LUXURY FAMILY HOTELS HAS LAUNCHED THEIR WAGGY TAILS TEA TIME AND A LA BARK MENU Luxury Family Hotels are pleased to announce the launch of their new Waggy Tails Tea Time and A La Bark menu. Whether couples and families are heading to the coast of Cornwall or setting off for a cosy getaway in the Wiltshire countryside, Luxury Family Hotels encourage their guests to bring their furry friends along with them. More now than ever, there is no excuse to leave them behind with the collection’s newly launched Waggy Tails Tea Time and posh-pooch A La Bark menu! Served in each of the five Luxury Family Hotel lounges, or outside during the warmer months, the Waggy Tails Tea Time is a real feast. Start healthy with paw-dit-ites of crunchy carrots, apples, and cheese followed by lick-a-licious liver cake, pawnut butter biscuits and canine carrot cake with pawsome frosting. This is washed down with a thirst-quenching bowl of H20 and a puppacino! For the pooches whose parents keep an eye on their waistline, Luxury Family Hotels has also launched their A La Bark menu. Choose from a barkingly good beef supper or a waggingly delicious chicken dinner comprising of slow-cooked chicken in doggy gravy with crushed potatoes and vegetables. For something sweet, finish with a homemade peanut butter bone-shaped biscuit or frosty paws ice cream. Also available is a beer for dogs which is non-alcoholic, non-carbonated, and packed with vitamins and minerals. The A La Bark menu has been carefully curated with a doggy’s taste buds in mind, but also their health. All dishes are homemade using ingredients from the hotel’s kitchen*. Dogs like to dress up smart for dinner, which is why Luxury Family Hotels have prizes up for grabs for the best-dressed doggies! Turn up for tea looking dapper, and share a social post using #WaggyTailsAtLFH and be in with a chance of winning a paw-fect prize! Each of the five Luxury Family Hotels in the UK lends itself perfectly to family getaways which include the furry kind. With huge grounds for adventures and exploring and many beautiful walks and trails on each of the hotel’s doorsteps, dogs will want for nothing. Hounds will love walking in the rolling hill countryside of the Cotswolds when staying at Woolley Grange. Luxury Family Hotels has something for everyone and every breed. *except the frosty paws ice cream which is sourced from a reputable supplier Waggy Tails Tea Time is served for £15 per pooch all year round at all five Luxury Family Hotels and includes all the treats listed above. Dishes from the A La Bark menu vary from £2 to £5. To book, visit FOREVER BOUQUET FINE ART What? Why not commission an original oil painting of your wedding bouquet or flowers?
