Pub company Brakspear has started offering meals for dogs alongside its regular food menu.

The Henley-based operator has teamed up with pet food company Butcher's Pet Care in a month long trial to give peckish pooches the chance to enjoy their meal alongside their owners.

Customers will be able to choose from six meals for their pets, including 'Liver & Garden Veg' chunks in gravy and 'Chicken & Beef' chunks in jelly.

Tom Davies, Brakspear's commercial director, said: "Many of our pubs are located near popular walking routes and attract customers out to enjoy the countryside with their four-legged companions.

"For many dog-owners, being able to source a meal in the pub for their pet as well as for themselves will be an attractive option and we're pleased to be offering the Butcher's meals, which we hope will be a further boost to the dog-friendly reputation of our pubs."

The two Brakspear pubs involved so far are the Five Alls near Lechlade, Gloucestershire and the Catherine Wheel in Goring-on-Thames, Berkshire - both of which are popular with dog walkers.

Davies said the meals may be introduced on a wider scale if successful: "It's a case of let's see how it goes for now. We've got a lot of rural pubs so if it's something that the customers want then we would consider rolling it out."
