Pet ownership has sky-rocketed over lockdown with more than half of UK households now owning at least one pet.
Dogs (and cats) are top of the list with an estimated 12 million pet pooches now living in our homes, according to data from statista.
With lockdown restrictions easing we are now taking our dogs further afield than just the park or beach as we begin to return to normal life.
So, with that in mind, we have put together a list of eight restaurants in Liverpool One where your canine companions will be welcome.
