  • Great pub and very dog friendly


    My friends and I recently had a lovely lunch at The Monkey House the food was superb as usual and even though we arrived with two dogs we were warmly welcomed and had a large roomy table in the main bar area. Our lovely waitress bought a large bowl of water for the dogs and then gave them both treats. So many pubs push you into a dark and dingy corner with dogs but at The Monkey House we couldn't have been made any more welcome. Well done
