What makes a great dog-friendly pub? For us it’s all about the details: treats on the bar, fresh water bowls, maybe a garden with plenty of shade. For our dogs, it’s mostly a case of sniffing other dogs and getting a good belly rub from any passers-by.
Whatever you’re looking for, finding a good pub that loves dogs often feels like a mission accomplished – and there’s nothing better than a recommendation from fellow dog owners. That’s why we picked out five of our favourites to share with you. Cheers!
The Railway Inn – Whitacre Heath, Birmingham
This traditional country pub allows dogs in the bar area where they are as well looked-after as their owners. Reviewers say that “nothing is too much trouble” for the team there, with a wide range of food, drinks and entertainment. And there’s an outside play area that’s fun for kids – and dogs too.
