It’s set to be a doggy delight – for owners and their pets alike.

Bournemouth’s Marsham Court Hotel is to launch ‘The Doggy Brunch’ from next month.

The East Cliff hotel is inviting dog-owners to park for free in its large car park before ordering a brunch.

Then, after taking their four-legged friend for a walk along the beach, the brunch will be ready on return.

There’s even a free sausage for every dog.

And it will also help a great cause with 50p from every brunch served donated to Margaret Green Animal Rescue.

James Dixon-Box, Operations Director, said: “The hotel became dog friendly back in January 2019 and it’s quickly become very popular.

“Our staff love having the dogs around and we get so many wonderful comments from the dog owners that stay with us about how welcoming we are to their little fur-babies!

“As a dog owner myself, I know it can be hard to find a place that will take dogs by the beach with easy parking and great food.

“We can offer all this and dogs are allowed in all areas of our bar and lounge areas including our brand new Snug with lovely sea views.

“The Doggy Brunch is one of a series of events that we are putting on to increase our non-residential business through the winter.

“Due to Covid-19 we are having to close for residents this winter for five months.

“We are therefore focusing on ideas like this to see us through until we can open fully again in March.”

The Doggy Brunch will take place on Sundays from October 4, 9am until 12pm.

Booking is essential.
