One year on from initially opening, and after reviewing the Central Bark dog friendly cafe trial, we are pleased to announce that due to the success of this trial, Central Bark will remain open for the foreseeable future. We are delighted that visitor numbers to Central Bark have been far higher than anticipated, with a continually warm and friendly atmosphere being maintained by a steady stream of visitors – with some returning on an almost daily basis. Feedback given to our Central Bark staff has been almost unanimously positive. The social media response has been fantastic too, with some great reviews being left across our various platforms. In addition we have run a couple of dog shows, which have been well received, and a monthly dog walking group has also been set up with great success.
