Back in civilisation meant there was the prospect of a bite and a pint somewhere - the first establishment 'sold' itself as a, "real pub with real ale and a real welcome". That welcome is, of course, dependant on you not having a dog with you. If you choose not to allow dogs that's fine, but PLEASE don't tell me it's against the law if you serve food, because it isn't. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
Wandered up a bit to the rather trendy looking Ship Inn and a man up a ladder said they did have real ale, real food and a real welcome that included dogs - they were spot on and the food was stunning.
