A very warm welcome from Jim and Debbie at the Black Dog, combined with a great room rate which includes a huge breakfast. An excellent place to stay for those wanting to explore the surrounding countryside. I thoroughly recommend staying here.

Lovely staff. Very warm welcome. Nice, clean and cosy. Food wasn't the best I've eaten. There was no sirlion steak or fish and chips which was what we wanted. Settled for burger and scampi. Both were ok but did not finish either meal. Stale chips....More

In 2016, the pub underwent an extensive refurbishment and now offers, what we believe to be the finest dining experience available in the area. Careful attention was given to retain the original characteristics of the building but still providing a contemporary feel inside showcasing an open fire, cosy en-suite accommodation rooms, outside beer garden in the lovely countryside area of Belmont Village. The country pub has added a new menu complimented with Gastro pub specials, a mouth-watering ice-cream parlour accompanied with freshly made desserts that is served throughout the year. For the drinkers, the pubs offers a vast array of premium spirits, selected fine wines and world beers to quench all taste buds.
