I or we have been in this pub for lunch on and off for a year or two and always the food is to a excellent standard.It is certainly a place where diverse people go which in itself says a lot.I like the quirkiness of the decor. The range of real ales are a bonus and kept and served correctly. Long may it serve Whalley and it's visitors.

Had a ladies lunch here today and we were very surprised how good it was as looking around the pub area there were stuffed animals, old fashioned ornaments, clocks etc but all very clean and traditional.

I ordered the breaded mushroom starter which were delicious and the garlic mayonnaise was to die for. One of my friends had the celery and Stilton soup and although she enjoyed it she said it could have done with more Stilton flavor in it. Our mains were a variety. I had the steak and kidney with the Yorkshire pudding, vegetables and chips and it was delicious. All round clean plates. We will definitely return

I came here for Sunday lunch with my parents. The food surpassed my expectations of pub fayre. I can honestly say that the vegetable soup was one of the tastiest and most substantial starters I have ever eaten. We all enjoyed or food which was fresh and tasty and very good value for money. The Dog Inn also lives up to it'd name as it is very canine friendly. There is also a great selection of real ales and regular varieties of beer. I can't fault it at all and I'm really looking forward to my next visit.

We dropped in here on our way from Clitheroe to Old Langho. The staff and locals here were without a doubt the most welcoming and helpful than in any other hotel we visited. While we had neither children or dogs with us, for those travelling with either I would recommend this as a place to stop.

Three of the lovely local gentlemen drew us a map of a fabulous short cut home through church yards, over fences and through paddocks!

The Dog Inn is the best of the four hotels in the very picturesque village of Whalley, with a lovely old Abbey, tea shops, friendly locals. Well worth a visit.

This pub is in the centre of of the lovely small Town of Whalley. The pub and toilets are clean, and we ate with our dogs next to a lovely open fire, in an 'oldy worldy' atmosphere. The staff are very friendly, and the menu and special board caters for meat eaters and vegetarians. The food is well presented, portions are well sized, very tasty, and the prices are very reasonable too. There is a good selection of cask ales in tip top condition. We had our caravan, at a fantastic site two miles away (Bridge Heywood Caravan Park), which we are so impressed with we will be back, and that means a return to the Dog Inn, brilliant!

Of the four very fine pubs at the centre of Whalley village, the Dog is definitely the best for the range of beers on offer. Six hand pumps, serving an ever-changing mix of beers from (mainly North-Western) breweries. That said, on today's visit the range was slightly less adventurous than it has been of late - Copper Dragon Black Gold, Moorhouse Pride of Pendle, Grays Hunny Pot, Bank Top Old Slapper, and both Lions Roar and Treacle Stout from Ossett - but at £2.40 a pint, whatever strength the beer, who's complaining?

A good variety of beers and ales, good food is available daily in a friendly venue. Right in the centre of town with other pubs nearby if you're keen to move on later for a change of scenery.

What a fantastic discovery this place was! I visited this real-ale heaven of a pub on a Saturday night out with my brother in Whalley, and we didn't go anywhere else it was that good!

The beer range was extensive and superbly maintained and served, every pint that we had was top notch. For you beer afficianados, they had (amongst others) Hopstar Lancashire Gold, Moorhouses Black Witch (an autumnal favorite!), Tirril Old Faithful, Rossendale Golden Halo, and Wakefield Fernandes.

The ambience in the place was really welcoming, with good seats in the corners if you are after quiet, no rowdiness at all, just people (mostly older ones, admittedly!) enjoying a decent beer in decent surroundings.

If only there was a pub like this in every town.

The Dog is a traditional and friendly local in the heart of Whalley in the Ribble Valley. It offers basic pub grub and has a pool room, beer garden and jukebox. I often visit when I'm back home and I never fail to have a nice few drinks with friends at the Dog. It has a lively atmosphere on a Friday and Saturday night and is occasionally frequented by some interesting individuals - but that in my opinion is what village pubs are all about. Great pub and cheap too! Bargain.
