The new owners of a Perth cafe have welcomed families and their pets with open arms.
South Inch Pavilion reopened on Saturday, after being revamped in a three-week project by Frank Burger-Seed, the man behind Gringos and The Venue eateries in the city centre.
As well as being pet-friendly, Frank has committed to making the business plastic-free, with all plates, cups and cutlery being biodegradable.
On Saturday he held a fun day to mark the opening of the site.
He said: “It’s been a busy three weeks – we’ve had a major refurbishment which has involved taking down walls.
“The fun day is about raising awareness that we are here and we are open. We want to turn the South Inch into a destination for dog walkers.”
He added that they were committed to being environmentally friendly.
“We have zero plastic on the premises,” he said.
“No bottles, everything in packaging which is recyclable. The cups biodegrade in just three weeks.
“We will also be getting a couple of big recycling bins to encourage people to recycle.”
The fun day was run in conjunction with Dog Friendly Perthshire.
Katie McCandless-Thomas, of the organisation, said it was great to see another establishment welcoming dogs through the doors.
She said: “I think today has been great, for both families and dogs. From the start there’s been a lot of dogs down to check out the café – it’s in such a superb location.
“Frank wanted to promote the pavilion as being dog friendly and he loves dogs and wants them to feel as welcome as the humans.”
Frank took over the building after previous business owner Steve Caldwell, who ran the park café for three years, said he was given just two weeks’ notice to vacate by owners Perth and Kinross Council.
