Re-vamped and re-opened in 2021, The Spotted Dog is the combined efforts of a small group of locals who simply wanted to see their village pub back open so they could enjoy a drink and have some good old fashioned banter!

Throw in one of London's finest, Mark Jarvis as Exec Chef, add in his protégé, Murry Lane as Head Chef, and voila, you now have a local village pub that serves outstanding food too!

Ably led by General Manager Garry Lewis and his team, we're delighted to welcome you to enjoy local beers, excellent wines and outstanding food whilst enjoying the cosy surrounds of a local village pub.

Visiting dogs are made as equally welcome as their two legged friends, with water bowls and biscuit treats available in the front bar only.

Quality sourced ingredients

We pride ourselves on only using quality sourced ingredients which have been curated from some of the finest suppliers near and far.

Cosy surroundings

Originally built as a house in the 1700's, The Spotted Dog was converted into a pub in 1826 (one of eight pubs in Flamstead at that time). Fast forward almost 200 years and over thirty landlords later, it still retains the same name today. The pub has been carefully restored to provide a rustic and cosy environment for you to enjoy a coffee in the morning and either a small plate from our bar menu, or something more substantial from our seasonal lunch and dinner menu, whilst still being able to enjoy your favourite tipple!
