Throw yourself back to your school days with a naughty alcoholic twist at the Schoolhouse.

The Black Dog

120 user reviews

On the outside, The Black Dog looks like a cool British boozer. On the inside, though, it’s a contemporary British gastropub that you need to go to. The main string to their bow is their massive stocks of beer and wine, including ales and continental beers, but their kitchen isn’t something to avoid. Boasting a wide range of gastropub dishes, it’s impossible to leave there hungry.
