With warmer days just around the corner, Mancunians both two-legged and four-legged can now enjoy the ‘paw-esome’ delights of Hard Rock Cafe Manchester on its outdoor ‘Pet Patio’.

To coincide with this month’s National Pet Day (April 11th), Hard Rock Cafe Manchester has teamed up with Manchester & Cheshire Dogs Home, a charity aiming to rehome Manchester’s unloved and unwanted dogs.

When any dog owner purchases one main course*, their canine companion will be treated to a wag-tastic meal including a ‘Puppy Patty’ (a delicious burger patty) and a ‘Doggie Dessert’ (a dollop of whipped cream) as well as a ‘Canine Cocktail’ (a fresh bowl of water) free of charge. For every dog who visits the Pet Patio this year, the Printworks restaurant will donate £1 to the Manchester and Cheshire Dogs’ Home; customers are also encouraged to make a donation when they feast with their furry friend.

Charlotte Anthon from Manchester & Cheshire Dogs’ Home, said, “It’s great to see Hard Rock Cafe Manchester embracing a pet-friendly policy – there are too few places in the city centre where you can take your dog if you need a meal or drink.


“The Pet Patio is a real win-win – delicious meals, happy pups, and a brighter future for dogs in our community.”

Nick Lewis, Assistant General Manager at Hard Rock Cafe Manchester, commented: “We take our motto ‘Love All, Serve All’ seriously, so it makes perfect sense to have a dog-friendly area – pets are cherished members of the family, and we wanted to create a space where both guests and pets can dine together with no restrictions. It’s great to be able to support a local charity.

“We’re proud to be one of the few city centre businesses that welcomes dogs and we hope that others can follow in our steps.”

Booking for the Pet Patio is advised.

*For each main course purchased, two courses will be provided to one dog.
