Although we weren’t 100% sure whether it was dog friendly when we stopped, we hoped that the name was a good sign that they might be… we were not disappointed!
Dogs are allowed inside in ‘the snug’, which is on the left as you go in through the main entrance, as well as in the gardens. It is quite roomy but maintains a cosy feel and we settled ourselves in a corner next to a family with their adorable 4 month old Westie. After a polite sniff, Elsa decided she was more interested in the dog treats provided at the bar… Dog beer was also available and they even have a special ‘Dog’s Dinners’ menu! See more here.
The human menu had a lot of pub favourites from fish & chips to steak. We had sausage & mash and pie & chips – both came as good sized portions and we enjoyed every bite. The greens were particularly tasty!
The sausages were from the nearby Cheerbrook Farm Shop which is definitely worth a visit, especially during BBQ season!
To finish we shared an ‘Allostock Mess’ with a coffee.
After lunch we walked along the road to Shakerley Mere following this route that we found on a flyer in the pub. We have been here before and were surprised to find how close it was… there is also a car park on site if you’d prefer to drive, but it only took a few minutes to get here from the pub itself.
Elsa found a beautiful dog memorial plaque
It took around half an hour to walk around and fortunately the sun came out. A very pleasant end to a lovely afternoon!
- Large car parks at both The Three Greyhounds Inn and Shakerley Mere
