Staff were wonderful at accommodating food allergy requirements. Very flexible. When we arrived it started raining, so we had to wait 45 mins before we could order!

The puppies were gorgeous but the food was not nice at all.
We had the platter for two and the brisket smelled bad, the pulled pork had no salt at all and the ribs were super dry and obviously from a few days before.
Wouldn’t go there for lunch again, only for coffee to see the puppies

Had a great meal and the grandchildren just loved the interaction with the puppies, even in the rain.
Would highly recommend for something a little different.

We had a lovely morning at Collies and Co. The food was very yummy and came out very fast. There were unfortunately a lot of flies.
The kids loved the puppy play time and it's a great reason to visit the cafe.
We will be back

The food was great. Unfortunately we had to inhale it and didn't get to enjoy it the way we would have if it didn't arrive 10mins before our Puppy cuddle experience.
The Puppies are gorgeous. Maybe less people at each session so everyone gets a turn at having a cuddle. Was still a lovely experience though.

Food generous portions and decent quality. Great value when you consider the puppy experience is included. Incredibly hot on a summers day eating outside though - would highly recommend choosing a day with comfortable temperatures (if you feel the heat) seeing there isn’t any indoor seating at this stage. Puppy experience was great.

We had a great teens birthday party with lunch and puppy cuddles. It was very hot though. A solid roof would help better than the shade cloths. Puppies were really cute and playful. Food was delicious. Thanks to the great staff for the friendly attention.

My sister and I had a great experience at Collies and Co! The food and service was great, try the chicken burger! We liked that it was all outdoor dining but if you can’t cope with the heat you may struggle a little on really warm days! All the staff were super friendly, would definitely recommend checking them out!

Friendly service in the beginning. Too hot to eat outside. Flies were everywhere! No coils water. Puppies were cute and treated well. Long waiting time to see them in the heat.

The whole experience was really good. We were sat quickly (we did have a booking), the service and the food were both fast. The food tasted really good, and they were able to easily accommodate our dietary requirements. The puppies were so cute and all the girls there were lovely and very friendly :)

Took a friend here recently, we both had a really enjoyable time, food was great, we got to sit next to the glass fence that separates us from the puppies - so while eating we got to watch them playing. I recommend Jackon's top dog breakfast if your having trouble choosing something to eat.

Enjoyed the scallops bene (benedict). Daughter had a lovely crab omelette. The food is very good here, and I will take my husband here one day...he will suffer through the puppy patting part, but it may further my cause to buy a puppy! Friend had the biggest oreo thick shake I have ever seen! Looking forward to returning😊

Absolutely loved the atmosphere, staff and of course the puppies! However, I wasn’t too sure about the new menu, as the old eggs benedict croissant was the best ever- but overall, was great!
