StyleTails & PipsDish Dog Lovers Sunday Lunch

Proving that it’s possible to squeeze eleven dogs in a petit West End restaurant without total pandemonium, StyleTails and dog-friendly eatery, PipsDish hosted a Dog Lovers Lunch and pop-up designer boutique last Sunday.

Sure, no one wants a smelly dog slobbering all over them while they’re trying to eat, but trying to find good restaurants that will genuinely welcome well-behaved dogs can be a chore. Putting to bed the myth that it’s illegal to bring dogs into restaurants in the UK (it’s not), StyleTails teamed up with PipsDish in Covent Garden to put on a relaxed Sunday affair for hounds and humans alike.

Arriving from all over London and beyond, peckish pooches and their people were welcomed by dog-lover and owner of PipsDish – Philip Dundas. With the sun blazing down, and a few tongues hanging out (the dogs and owners), guests cooled off with a refreshing aperitif, while a flurry of sniffing, licking and cuddling ensued.

With their simple and confident approach to cooking, Philip and the PipsDish team prepared a sumptuous three course meal, just like your would make in your own kitchen.

A Primavera soup made with fish broth, focaccia and a medley of seasonal vegetables was followed with a mouth-watering main of honey slow-roast pork or beetroot and sumac-marinated lamb rump with balsamic roast potatoes and Kentish asparagus. Finishing off with something sweet, guests tucked into a chocolate and raspberry clafouti.

The canine customers weren’t left out either – chowing down on their own mini dog’s dinner, with bowls licked clean in a matter of seconds!
