The Dog Inn was situated on the western side of Victoria Street, not far from the Nags Head. In the 1891 and 1903 licensing books it is listed as a free house owned by William Jones. The annual rateable value was set at £25.0s.0d.  ‘Last orders’ were called at 11 pm each night. The Dog Inn had passed into the ownership of the voracious Wickwar Brewery (Arnold, Perrett & Co. Ltd.) by 1904.

The landlord of the Dog Inn, George Morgan, was convicted and fined 20/- plus costs for being drunk on his own premises on April 4th 1904. He had been in trouble a year before for ‘selling beer to an under 14-year old in an inadequately sealed bottle’, although he was acquitted on that occasion.

The Dog Inn closed in 1926.
