The Dog Inn was referred to in 1734. On 28th July 1882 it was included in the sale of property of the late Elizabeth Ann Hartley de Paliatano. The details describe the Dog Inn as a ‘fully licensed and much frequented public house with a newly erected brew house.’ By this time Old Sodbury had its own brewery run by Charles Smith. This brewery was situated further up the hill. (Hartley Arms?) The site is now occupied by a new house called the Maltings. The brewery was purchased in 1884 by James Mason Perrett. The Dog Inn was tied to James Perretts’  brewery. There was a carpenters workshop attached to the pub. When the railway was being constructed the Dog Inn was very popular with the ‘navvies.’ The pub had its own skittle alley.
