A Dog’s Life
21st June 2016
Planning a trip with a dog can be a challenge. One question that often has the owner pausing for thought is where to eat. Thankfully, it is simpler than you might think – or at least this is certainly the case in the South of England. The warm convivial atmosphere at Bel & The Dragon means guests on both two and four legs are quickly made to feel at home. What’s more, there are no breed or size restrictions (one of our regular guests is a Great Dane). All we ask is that you find a table in the bar or outside.

Tuck into a traditional Sunday lunch with all the trimmings washed down with a complimentary Sipsmith London Cup or Bel Bloody Caesar (if the British weather is being temperamental) and retire to one of our luxury en-suite bedrooms.
