In its review of the bar, EnjoyTravel wrote: “Serving authentic craft beers and pub food, this place is perfect for drinks with friends or family members, or a laid-back weekend dining experience that includes your dog.

“Here, your dog will be treated like any other guest and offered water bowls and treats to help them cool off after a long walk in one of the many nearby parks. Plus, you can expect plenty of space for your dog to stretch out at your feet”.

A spokesperson for the website said: “Nowadays, restaurants, coffee shops and cafes across the UK are becoming more and more pet-friendly, with cat and dog pop-up cafes becoming the new craze, restaurants introducing dog-friendly facilities and even dog menus and drinks to enable your little friends to dine with you. It’s now almost become the norm to take your furry friend along with you to your favourite lunch or dinner spot.
