Calling All Dog Owners! Doggy Coffee Morning & a New ‘Yappy Hour’ at the Mercat Grill

We’ve got two new doggy events for charity coming up!  On Saturday 5th February bring your best-four-legged friend to our very popular ‘Doggy Coffee Morning’ from 9:30am to 11:30am.  And on Saturday 5th March, ‘Yappy Hour’ launches, where owners can indulge in a little drink & small tapas from 4-5pm with all proceeds going to the Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home.


Both events give the chance to catch up with fellow fido owners and will now become a regular, monthly fixture on our calendar – with the Doggy Coffee Morning running every alternate month to Yappy Hour – and always on the first Saturday of the month.


The Doggy Coffee Morning is £7.50 per person and this includes a tea/coffee and breakfast roll.  The Yappy Hour is £12.50 per person and everyone will get a drink (small glass of wine/bottle of beer or soft/hot drink) and a small tapa to enjoy!


Graham Blaikie, owner of the Mercat Grill in the village of Whitecraig, near Musselburgh said: “Our last Doggy Coffee Morning was such a huge success that we’ve now decided to run it every second month, on a Saturday morning!  With our new Yappy Hour, running every alternate month.


“It’s really wonderful to have these events back up and running again.  To see people catching up, laughing, having good dog related chat and all these gorgeous dogs back in my venue, is just amazing – whilst also raising money for a great cause, the Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home.


“We’re also fundraising for this charity with our own Doggy Calendar for 2022.  For only £12.50 (or £20 if you buy two) you can have this super looking calendar, featuring professional shots of our four-legged customers and every penny of profit goes to the Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home.  To buy one, simply come in and pick one up.”

A Lunch of Learning & Tasting Lindores Abbey Distillery’s Single Malt Whisky

We’re holding a Whisky Tasting lunch on Tuesday 19th October with a special guest from Lindores Abbey Distillery in Fife, which classes itself as the ‘spiritual home of Scotch whisky’!


Join us from 1pm and we’ll have a sociable, fun and informative session, which will be enjoyed over a delicious three-course lunch.


Murray Stevenson, the brand ambassador from Lindores Abbey Distillery will be talking to our guests, taking you through the intriguing history of Lindores Abbey (located in Lindores, Fife) which apparently has widely recognised links to the earliest written reference of Scotch whisky.  Its whisky has been revived after 523 years and the spirit is back flowing from its copper stills, of this ancient site.  And you can sample and enjoy it on 19th October from 1pm for only £25pp! Join us for some great chat on this single malt whisky over a three-course lunch.

To book a place, simply call 0800 124 4112 or email info@mercatgrill.com.
