Bank­foot Inn gets paws up by dog own­ers in na­tional sur­vey

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

A Perthshire ho­tel has been named as one of the top places in Scot­land to eat with your dog.

The Bank­foot Inn came 10th in a list of dog-friendly eater­ies voted for by the pub­lic, in a sur­vey or­gan­ised by Vet­s4Pets’ Scot­tish prac­tices.

Vot­ing took place over the sum­mer when dog own­ers were asked to vote for their favourite from a list of 40 food busi­nesses which were split into four cat­e­gories; cafes, pubs, ho­tels and B&Bs and restau­rants and bars.

First placed Bay Tar­bet Ho­tel in Loch Lomond took 50% of the vote.

Adam Charleston, of Vet­s4Pets, said: “Scot­land is blessed with so many beau­ti­ful places that own­ers can walk around and ex­plore with their dog, but they all must be able to eat to­gether, so we launched this search to show­case the hundreds of dog-friendly food and drink es­tab­lish­ments that own­ers and their dogs can en­joy to­gether.

“We’ve been over­whelmed with the sur­vey’s re­sponse. It’s fan­tas­tic to see so many dog own­ers get­ting in­volved to let us know where their favourite places are. The va­ri­ety of venues in the top 10 shows just how many won­der­ful places there are to visit with your dog; from pubs in Glas­gow, to ho­tels in Perthshire.”

The GRO Cof­fee café in Irvine came sec­ond, while The but­ter­fly and the pig and WEST Brew­ery, both in Glas­gow, fin­ished in third and fourth and The Coach House Cof­fee Shop in Loch Lomond round­ing off the top five.

The Culzean Cas­tle Home Farm in May­bole, BrewDog in Ed­in­burgh, The Brown Bull in Lochwin­noch and Siem­pre Bi­cy­cle Cafe in Glas­gow com­pleted the top 10.
