My partner booked here for us to stay as I just fancied a chilled night child free, we had a lovely room, very spacious and clean. We enjoyed an evening meal, few drinks and a very comfortable sleep. The staff and manager couldn't do enough for us, we were asked what time we wanted breakfast which was lovely and fresh.... More

The black dog is essentially a pub and the menu generally reflects that, but it is pub grub done really well. We all opted for the hanging kebabs and they were delicious and well presented, accompanied by a generous amount of side salad. The chips were tasty too although a little dry. Desserts were excellent, the hardest part was deciding... More

I went to The Black Dog for the first time for lunch recently. Menu best described as slightly posh pub grub. Things like puff pastry topped pies, burgers, fish and chips etc on offer. I had the hanging kebab, which at just under £12 was one of the more expensive items. Bit tricky to eat, but well cooked and tasty.... More

Called in on spec and were made very welcome, the main restaurant area was fully booked but the pub area was comfortable and were told we could sit anywhere which is refreshing as often you get the worst seats. Promptly served and the menu had a good variety from pasta, steaks, burgers,pies and specials. We had baguettes of steak and... More

Just visited the pub by accident.. we'd been for a long walk up Rivington Pike and googled nearby pubs for Sunday dinner- luckily the black dog came up so I called up and spoke to Rachel who reserved us the only available table in the bar as we had dogs with us. The food was beautiful and fast but what... More

Description
In 2016, the pub underwent an extensive refurbishment and now offers, what we believe to be the finest dining experience available in the area. Careful attention was given to retain the original characteristics of the building but still providing a contemporary feel inside showcasing an open fire, cosy en-suite accommodation rooms, outside beer garden in the lovely countryside area of Belmont Village. The country pub has added a new menu complimented with Gastro pub specials, a mouth-watering ice-cream parlour accompanied with freshly made desserts that is served throughout the year. For the drinkers, the pubs offers a vast array of premium spirits, selected fine wines and world beers to quench all taste buds.
