Dogs welcome! Why we’re proud to be dog friendly

Here at Hetty and Betty we’re proud to be dog friendly. We’ve never had a dog be rude to our staff. We’ve never had a dog sneakily leave without paying. We’ve never had a dog make a mess of the toilet facilities. We’ve never had a dog break anything. In fact, all the dogs that have ever visited us have been the perfect guests! So if your dog can vouch for you, you’re welcome too!

Seriously though, we always welcome our canine friends because as dog owners, we know how hard it can be to find a nice place to eat that welcomes a beloved pooch. When we’d go out for the day as a family, quite often the only option was a pub because it was the only place that welcomed our dog, but that caused other problems, as we have young children. So we couldn’t go into cafes or restaurants because of the dog, but we couldn’t go into pubs because of the children.

It’s not much fun sitting out in the rain, trying to enjoy your quickly going cold food!

When we started H&B we said from the start we would be dog friendly, and we haven’t looked back. We’ve welcomed all kinds of dogs. As we have flexible space, we can accommodate teeny tiny dogs and big dogs. Our kitchens are situated at the very top of the building on the second floor, so whether you’re seated on the ground floor, or first floor, dogs are welcome.

You’d be hard pushed to find a more dog loving cafe! No dog escapes H&B without a belly rub from at least one of the staff! And if your pooch is a little timid or wary of other dogs, our upstairs is large enough to give you some space.

So bring the whole family to visit us, but don’t be surprised if your dog gets the biggest hello!
