This Dog’s bark is definitely worse than its bite, with lucky guests able to sink their teeth into a delicious seasonal range of unfussy, good value dishes according to the Michelin Guide

The Guide adds that speciality hunting guests should enter the whitewashed Dog & Gun with lobster thermidor cannelloni; venison suet pudding, triple-cooked chips and greens and Cumbrian honey parfait with raspberries and honeycomb firmly in their crosshairs.

For those looking to satisfy both their wanderlust and tastebuds, the Dog and Gun is within shooting distance of Grade I listed country house Hutton-in-the-Forest with arts venue the Upfront Gallery and Puppet Theatre less than a three-minute drive away.
