The venue hosted a number of fundraising activities between April 23 and 25 in a bid to raise money for the Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home.

East Coast FM broadcasted live from the event, which included prizes for ‘best dressed dog’ and ‘prettiest pooch’  as well as a quiz night, ‘doggy dinner’ and coffee morning.

More than a hundred dog lovers are said to have visited the Mercat Grill in the course of the weekend, with £800 raised for the Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home.
