Lonely Planet review

It’s hard not to warm to this cosy and very relaxed restaurant and bar in a former foundry building, christened after Laurel and Hardy’s dog (also a colloquialism for whisky). Recently steered in a lucratively fresh direction by new owners, this is a true gem, with a sure-fire menu that’s a combination of locally sourced food (cider-marinated lamb rump, pan-fried red mullet) and culinary talent from chef Michael Facey, with splendid roasts on Sunday. Few complain, many return for a second sitting.
