Dog Friendly Food Pubs


Yes, Fido, you can come! The best local pubs where you can EAT and take along your four-legged friend

The thought of a big, bouncing St. Bernard jumping around a restaurant makes most pubs give a flat 'no' to dogs. Indeed, most use the excuse that it's illegal to have a dog in a food environment - which it's not.

But then some landlords appreciate that having a well-behaved dog and wanting to enjoy a bite to eat isn't the crime of the century either. Or being banished to the garden isn't ideal when it's the middle of winter. So here's our guide to the best local pubs serving food where four-legged friends are welcome - with responsible owners!

Call first: our advice is that you should always call the venue first just to check, because even the doggiest-friendly pubs can be tricky places during peak times.

Swanborough, Hannington, Swindon, SN6 7RN
