An Otterton pub is serving up dinner, such as sausage and mash, to dogs as well as their owners.

The King’s Arms, in Otterton, offers a ‘doggie menu’ alongside their choice of meals for their owners.

The menu, launched in 2014, gives dogs the chance to fill up on a choice of cold liver or sausage, potatoes and gravy.

Pub manager Elaine Gardner, who has been at the King’s Arms for two years, said it had proved very popular.

She said: “We started doing it because we’re in such a doggy walking place.

“It’s been brilliant. We have lots of doggie bowls and sometimes, particularly in the summer, we can get between 15 and 20 dogs a day in the pub.

“We welcome all dogs into the pub - it’s a large part of our business.”

She added that a selection of the hotel’s twin and family rooms were suitable for dogs.
