It can be thirsty work soaking up the sunshine by the seaside so one pub decided it was only fair to start serving drink for its four legged visitors.

A new dog bar has opened at the Red Lion Hotel in Cromer town centre, exclusively for parched pooches.

Water is dispensed into a bowl from an old beer barrel at the pub and hotel which prides itself on being dog friendly.

Red Lion office manager Jo Phipps said: 'One of the owner's Callum Stuart came up with the idea, being in the location where we are we get a lot of dogs in the bar.

'We provide a bed and bowl for dogs in our bedrooms and serve sausages for them at breakfast.'
