MAN’S best friend is not being left out at an Alnwick pub.

Steve and Mandy Gilbert, the new owners of Ye Olde Cross, better known as the Dirty Bottles, in Alnwick, were determined to cater for four-legged, as well as two-legged, customers.

Dog owners who buy a meal get a free bowl of food for their canine companion.

Steve said: “We are very dog-friendly and would like to see dog owners and non-dog owners alike.”
