    A proper pub, a place that has all the feel and community of a local pub but with a modern twist. The drink is amazing and the owners of the brewery are very proud of what they create. Always a good time at the Borehole. Just when you think it can’t get better you can invite the dog awswell. Just an awesome pu..

    Very friendly dog pub, sometimes there are more dogs than humans! always doggy treats avalible and a nice log burner going in the cool winter days and nights. Some nice snacks for the humans too, like the famous Staffordshire oatcakes with melted cheese and bacon mmmmmmmm, worth a visit.
