We are two beer loving, family types who met whilst involved in a boozer up the road decided to expand on our own and set on a new adventure.

We Love Dogs

We are sure you will get to meet our Mr. Watson. He is a white and ginger Jack and can be quite barky in the barking department. The barking is random and we ask that you just ignore him. He is a very friendly boy and once he has met and liked you, chances are you will receive a joyous welcome next time. Or not. Depends what mood he is in. Visit Mr Watson’s page to find out more…
