A Bolton pub is offering a paw-fect treat for dog lovers.

To mark National Dog Day on Monday, August 26, The Blundell Arms on Chorley Old Road will be giving away free pints to owners who bring their four-legged friends to the pub with them.

The giveaway comes after Chef & Brewer found more than 55 per cent of dog owners would choose to take their canine companion to the pub with them over their partner, friend or family member.

Customers will get a complimentary glass of their favourite tipple on the house. All they have to do is bring their dog to the bar with them when ordering.

As well as a free drink for owners, there will be treats for their dogs to enjoy too.

Matthew Adderley, general manager at the Blundell Arms Chef & Brewer pub, said: “We’re a nation of dog-lovers and our research just goes to show that our four-legged friends really do make the perfect pub companions, especially after a long walk in the countryside.

“That’s why, to celebrate National Dog Day, we’re offering a special treat for Horwich dog owners who just love spending time with their furry friends, by offering them a complimentary refreshing drink to enjoy whilst winding down and relaxing in the paw-fect setting.

“We look forward to welcoming local dog owners next week!”

A range of drinks including hand-selected wines, cask ales, craft beers, spirits and soft drinks will be available.

Redemption is limited to one drink per person, and full terms and conditions can be found at https://www.chefandbrewer.com/the-notebook/mans-best-friend.
