Has Essex Landlady Gone Barking Mad?

Julie Bain, who runs the Crown Hotel in Manningtree, has created an à la carte menu for dogs.

The pub landlady told Heart: "There's a totally separate area for the dogs and at the moment the dogs are actually dragging their owners through the door so it's a really good feel-good factor for the trade."

On the menu, a choice of chicken, ham, beef, turkey or sausages - as well as free doggie biscuits and water.

And it doesn't stop there!

Julie, who owns a Yorkshire terrier-poodle cross called Jazz, added: "We're working on doggie birthday parties with a special cake made by our chef Becky using a special ingredient as well as a dog walking club."
