It’s a dog’s (Christmas) dinner on Regent Street

Attention, London-based chow-hounds: “Santa Paws” is coming to W1, courtesy of Sainsbury’s. From December 13 to 15 the supermarket giant is running a three-day pop-up restaurant at 10 Hanover Street, where four-legged guests can tuck into turkey, carrots and sage, or chicken, duck and turkey, plus dog-friendly mince pies. There’ll be a photographer equipped with festive jumpers on hand, and Christmas sandwiches for humans. Tickets cost £5, with two owners and one dog for £7.50. This includes entry to the pop-up for a 45-minute session, food for the dogs, a Christmas sandwich and a glass of something sparkling for owners. To book, click here.
