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.
