We have been totally dog friendly for the 16 years we have run it, and on occasion have had more pooches than people in the pub. We provide water, treats and towels to our furry friends. I am so pleased that the furies bring their walking companions for a walk to The Poachers. We have complaints that the owners are dragged in – unwillingly and have to drink beer whilst the pooches get pampered.

    A fabulous pub with a great range of cask ales. Wholesome Food served. A beer garden if it’s sunny and a roaring fire in the winter. The owners are big dog lovers and welcome all dogs and their walkers!

    Towels to dry your dog on the way in after a walk, a roaring fire for them to lie in front of, fresh drinking water on arrival and even Poachers Pooch packs for sale to give your dog a treat! What more can I say. My vote goes to the Poachers!

    Lots of doggies go in the Poachers and have a lovely time. They get nice bowls of water and a biscuit and have clean towels to wipe their paws on. It’s lovely for them to be able to accompany their humans to the pub.

    More dogs than people most of the time, which makes it the best pub to be in! Lovely, welcoming and relaxed.

    From 8 weeks old for our gorgeous boy Jack this has been his second home. Rob and Helen are the most dog friendly landlords we know. From pooch bags to poo bags fluffy towels to wipe down your soggy pooch to a pint of the best bolly water served by one of the fantastic girls behind the bar. Our four legged friends are never left out,cuddles and pats and a doze in front of the roaring fire after a cold winters walk. This place is amazing..
