t lie, if an accident occurs it will hurt. So please don’t let little ones climb over the first gate, we do at various times open the first gate, so kids can have a supervised closer look but sadly entry into the actual pen is prohibited for animal welfare act reasons due to us being the business we are.
