The Spotted Dog is a tasteful pub quite out of the run-of-the-mill. The friendly reception and menu were simply excellent. The menu is perhaps not as wide ranging as some but the quality and value are superb and all plates are freshly prepared. The Pastas are excellent and the crayfish and Smoked Salmon on a bed of warm potato salad with basil and balsamic reduction dressing simply burst with flavour. The value for money is excellent and the whole of a quality that would command twice the price elsewhere.
