When you visit the Whalebone look out for Harvey the Labrador. He belongs to Steve the General Manager and will be your friend for life if you share a piece of our delicious Pork Crackling with him!

Harvey is generally a placid old boy but he is not a great fan of puppies. With this in mind, please allow Harvey to approach them rather than allowing them to approach him!

Four legged friends are all welcome at the Whalebone so long as their owners are on a lead and well behaved. Don’t forget to ask at the bar for something from the treat jar for your trusty companion.

Please note; not all of our customers are as fond of dogs as we are so could we please ask that they are kept on a lead at all times and that you bring a blanket or a coat to put down on the chairs if your four legged friends are used to their home comforts and will be sharing them with you. Thank you.

Dog of the Month

Introducing Doris, the Whalebone’s latest Dog of the Month.

Doris is an incredibly friendly Staffie who has just celebrated her tenth birthday and regularly brings her owner, Nick, in for a pint or two as his reward for taking her walkies!

Doris is a massive fan of tennis balls, and can often be seen in the pub carrying one, although if you catch her at the local park there’s a fair chance she’ll have two or three of them in her mouth, although she willingly surrenders them if there’s a chance that a treat might be coming her way.

Luckily we always have a jar of treats at the bar to keep your four-legged friends happy, along with a wide selection of quality drinks and snacks to hopefully keep you smiling too.
