Dog friendy pubs

Recommended Posts

I've just booked a table for 2 at a village pub for me and Mrs D for tonight. As we would be taking Buster too, i asked if they were dog friendly.

The young lad on the phone had a brilliant reply.

"We have dog bowls outside sir" 

I replied by asking what size they were as he's quite a big dog,  a male black Labrador.

Would he be able to get in one of these bowls ? 

 

 

"No sir they have water in them for a drink if you want to sit outside" 

 

I asked him if it will be raining. Lol

 

Anyway booked a table for 2. Buster can wait in the truck.

Sorry dont get this dog friendly mullarky. After collecting my brother from down south.  we stayed in a country pub to break the journey. at dinner that night a couple with two large labs sat at a table across the way. each time the waitress walked past the dogs barked at her, wasn't a good experience. my dogs were in the car

Why not leave the dog at home? Bet when you get to the pub there will be some whispered comments and stares from his mates. :whistling:

We are out for the day, and just fancied a bite to eat on the way home. Im not fussed if they will or wont allow dog's. It was the reply i got. 

I take mine out to socialise, he's better behaved than most kids i see out with parents.

My old dogs were always made welcome in certain pubs,but not in the eating areas-which was fine by me. Some people were intimidated by them and my pair did look kinda scary (Boxer & Bullmastiff) so i was always wary with the food temptation.

I have been known to tell parents with hooligan kids that my dogs are better behaved than their kids! That was on a pub lawn in front of a crowd of folks that were fed up of the out of control kids tearing about, whilst my two labs lay quietly by me.

I take mine to dog friends places and he sits / lies down at my feet or under the table and goes to sleep normally. 

 

I absolutely hate it however when out for a meal and someone else’s dog keeps barking whining or causing bother. 

I think more restaurants / pubs should say something to people. 

 

One blokes hound barked on and off for a good hour before the bar manager came over and told them to shut it up or move on. Funny they managed to keep it quiet after that.

In the lakes most places let dogs in, otherwise they'd be alienating half the potential customers. We rarely take ours to walk round town and call in pub for lunch. It's bad enough with other people's never mind ours adding to the fray.

On a night out I prefer no dogs in the place if taking my Mrs out. Preferably no bloody kids either.

Well we went out for a meal with Buster, he stayed in the truck sleeping. Busy day. 

Too bloomin dark in there, candles all on the tables, couldnt read the menu, then to top it all when my food came, in a bowl on a plate. (WHY) i emptied the food directly on to a white napkin that was on the white plate. 

It was that dark i couldnt see it, (honest)

Don’t go for a pub meal in Northumberland if you don’t like being in the pub/restaurant with dogs. We stayed in High Newton in June and went in several pubs/ restaurants and they were full of dogs both inside and outside. I’m not complaining as we took our two labs and springer with no bother

I don’t take my dogs into a pub if having a meal, but would take them in if i’m just having a pint.

I don’t mind if there are dogs when i’m eating so long as they’re well behaved, same goes for kids.
