We stopped for lunch and had crab sandwich and tea. We sat indoors but they also have a garden. The food was really good and service prompt. We arrived just after 12 and noticed it did get busier, so would recommend arriving early.

I think it would be fine to have a dog outside as there's a lot of outside seating but probably not inside, but I'm not certain. I think it's a better place to be in fine weather so outside I guess.
