A bar in Belfast has launched Northern Ireland's first ever pub menu for four-legged customers.

The Dirty Onion in the city's Cathedral Quarter has created a partnership with local pet food brand, Naturo, to allow pooches to enjoy a meal with their owners.

The range of healthy dog foods on offer include chicken and rice, salmon and potato, lamb or turkey, served alongside rice and vegetables.

Doggy desserts treats are also available in the form of a liver brownie or Frozzys, a frozen yogurt packed with essential vitamins, minerals and fibre.

Tim Herron, general manager at The Dirty Onion, said: “We wanted to be able to offer dogs more than just water when they come to visit, so we are delighted to be the first to introduce Northern Ireland’s first dog menu, right in the heart of Belfast city centre.

“Naturo Pet Foods has been key in helping us bring this exciting new concept to Belfast, and we are delighted to have them on board.”

Claire McNally, marketing manager with Naturo Pet Foods, added: “Naturo is delighted to partner with the Dirty Onion - we cannot wait to see the reviews!”

Last year, The Dirty Onion became part of a select list of venues that are dog-friendly in the city centre.

The bar hosts a number of hugely successful Pooch Social events throughout the year in aid of Lucy’s Trust, a local charity providing a sanctuary for dogs in need.

The Cathedral Quarter bar also features as a stop on Belfast’s new dog friendly pub tour, which includes a visit to The Dirty Onion to enjoy a local dog beer and food.
