Belfast Bar Launches Northern Ireland’s First Menu For Dogs


Popular, Belfast bar, ‘The Dirty Onion’ is now catering to a wider variety of customers and local dog owners are in for a treat! The Dirty Onion’ has launched Northern Ireland’s first menu for dogs. The menu, created in partnership with local pet food brand, Naturo, means that dogs can now enjoy a nutritious meal with their owners, with dishes created using high-quality, fresh, natural ingredients, made in Northern Ireland.

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. Tim Herron, general manager at The Dirty Onion commented, “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.
The range of healthy doggy favourites on the menu include: chicken and rice, salmon and potato, lamb or turkey, served alongside rice and vegetables but of course, no meal out would be complete without dessert, so dogs can enjoy a liver brownie or Frozzys, a frozen yogurt packed with essential vitamins, minerals and fibre.

Based in County Armagh, Mackle Pet Foods, who own Naturo was established over 40 years ago by the Mackle family, whose aim is to create pure and natural pet food from the family farm. They work closely with leading nutritionists to ensure their products meet the specific nutritional needs of pets; targeting their immune and digestive systems, as well as the quality of their skin and coat.

The Cathedral Quarter bar also features as a stop on Belfast’s new dog friendly pub tour, with The Dirty Onion’s dog menu starting from just £1.25 per meal. For more information, visit thedirtyonion.com and Belfast’s dog friendly walking tours, visit dogfriendlywalkingtours.co.uk
