The words ‘dog friendly’ are used a lot these days and that’s great, except there few ways of telling exactly how dog friendly a bar, restaurant or hotel is? This is important, because it’s your best friend we are talking about here!
So we decided to ask our own dogs, George and Milly, for their perspective on how friendly we are at The Fox.
“It’s great when new people arrive with their dogs! We love meeting new dogs! We like to greet them into our hotel and show them around so that they know where all the water bowls are. We also let them know that there are dog biscuits at the bar - very important!
“Then there are the regulars - people, that is. They all like dogs and are very friendly. A lot of them have their own dogs with them too, so there’s lots of company.
“We dogs love our humans though, so it’s good to know that we can stay with them in their (our) room and sleep safe. Plus, there are three eating areas in the restaurant, so we are allowed to be in one of them with our owners when they are eating - it has even been known for our owners to cook something special for our doggy guests!
“What’s more, the countryside around here is like a dog paradise. It’s just brilliant for walks and our owners can show guest owners some really great ones from a special book. At the end, all you want to do is sleep!
“The next thing our owners are doing for our dog guests is building a wet room just for dogs. Lush! Special showers and proper dog dryers will be ready at the end of October!”
So that’s what George and Milly think, but why not try for yourself? Bring the dog or dogs for a lovely Autumn break - we have lots of special deals too, like three nights for two in November!
PS. Just to say, we have rooms and restaurant space that are dog-free if you wish. We wouldn’t want to discriminate against humans, now would we!

"We had a marvellous stay and would like to thank you again for your hospitality."
Ammy's Delight is a small business which makes home made dog biscuits. All biscuits are made using the best ingredients we can get. That means free range eggs from our own chicken, free range chicken breast and no added artificial ingredients, sugar or salt. We use only 100% natural ingredients.
