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 Nikita, the Whalebone’s latest Dog of the Month.

Nikita belongs to two of our regulars, Sherilee and Keith, and is a six month old Rottweiler crossed with a quarter English Bull Mastiff.

Although she’s rapidly turning into a really big girl, Nikita has been coming in to the Whalebone since she was twelve weeks old and small enough to sit in your hand… As beautiful as she is, you would certainly know all about it if she sat on you now!

Nikita loves everybody she meets, although she’s always extra fond of anyone who might have a tasty treat or two for her: she is after all a growing a girl.

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.
