For it has started selling dog beer – in pork and chicken flavours – imported from Belgium.

Mike Stiaka, assistant general manager, said: “We pride ourselves on being a dog friendly pub. So when a regulars brought it in to show us, the dog liberation began.”

Rest assured, the beer is zero per cent alcoholic, so dogs shouldn’t feel too “ruff” the morning after.
