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

Meet Milo, the Whalebone’s latest Dog of the Month.

Milo belongs to two of our regulars, Charlie and Emma, and is a one year old Blue Staffie who’s full of energy and personality.

Staffies are often given a bad name, but Milo is a great example of what loving and loyal dogs they really can be when they have the right owners.

Being an exuberant youngster, Milo is a fan of absolutely everything and everyone, but he’s a treat-seeking missile when it comes to biscuits; that’s what’s holding his undivided attention for the photo! He knows he’s in line for a treat whenever he visits us, and he knows that Rob, our Bar Manager, is a soft touch when it comes our canine visitors so there’s a very good chance he’ll be getting more than one!

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 keep you smiling too.
