A Newstead pub is in the running to be named the the UK’s favourite dog-friendly watering hole.

The Pit micropub on Tilford Road has already attracted over more than 400 votes and countless comments from patrons who regularly bring their four-legged friends with them for a drink.

But more are now needed before voting closes on October 29.

The awards are run by DogBuddy, a website that helps dog owners find dog sitters for their pooches.

Lorraine Horrocks, who runs The Pit micropub, said: “The Pit is currently number two on the leaderboards for the East Midlands region and if we are successful in winning this round we go through to the national finals.

“We believe our pub and it’s location are unbeatable when it comes to walks and facilities for dogs and we are determined to bring this award to Gedling.”
