A Great Place for Dogs to Settle Inn!
Stirling’s The Settle Inn has been announced as a finalist for the DRAM Dog Friendly Pub of the Year at the 2014 DRAM Scottish Licensed Trade Awards, which take place at The Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow on Monday July 7th.
The DRAM Dog Friendly Award seeks to reward bar operators who go above and beyond when it comes to welcoming pet dogs, allowing them indoors and providing water bowls and treats.
The judges were impressed with the strength of The Settle Inn’s application, and upon visiting the venue it was clear to the judges that licensee Lesley Beech ensures that a great deal of care and attention to is paid to their customer’s dogs. A ‘Dugs Welcome!’ sticker is proudly displayed in the bar and water bowls and treats are readily available . A member of staff even takes her dog to work with her, and Pappy The Reggae Dog is advertised as the bar’s in-house DJ, though we’re assured that she’s really more of a dancer!.
The awards, dubbed the licensed trade ‘Oscars,’ are organised by licensed trade magazine, DRAM. Now in their 19th year, they are the longest-established awards of their kind in Scotland, recognising excellence in Scotland’s bar, restaurant and hospitality industries.
