CHARACTER & STYLE

The décor is enjoyably old school, featuring leather banquettes and bookshelves. There are nods to the area's tennis heritage. Downstairs is a large pub, and its series of smaller and more private spaces adds a sense of cosiness. During the winter months enjoy the open fire, while in the summer, make the most of the outdoor terrace.

THE FACILITIES

The staff are friendly, with everyone from the receptionist to the restaurant's duty manager offering attentive and personal service. As this is a pub-with-rooms, there are no facilities, other than several function rooms used for weddings and other events.

Food & Drink

The ground-floor pub offers an impressive gin list, plus classic cocktails and local beers. The dining room serves some genuinely excellent pub grub - such as burgers, ploughmans and roasts on Sundays. A pub can be judged by the quality of its fish and chips, and here they are reliably excellent - the beer-battered haddock as crispy as the accompanying triple-fried potatoes. Try the feta and spinach arancini to start, too.

Dog & Fox: elegant pub and restaurant, British cuisine, seasonal menus. All-day dining, open daily. Mains from £16.
