A Norfolk café and garden centre has opened its doors to its customers’ four-legged friends, and has seen a surge in demand as a result.
Urban Jungle, which has a site in both Norwich's Ringland Lane and in Beccles, has gone dog-friendly.

Marketing and events manager Rachel Bannon said: "Our owners are a huge fans of dogs so they were always keen on going dog-friendly. The thinking was also around this being such an instagrammable spot, which has really driven business, and by adding dogs that just adds to the appeal."
The team has also devised some routes which incorporate dog walks, along with a stop at the café.
Ms Banon said: "We've got some ground rules in place to make sure that it's still a lovely experience for people who come who don't have dogs. But last weekend was the first time we allowed dogs and it was jam-packed with people bringing their pets in."
