About the Pub

A new parlour pub which opened in December 2015. A sympathetically re-created good old-fashioned pub in a classic Georgian setting.

Not immediately obvious that a pub is there, look for the No. 14 door and the subtle lamp above, if the lamp is lit then the pub is open. A small corridor leads you into the lobby area which connects the two main rooms. At the back of the building is the kitchen bar with a solid oak counter set on the remains of an old shed roof! The room is adorned with collected pub artefacts, though the usual impression of the room one is left with is the buzz of traditional pub conversation. The front room of the house is the parlour, with decor straight out of a Conan Doyle novel.

The pub name encapsulates several different elements. Part of the former Royal forest which surrounded Ludlow was known as the 'Dog Hanging' woods. This was down to the practice of deterring poachers via the display of confiscated hunting dogs. Also, the pub owner founded the Doghouse magazine. The name also brings to mind the 'Gate Hangs Well’. a once popular pub name which fits in with Ludlow's seven medieval gates of which only Broad Gate remains.

Initially selling a cask of beer a day, so each session there tends to be a different beer. In its short lifespan so far beers have already been seen from 50 different breweries, many of which are relatively new names to the brewery world (July 2016).

Note that under-16s are not permitted, neither is smoking anywhere in the vicinity of the pub (including e-cigs). In keeping with the ambience, mobile phones are also prohibited from being used on the premises.
