Walkies! Dog friendly pubs and cafes

Dogs may be man’s and woman’s best friend but we all need to stop off for a rest now and then. Whether it’s a bowl of water while the master samples a tasty real ale or even to curl up in front of a roaring fire follow our lead to Northern Warwickshire’s dog friendliest places.

Posh Pooch Palace

At Planters Garden Centre dogs have their own Farmhouse Kitchen Restaurant area. Tables with hooks to hold the lead, bowls of water, a sink to wash hands and tasty food too.

Caper on the canals

Along Northern Warwickshire’s miles of canals (we have the Coventry, Ashby and Fazeley canals) there are oodles of pubs and cafes welcoming canines. On the Coventry Canal, dogs can join you for cake and a coffee in the café at Pooley Country Park or pub grub at the Kings Head at Atherstone, Anchor at Hartshill or Samuel Barlow at Alvecote Marina.

Let sleeping dogs lie…

In front of a roaring fire at these country pubsRose Inn at Baxterley but mind the ducks on the pond at the front! Or try a doggy treat at the Horse & Jockey at Bentley or the Griffin Inn

And If his master insists on real ale dogs are welcome at Church End Brewery Tap, and the Angel Ale House.
