The Foresters Arms, nr Roman Road is brilliant as it is totally dog friendly. Food and drink served too! Great Sunday roast and parking down the roads or in two car parks opposite. Dogs are welcome at all times and all over the pub. Friendly staff and people.

"Maybe try an Executive Room"
"Please please please read what others are saying,as their points are valid."
"Lower floors seem to have better WiFi"
"Rooms at the front may be subject to late-night noise on Friday/Saturday nights. Rooms at the back are much quieter."
"I would imagine that rooms not facing the High Street are quieter. Mine faced the rear car park and was very quiet."
US$66 - US$117 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
