I needed somewhere to dine after a day out, only problem I have is 4 dogs, I rang the establishment a few days before and the answer was yes, no problem, table was booked for 5.30 Saturday afternoon, our day finished a bit early so we arrived about one and a half hours before, this was not a problem, we had a few drinks before the meal. Food was very good, staff were excellent and the owners very accommodating for our dogs. Would highly recommend the Canary and Linnet, will definitely be going back.

Normally use this as a stopping off place for walking the dog. However the atmosphere has attracted us back for many light lunches which have always been excellent. Was taken there again for father's day but for full Sunday lunch. Absolutely Brilliant, highly recommended.
