24 percent of households in the UK own a dog, and the number of dog owners in London is most definitely growing. Several of us at Davis Brown estate agents in have pooches, and so not wanting to leave out our four-legged friends let me share with you a few of their finds around the West End.
As the official Davis Brown office dog, at lunchtime Bertie likes a stomp around Fitzrovia with his owner, office manager and head of residential and commercial property management, Susan. He loves the welcome he gets at The Crown and 2 Chairmen 31-32 Dean Street. This old school boozer in Dean Street in the heart of Soho welcomes our dogs with a stroke and a lovely big bowl of water – just what’s needed after a hard day at the office!
A bit closer to us at Davis Brown estate agents is the Newman Street Tavern. Described by some as having a rural atmosphere, but being in the centre of town. Hungry hounds and owners alike can settle in for the evening in this cosy pub, everyone’s welcome! Lisa our property manager enjoys taking Ruby there after a walk.
The Society Club in Ingestre Place, Soho is for the more cultured canines. A little gem which combines books, art gallery and a members club. You can also get your paws on signed first copy editions too. Sarah-Jane, our residential negotiator loves to take her book loving pooch Tara for a read on a Saturday afternoon.
During the festive season, it’s fun to be preened and pampered, but let’s not forget that our pets love a good pamper session too! Pet grooming parlours are few and far between in the West End so the closest to us is Primrose Hill Pets at 132 Regents Park Road. Emma our residential sales and lettings manager is looking forward to taking her man Sebastian down there for a trim before the Christmas Holidays!
So thank you to all our local establishments who open up their doors to our dogs. And if you want to come and meet Bertie, or indeed would like to chat to one of our agents here at Davis Brown, please feel free to pop in and see us at 1 Margaret Street, Fitzrovia.
