Restaurant for DOGS set to open in busy Cleethorpes high street
2nd January 2018
A restaurant for dogs will set tails wagging next year - with a menu catering for pet owners AND their beloved pooch.
Waggie Tail, on Sea View Street, Cleethorpe, is an extension of popular brasserie Petit Delight, and will carry the same menu for its human guests.
But the restaurant will put dogs first, and offer a canine-friendly menu of meat, fish, and other healthy snacks.
Petit Delight owner Richard Allenby said: "We're developing the unit next our restaurant in the old Queen's hotel.
"It's going to be for humans and dogs, but dogs will come first - they're the priority."
The management team decided to branch out and create a dog restaurant after they opened up the back room of Petit Delight to pooches.
It became so popular that Richard said they often struggled to accommodate all the dogs.
He said: "We started about a year ago to have one room as a dog section, and it's gone so well. We came here the other weekend and we had ten dogs outside waiting to come in!
"Unfortunately at the moment we don't have food for dogs, but we are developing with vets a healthy menu for our new Waggie Tail restaurant."
The café will offer the normal Petit Delight menu to customers alongside a new tailored dog menu including meat, fish, rice, pasta, and vegetable dishes.
They are also opening a pamper salon and boutique in the upstairs of the building.
Owner Joyce Ward said the restaurant is aiming to provide healthy meals for the pampered pooches.
She said: "We are aiming to provide healthy food for the dogs.
"We're working with a vet who is giving us advice on nutrition so it's good for the dogs because we're all dog lovers."
Louise Allenby added that the idea sprung from their own love of dogs - and also just how popular their dog-friendly section has been.
She said: "It's crazy how busy this part of our restaurant is so we just wanted to extend it."
Richard said: "We just want somewhere that people can come in and relax with their dogs - what frustrates us as dog owners is when we go away on holiday, and you've got these lovely facilities and you can take your dog anywhere.
"Then you come back here to Cleethorpes and we've got a great beach where people come miles to walk their dog but you don't want to leave your dog in the car and you don't want to leave them at home.
"We're very excited to open and to give them a place to come."
The restaurant is expected to open between the end of January and mid-February next year.
