Dog owners and their beloved pooches will soon be able to enjoy a spot of tea and cake together as a dog-friendly cafe and restaurant is to open its doors for the first time.

The Elveden Courtyard and Estate near Thetford has converted a former tea room into the new premises, named Dog and Scone.

It will welcome customers on Monday, August 1, offering the same menu as its restaurant alongside canine-friendly treats like ice cream, carrot cake and banana cake.

Deputy manager Lynsey Pearson said: "We are a destination for people when they are travelling into Norfolk and we always have lots of people visiting with dogs.

"We thought people should be able to go out for a nice meal with their pooches in tow so decided to create a dog-friendly cafe and restaurant.

"It will be a lovely, chilled out area for visitors to enjoy with a main meal and lots of treat for dogs too."

Dog and Scone will be open between 10am and 4pm Thursday to Monday.
