 The Restaurant – Laineys @ The Dog Inn

Following on from the successful collaboration with Eat Pennines and the Eagle and Child, we are pleased to announce that we have come to an agreement with Laineys Catering, who will be running the restaurant on our behalf in the future. Lorraine Corey of Laineys has considerable experience in the catering industry, having owned and run a pub previously, as well as a tapas bar.

Laineys will be open from Thursday to Saturday, from 12 – 2.30pm and from 6 – 9pm, and on Sundays from 12 noon – 7pm, and will be offering a selection of British and Mediterranean cuisine.

They intend to carry on from Eat Pennines by using locally sourced produce wherever possible. They also plan to offer an exciting three-course Christmas menu with interesting alternatives to the traditional turkey – more details to follow soon.

Food service will start on Thursday 7th September, so make sure you pop in to try it out! Please see here for the menu.
