    Prepare for the usual moans and groans about the dogs being elderly and having conservative leanings.

    Well all the dogs are elderly and I would think at least 75% of them have conservative leanings (like their owners eh Rob)

    Kings Head, Queens Head, Horse & Jockey (town centre, not Tamworth Road), Angel Inn, George IV, Earl of Lichfield, BeerBohm, Whippet Inn, Greyhound, George & Dragon are all dog friendly too, as is Faro Lounge. Ive been in them all with my dog anyway! These researchers didn’t do a very thorough job!
