Golden retrievers and their owners are invited to a pop-up café at Down Hall Hotel, Spa and Estate next month.

Following the success of its 'Cockapoo Café' in May, canine events company Pop & Bark is hosting a similar event for golden retrievers on Sunday, September 10.

The 'Golden Retriever Café' aims to be the largest outdoor event of its kind, set within 110-acres of gardens and grounds.

Owners and dogs can enjoy a human and dog-friendly barbecue menu, curated by the hotel's executive chef Robert Pearce.

Golden retrievers can also feast on bespoke snacks from the Doggy Bakery, and there will be stalls from local brands to browse.


Dogs will be free to explore the grounds, and relax on dog-sized furniture with dog-friendly props, while their owners enjoy cocktails.

Only golden retrievers are welcome to the event, along with owners and dog enthusiasts without their own pets.

Tickets cost £16.25 for adults and £8.25 for children aged 16 and under, with food and drink sold separately. The barbecue menu is priced at £15 per adult and £10 per child.

Entry is from 1.15pm to 3.15 for two hours only, with more slots due to open.
