In keeping with Hospitality Industry Regulations, Fortnum & Mason welcomes Assistance Dogs in all of our restaurants. Please be advised on the following details:
What is an Assistance Dog?
Thousands of disabled people rely on an assistance dog to help them with day to day activities that many people take for granted. You may be surprised to learn that it’s not only blind
people that are helped by assistance dogs. Assistance dogs are also trained to help people with hearing difficulties, epilepsy, diabetes, physical mobility problems and more.
Assistance dogs carry out a variety of practical tasks for people as well as supporting their independence and confidence. Assistance dogs are not pets and are treated as ‘auxiliary aids’
As a result, please be advised that this welcome does not extend to family household pets.
