Trendy but friendly, and not too eye-wateringly expensive, the Ace in Shoreditch is a good bet for hipster dogs and their owners, especially as the £25 supplement mentioned on the website has been scrapped. Hounds are allowed in the bar and the cafe – small dogs are even admitted into Hoi Polloi restaurant – and dog beds and accessories can be provided. The pared-down aesthetic of the place means you don't have to worry about mucky paws on carpets either. If you want to bring an animal 'bigger or weirder than a dog' then let them know and they'll see what can be arranged.
