The ultimutt treat for your furry friend has been unleashed

Down on the docks a brand-new brunch is launching, with a distinctly tail-wagging twist. Nova Scotia is opening its doors this month for "Doggy Brunch" with food and drink for each adult and their cute canine companion. 

We are very much dog friendly already and we have wanted to do something special for dog owners.

Each paying adult receives a breakfast brioche and warm drink whilst their pooch is served a doggie breakfast and pupachino - all dogs eat and drink for free. The monthly event launches on Saturday 19 November.

Ruff day?

Iain Hoskins, director of the Ma Pub Group who own Ma Boyle's, Tempest on Tithebarn and Nova Scotia, says, “We’ve noticed over the last few weeks how much Liverpool really loves its doggies – especially down on the waterfront! 

"All kinds of pooches big and small are getting their walkies and we think it’s because this iconic area is wonderful to explore, from where we are at Nova Scotia and all the way down the river and to the Albert Dock and beyond. 

"We are very much dog friendly already and we have wanted to do something special for dog owners so we are launching our Doggy Brunch on Saturday 19 November, with the second event just before Christmas on Saturday 17 December. I’d encourage festive fancy dress for the doggies on that date!”

Set in the Mann Island building on Liverpool’s iconic waterfront, Nova Scotia serves breakfasts, lunches, small plates, hearty mains and delicious desserts with a wide range of drinks and signature cocktails. 

It's little known that at the end of the 19th century, the Mann Island area was previously a shanty-town called Nova Scotia, made up of dwellings and businesses serving the huge ships when the city boomed as a trade destination. The dock served Canada and the 'lumber' trade, twinning with Nova Scotia in Canada - there is also a Canadian Liverpool, River Mersey and Mann Island.

The first Nova Scotia Doggy Brunch is from 8.30am-11am on Saturday 19 November. Tickets cost £10 per adult; dogs eat and drink for free. Bookings essential; email or visit the Nova Scotia website.
