Dine in with your Dog - now at the Carrington
No more heading out to a dog-friendly cafe to find there aren't any outside seats left, or leaving them outside chained to a tree. Your pampered pooch can enter a fine establishment with his or her sniffer held high, taking a seat right next to you.
As The Carrington was already a local favourite and considering that many members of the community owned dogs, they decided to include an interior garden bar where four-legged friends are welcome. To the side in Arthur Street, you will find the entrance to the dedicated doggie garden bar.
On offer is both a rejuvenated dining and drinks menu awe well as a menu for your pooch.

Free talk with Sami Shah, comedian and award-winning author
Despite nearly being killed by a kangaroo and almost lynched and run out of town after his comedy was taken far too seriously, Sami Shah is very happy to be living in Australia. He has fronted his own satirical show on TV in Karachi, worked as a journalist and been a highly regarded newspaper columnist - all dangerous occupations to be involved in - when the combination of seeing the aftermaths of a devastating bomb attack and being the target of death threats convinced him to leave Pakistan. Under the terms of their Australian migration visa, Sami and his wife and young daughter were obliged to settle in a rural area, and so they moved to Northam in WA.
Now Sami is battling a crippling addiction to meat pies, but at least is no longer constantly mistaken for an escaped asylum seeker from the nearby detention centre. He has also been the star of Australian Story, the subject of an article in The New York Times, and has performed countless comedy shows to ever-growing and appreciative audiences.
So why miss this opportunity to witness Shah's brilliance in person and hear in an intimate setting the details of his award winning memoir, 'I, Migrant'
(refreshments will be provided after talk)
WHEN: Wednesday 16 March 2016 from 12.30pm to 1.30pm
