Yesterday we went for Sunday roast with our friend Charlie. He and his mummy Sarah had come to London from Gloucestershire.
We haven’t seen them for quite a while so it was going to be a special treat just to see them. We took the opportunity to try a dog-friendly restaurant we’ve just learnt about – the restaurant HUNter 486 at The Arch Hotel near Marble Arch.The Arch is a London boutique hotel near Marble Arch Upon entering the hotel lobby we saw some colourful artwork of hoomansand dogs!Their restaurant is “dog-friendly” but we were not allowed inside the restaurant – because they have an open kitchen.
There were two places we could have dined in and we chose the Library. The hoomans had a drink – not Charlie, though he looked on with thirstAnd the waiter soon brought us not just one but our individual bowls of water.They even got the size right! LOL!
There was a Pet Menu Hmmm, let’s see what’s on offer. Mummy thought since we usually have meat on a daily basis, the sardines and salmon would be a good choice. And what are you having, Charlie?When the waiter came in to set the table and brought in some bread, George got really excited!As Mummy and Sarah sat down for their meal –They brought us our foodWe had to pose first before we were allowed to eat that deliciousness.
P.s. Mummy asked them to leave out the rice – it doesn’t agree with me. And because it was quite a large serving, both George and I shared it.But George didn’t have enough and as he always seem to have a very bad habit of doing, he stole a piece of Sarah’s bread with lightning speed!There is absolutely no guilt at all on George’s face as he chomped away on the bread.We always never seem to have enough – so we sat and waited And waited for more … And finally – there we see some remnants of Sarah’s burger!Ahhh, it was all a very positive experience, don’t you think Charlie and George?The staff were really nice to us too.
After lunch Mummy decided to walk off lunch – so we went through Hyde Park. Along the way home, a friendly dog came up to say hello! There was something familiar about him but Mummy wasn’t sure. Sure enough he was a Cockapoo with a Summer hair cut! And his name was Kipper! It’s Kipper, the Dog! I have to tell Little Tyke that I met Kipper.
Kipper and his owners came from Leeds and we told them about our Doodle meets in Hyde Park. They said they might come sometime! (Kipper, if you’re reading this – we hope you will come along sometime!)
May’s comment: HUNter 486 is the restaurant at The Arch Hotel, a relaxed, boutique-style hotel. While it is dog-friendly, diners with dogs sit in the Library because they have an open-kitchen. It was absolutely fine. It was actually a cosy option.
Hunter 486 is named after the 1950s dialling code for Marylebone. It offers a ‘Best of British’ inspired menu – Fish & Chips and Afternoon Tea with a twist. Located at 50 Great Cumberland Pl, London W1H 7FD
