The Bernards Inn, The Station, and Bella’s Burger Shack Welcome Dogs and Their Owners all Summer Long

BERNARDSVILLE and BASKING RIDGE, N.J., May 19, 2014--Hampshire Destination Properties announced today that its trio of local restaurants in Bernardsville and Basking Ridge, NJ, will welcome dogs for outdoor dining all summer long. The Bernards Inn and The Station in Bernardsville, along with Bella’s Burger Shack in Basking Ridge, will participate.


Beginning Monday, June 2, The Bernards Inn will offer Yappy Hour and dog-friendly dining every Monday on the terrace beginning at 3:30 p.m., while The Station and Bella’s Burger Shack will welcome dogs and their two-legged companions to dine on their patios every day and evening during their regular business hours.

Each eatery will offer a unique dining experience, from upscale terrace dining, wine flights and cocktails at The Bernards Inn—New Jersey’s only AAA four-diamond restaurant and boutique hotel--to family and casual dining at The Station and Bella’s Burger Shack. While humans drink and dine, Fido will savor all-natural gourmet treats provided by Cherrybrook Premium Pet Supplies of Phillipsburg and Bedminster.

“Bernardsville and Basking Ridge are dog-friendly communities, and when we first welcomed dogs to The Bernards Inn a few years ago, it was a big hit,” said Proprietor Harold Imperatore. “People enjoyed going out on the town with their pooches so much that we decided to extend the canine invitation to our guests at The Station and Bella’s Burger Shack as well this summer.”

All well-behaved dogs on leashes are welcome. Reservations are only necessary at The Bernards Inn and can be made by calling 908-766-0002.
