Bubbledogs sells the humble street snack alongside a choice of champagnes — starting at £22 a glass.

A gourmet dog costs £48 with an additional 15 per cent service charge — taking the total to £55.20.

A glass of the cheapest bubbly — Veuve Fourny, Blanc de Blancs, Brut Nature — costs £22 with a bottle priced at £110.

But rather than indistinct meat and fried onions, the dogs come in a range of flavours, including lobster and Beluga caviar — and a vegetarian option.

Celebrity chef Rosemary Shrager, 73, tweeted after a visit: “We tried the lobster hot dog and the truffle hot dog. Both were absolutely delicious.”

The pop-up opened on May 10 on the terrace of the five-star 45 Park Lane hotel in London’s Mayfair and will serve until the end of September.

The hotel’s Elliot Grover, who cooked at this year’s Oscars, said: “For devoted Bubbledogs enthusiasts, it’s the perfect chance to savour their beloved gourmet hotdogs again.”

But one reviewer on OpenTable wrote: “Service was brilliant.

“But the hotdogs were so small, with no fries or even garnish.”

But £1 from each gourmet dog will be donated to youth homelessness charity Centrepoint.

The pricey dogs’ diner comes after TV’s Gordon Ramsay was slammed for charging £24.50 for fish — with chips £7 extra — in his River Restaurant at London’s Savoy hotel.
