Top 5 Dog Friendly London Pubs

Posted by Ash K on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 2

There are some pubs in London that truly appreciate man’s best friend.

The law on dogs in pubs and restaurants is very clear. Although dogs are not allowed where food is being prepared, in other areas it is at the proprietor’s discretion. If you can’t bear to leave your dog at home, then there are a number of pubs in Britain’s capital that are known for being canine friendly. Wherever you are in the city, you are never too far from a pub that will welcome your dog with open arms.

In the heart of Notting Hill lies the ‘Prince Bonaparte’, a pub that is known throughout the London dog community as a friendly place to go. The pub is popular in its own right, although it is a small, quaint place, and can therefore be busy at peak times. There is a pub section and a restaurant section, and the friendly bar staff will be more than happy to pour you a pint, and give you a bowl of water for your four-legged friend.

If you are based in North London, then the pubs of Angel, or Islington in general are likely to be tempting. Islington is home to some of the finest Georgian architecture in the city, and the pubs are no exception. ‘The Albion’ just off Upper Street is one of the most picturesque in the city, and is also one of the most dog friendly. During the summer months, the Albion’s beer garden is often full of people (and dogs) enjoying the sunshine, although it is equally tempting in the winter, with its roaring log fire and cosy interior.

One of London’s quirkiest pubs is located in the South East. ‘Simon the Tanner’ is a free house (i.e. an independent pub) just off Bermondsey Street. The pub is known for its excellent varieties on traditional lager, ale and porter, and is also extremely friendly. If you are looking for somewhere a little more ‘alternative’ but still dog-friendly, then this truly is one of the city’s hidden gems.

If these pubs have whet your appetite for London, then why not do some research online, and make a break of it with a deal on a London hotel. London is easily accessible from anywhere in the UK, and there are plenty of great offers on extended weekend breaks. Besides, if you have a dog, now that you know he or she can join in the fun, you’ve got no excuse!
