The best pub and walk combination in Southampton
This is Bruce's favourite place to go for a nice off-lead walk - it's a huge expanse of land, allowing for lots of exploring. Depending on the time of day it's heaving with other dogs (mostly off lead), which Bruce loves - but if your dog is nervous around others, you may want to avoid.
The pub is very busy during the summer, usually with at least 4-5 other dogs inside and out. The food is good, especially the lunchtime sandwiches. There's also dog bowls available for water.
As the listing says, dogs are only allowed in the bar and outside - not in the restaurant. Worth taking into account if you're thinking of visiting in an evening, as when it's busy, the bar can fill up quite quickly. However, we've never struggled to get a table.
