A St Albans pub has been named one as of the most dog-friendly in the east of England.

The John Bunyan on Coleman Green Lane has bagged third place in the Dog-friendly Pub Awards for the region.

It is ranked by the RSPCA, Snuffle Dog Beer, The Morning Advertiser, Your Dog Magazine, and the CEO of pooch sitting company DogBuddy, Richard Setterwall.

He said: “For the third year running, DogBuddy – with the help of dog lovers up and down the country - has been searching for the best of the best when it comes to dog-friendly pubs.”

Entrants were judged on dog-friendly values and the awards are meant to encourage hound-owners to visit their local pubs.

The establishment to win the east of England, and UK wide, top spot was The Dog at Grundisburgh in Suffolk.

Another Herts pub to be recognised is The Three Tuns in Buntingford.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
