You’ll also get to meet fellow Pug & Frenchie owners – chat about all things Pug  and French Bulldog- 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.

  • Up to to date with their vaccinations
  • Healthy and not showing any symptoms of contagious illness nor suffering (or recently suffered) from Kennel Cough.
  • NOT IN SEASON at the event

Will the venue be open as normal that day?

Revolution will be closed to the public during the event.

Will this event be safe?

We pride ourselves on putting on safe events – please read our Pug Cafe Reviews.
Our main priority is to host a safe and fun event for both dogs and humans which is why we take manual bookings and adhere to a strict capacity limit.

This is also a risk-assessed event, and we will do everything possible to ensure it is safe for all those attending.

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 dogs can I bring?

Maximum four, 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 Pug and Frenchie crosses allowed?

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

Should I bring an anxious dog?

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 dog better.


But, the event is off-lead and there will be dogs free to roam and we will not be able to stop them from approaching your dog – please think carefully about whether your anxious dog will enjoy meeting many other dogs off-lead in a cafe environment.

You may also borrow an ‘NERVOUS’ bandana from us to alert fellow guests your dog 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 Pug or Frenchie to attend Pug Cafe or Frenchie Cafe?

Pug Cafe events are primarily for dogs and their owners, but we do have many allocated spaces per time slot for guests without dogs, too, to come and enjoy.

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.
