Welcome to the Spotted Dog

The Spotted Dog is located in the popular village of Cold Ash near Thatcham, Berkshire. Now back in the hands of Kevin & Caz, they offer a warm welcome to everyone in their family friendly pub and restaurant. The Spotted Dog has a large private car park & newly enclosed garden and playground, safe for children & dogs. We do welcome dogs (See below), providing they are nice, clean and dry.
However in order not to upset our diners we DO NOT allow dogs into the pub throughout the times any food is being served.

Open daily, we serve a selection of real ales & a variety of wines, spirits & soft drinks. We offer locally sourced, fresh home cooked food, with a menu produced by Head Chef, John Cowan, that delivers a great selection of food; from light bites to a full 3 course meal.
