Positive Reviews

Good quality dining

Although a small number of guests found the dining area a little cramped, the majority have only good things to say about dining at the Dog & Doublet Inn. Breakfast is rated especially highly, with guests particularly appreciate of the fact that it's available until 11am.

Comfortable and spacious rooms

Guests consistently find the rooms at this pub offer a good standard of accommodation, with many describing them as clean and spacious. A small number of guests mention that they found the beds uncomfortable but others found they offered a good night's sleep, so it seems that this is a matter of personal preference.

Friendly staff create a good atmosphere

Previous guests have found the staff at the Dog & Doublet Inn to offer a friendly and attentive service, commenting that they found the warm nature of the staff helped to create an inviting atmosphere in the property.

Negative Reviews

No reception area

A small number of guests mention the lack of a reception area. When you arrive, you'll have to go into the bar and get the attention of a member of staff. Some guests felt a bit like a spare part while waiting for staff to finish serving drinks to other people.

Some noise from the road

Given that this inn is situated right next to the A51, it won't be too surprising that guests occasionally mention traffic noise. While the problem doesn't appear to be excessive, the lack of double glazing doesn't exactly help matters.

A bit pricey

While many guests found the room rates here reasonable, others thought the cost of the rooms was a bit pricey. The rooms are of a good standard but they are essentially rooms above a pub. For that reason, not every guest finds the inn offers value for money.
