Pet Friendly Restaurants Part 1
Field and Forest’s™ grain free, signature recipes provide meals for your pet that are as delicious as they are nutritious. But since we all need to eat, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite pet friendly restaurants around South Africa, so you can enjoy some quality time while grabbing a bit to eat. This month features restaurants located in Gauteng and Kwazulu-Natal.
When visiting any of these venues, keep the health and safety of your pet, as well as the other patrons and pets a priority. Follow the rules, keep your dogs on leads where required and clean up any mess.
