Dog-friendly Pub

Dog friendly pubs and restaurants in the UK

Dine out comfortable in the knowledge that your pet dog is welcome to join you at one of the dog friendly places to eat listed on DogPeople.

We list a wide range of pubs, bars and cafés across the UK, geared up to accommodate your dog while you enjoy a meal, drink or a snack. Pubs and cafes that welcome your pet are the perfect accompaniment to a good walk with your dog, so do check out our dog blog which contains plenty of ideas of places to go across the country.

We at DogPeople are very partial to enjoying meals out and we have reported on our experiences with those dog friendly cafes, pubs and restaurants listed on our pages. You can see what we've had to say (often with photos of the food we've enjoyed) wherever you see our 'DogPeople Says' link. Often a great sign of a dog-welcoming pub is the landlord's own pet freely wandering around. A number of the pubs we've visited ourselves over the years provide water and treats for your dog.
