The Dog Inn is sorry to announce that our manager, Emma, will be leaving us at the beginning of May. We would like to thank Emma for everything she has done for The Dog Inn and Belthorn. We wish her well for the future




We are currently seeking to recruit a talented and enthusiastic individual to lead a small team of paid staff and large pool of volunteers to continue with the development of our successful community-owned pub. This opportunity will demand hard work and unsociable hours, but managing the first community owned pub in Lancashire will be enormously rewarding for the right candidate. Please download the manager application pack.


Coffee Shop Volunteers

We are always on the look out for volunteers to work in Patrick’s coffee shop, be it on a regular or occasional basis. If you would like to join the team, please call in and ask for further details or contact us by email, phone or via our Facebook page.

Free WiFi is available to all of our customers, just ask at the bar or the coffee shop for the current access code.
