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.
