Spotted Dog

The Spotted Dog is a true village local where you will find a warm welcome, real ale and good food. It will be open on the day of the Barry Norman special event as usual. As it is likely to be busy, you are advised to book a table for dinner in advance, whether  before or after the event.

You can find the Spotted Dog in the High Street, Flamstead, AL3 8BS. It is located in the village centre very close to the church and the village hall where the Festival is taking place.

It has recently been extensively refurbished and the sign in the photo is about to be replaced!
