A Somerset holiday park could soon become one of the UK’s most popular doggy destinations after it opened a new cafe which is welcoming both humans and hounds.
Holiday Resort Unity near Burnham-on-Sea is putting pooches on a pedestal by offering them their own food and drinks menu when they visit with their owners.
The new cafe, called Coast, is located on Brean Leisure Park which is adjacent to Holiday Resort Unity, and provides a raft of fairground rides and other attractions.
Bonzo’s special menu includes starters, main courses and desserts – plus, of course, a selection of drinks such as Pawsecco and Bottom Sniffer Beer, both made for dogs.
And instead of being forced to lie on a hard floor, Tyson will have his creature comforts provided for by a soft blanket on which to recline.
Holiday Resort Unity, which has been family-run for over 70 years, is one of the Somerset coast’s largest and most popular parks with holiday homes to let and buy.
Director Alan House said the park has always been pet-friendly – but until now, dogs had to wait patiently outside its food and drink venues… which didn’t seem fair:
“We listen very carefully to our customers all the time, and their feedback on this issue was that they didn’t want their four-legged friends separated from the family at meal-times,” he said.
“So when we created Coast, we decided to go the extra mile and not only invite dogs in to the café, but to present them with their own three-course menu to chew over.
“Now we have solved everyone’s doggy dilemma at a stroke, and customer reaction has been brilliant!” added Alan.
He said that with a new stretch of the England Coast Path just opened alongside Brean Leisure Park, an increase in the number of dog walkers would be inevitable.
All pet owners would be welcome, said Alan, whether staying on the holiday park or not.
