What is Frenchie Cafe?

Frenchie Cafe is a pop up cafe hosted by events company Pug Cafe. We’ve toured the whole of the UK bringing our famous pop up to cities everywhere, and now we’re coming to Southampton!

Do I need a booking?

Yes you do! You need a confirmed booking to attend as all our events are strictly booking only and we do not allow walk-ins.

All our pop up cafes are breed specific. At this event we will also be seeing Pug but they will be in alternative time slots to Frenchies.

What can I expect at Frenchie Cafe?

Treat your furry best friend to a special indoor cafe experience just for them! They’ll get to tuck into lots of treats from the doggy menu, meet lots of new friends, mingle and rub paws in a safe, off-lead space. The perfect way to socialise and an incredibly fun doggy day out!

You’ll also get to meet fellow Frenchie owners – chat about all this Frenchie – and enjoy delicious food and drinks with a great paw-ty atmosphere. There’s also plenty of cute photo opportunities so you can grab the perfect photo for your doggy’s Insta.

Dog lovers who don’t have their own Frenchie are always welcome to our pop up cafes, and you can expect to meet lots of Frenchies, make new friends both furry and human, and enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience!

Unlike other dog events, Pug Cafe does not use a third party ticketing site and we will always ensure your time slot has a happy mix of dogs, humans, families and children.

How many Frenchies can I bring?

Maximum five, but if you want to bring more please request in your booking email. It may not be fulfilled, but we will always try our best to fit in your party. But please, always ensure you are bringing enough people to help take care of all your dogs.

We accept a ratio of 1 human per 2 dogs and we reserve the right to cancel your booking if we believe you are not bringing enough humans to take care of all your dogs.

Please DO NOT make large group bookings, if you wish to be in the same slot as your friends simply let us know in your email and we will try to accommodate you.

Are Frenchie crosses allowed?

Yes absolutely! Please be sure to tell us what mix they are in your booking email.

Should I bring an anxious Frenchie?

If your dog is anxious or nervous then it is up to you as a responsible owner to decide whether the event is suitable for them. We do have quieter areas at the cafe where you can enjoy a more calmer experience, and may suit your Pug better.

You may also borrow an ‘ANXIOUS’ bandana from us to alert fellow guests your Pug may need a little more personal space.

You can speak to us at time of booking to discuss any concerns prior to paying!

Do I need a Frenchie to attend Pug Cafe?

Frenchie Cafe is primarily for Frenchies and their owners, but we do have many allocated spaces per time slot for guests without dogs, too.

We always welcome dog lovers to events – it’s a great opportunity to learn about the breed first hand from owners, make friends, enjoy the company of the dogs and a unique day out.
