Why choose a dog-friendly pub to stay in?

By basing yourself in a pub, you’re in the perfect place to explore the countryside or coastline with your dog(s). After a long day of exploring, you can kick off your muddy boots and relax in the comfort of the pub with delicious home-cooked dishes (and a glass of wine or beer) in front of the fire with your pet by your side… true bliss!


Dog-friendly facilities

Some dog-friendly pubs really spoil your pet rotten – from dog beds and paw-washing stations to dog bowls, dog menus and treats. One of our favourites even offers Snuffle Beer – a tasty non-alcoholic drink that your dog can enjoy whilst you are sampling a pint of local ale!
