This country has gone to the dogs

While the Queen will mark this momentous occasion with a river pageant along the Thames and a concert at Buckingham Palace, leading south London pub group, Renaissance, responsible for the acclaimed Avalon, Abbeville and Stonhouse in Clapham, The Bolingbroke in Battersea and The Rosendale in West Dulwich, will honour the Queen’s constant companions – the corgis – with a complimentary treat worthy of dog royalty.

Simply take your corgi, or dorgi, to any Renaissance Pub over the royal weekend for a delicious Orkney roast beef with all the trimmings, top quality dog biscuits and lashings of gravy for them to chow down absolutely free.

Let’s celebrate the corgi – only the finest for Britain’s most privileged pets.

Notes to editors: 

  1. A complimentary roast beef sandwich is available for any corgi or dorgi (a crossbreed between a corgi and dachshund) from Saturday 2nd until and including Tuesday 5th June.
  2. The complimentary dish is available with the purchase of two drinks from the bar.
