We’ve compiled this handy list of our favourite dog friendly beer gardens in Wales, Scotland, and England! So grab your lead, a spot of suncream, and plan your next bit of fun in the sun.
This magical beer garden has just been given a recent make over. Our favourite part isn’t just the big heated seating area, undercover canopies, and tiered seating on their famous hill but it’s their magical fairy lights, beautiful greenery, fire pits, and a private Solarium. They even have complimentary sun tan lotion for when it gets toasty.
Dog’s are always given a warm welcome here and are always given a fresh bowl of water instantaneously!
Princess of Wales
This wonderful beer garden is our favourite place to spend a sunny afternoon. The decked outdoor seating area of the Princess of Wales, sits by the pretty River Lea. Virtually within touching distance of the Narrowboats. Tables pour out of the pub and complete with cushioned benches and blankets. The food is totally woof-worthy, with dishes for brunch, sharing boards, tasty mains and a weekend burger shack. Dogs are welcome inside and out, and will always be welcomed with a tasty treat.
The Inn Deep a great place to pop in with your pooch after a walk. The beer garden is out the front, nestled in a cosy spot next to a 19th-century bridge on the banks of the River Kelvin. Dogs are adored here, and always provided with fuss and treats. Standard rules apply particularly for humans: no barking, no humping, and no peeing where you shouldn’t pee Inside.
You and your pooch can enjoy drinks with a wide range of beers from around the world, and plenty of tasty meals. There’s also an arched wooden area, with dimmed lights, perfect if our unpredictable weather takes a turn for the worse.
We’re quite in love with this quintessential village pub. Not only do they welcome dogs with open arms, but they have a jar full of treats on hand to say hello. Their food and drink menu is so tasty that it’s won some great awards. It also boasts some lovely views of the large common nearby. To help support safety restrictions, they created reservable “dining pods”. One other thing we love about this brilliant place, is the many walking routes found on the pawstep including Nickey Line and the Ver Valley.
The Ferry Inn
This beautiful, riverside dog friendly beer garden is situated on the River Teifi just up river from Cardigan. The Ferry Inn boasts its own jetty, meaning you can get there by kayak or boat. This beautiful Inn sits over the river so whether you’re inside or out outside you’ll feel like you’re in the water!
Brewhouse & Kitchen – Cardiff
Our favourite thing about this beautiful garden is the bookable beach huts. There may be no sand, but the pastel colours, the chilled out vibes, and the fairy-light glow are enough to make us believe we’re on the beach.
You and your pooch will feel super cosy in this area and with three beach huts to choose from you’re spoilt for choice. This place also brews their own craft beers, tasty!
This beautiful, dog friendly beer garden was rated by Time Out as one of London’s best. It’s whimsical, dreamy, filled with plants and secluded, making it easy to forget you are London.
They have an outdoor lounge area filled with giant comfortable cushions, wooden booths and an alfresco bar. They love our furry pals and provide plenty of doggie biscuits, fresh water and belly rubs! An ideal spot for you and your pooch to while away gloriously sunny days.
The Corn Mill
Set alongside the River Dee, this dog friendly beer garden provides the perfect setting to enjoy the sunshine. The Corn Mill has been grinding flour at this site for at least 700 years – reopening as a pub and restaurant in June 2000. Inside, we love the classic old beams and the water wheel turning slowly behind the bar. However, outside is even more beautiful.
The decks outside are built directly over the mill race and the rapids, and on the opposite bank of the river, is a classic steam train for you to watch as it puffs away. We could sit outside here with our pup fur-ever (when it’s not raining of course).
Now this place has a view we could all get lost in. The Harp in the Wirral has far-reaching views of the Dee Estuary to Moel Famau and the Clwydian range. Dogs are more than welcome here, and like any classic country pub always receive the warmest welcome. While you’re eating in this wonderful beer garden, it’s possible to spot some beautiful birdlife. No food available here, but together you can unwind with the sound of bird song, the breath of fresh air and a nice beer to wash it all down with.
Now you can feel the sand between your paws right in the centre of London. This urban, beach club-style lounge is open seasonally for cocktails and light bites. The garden is complete with cosy day beds, huts and cabanas (though you can’t reserve them with your towels). This unique beer garden in Fulham allows dogs in between midday and 5pm. In the summer months, the beach provides perfect venue for digging. In the winter months, it’s transformed to a magical alpine playground with heated igloos and chalets.
This trendy, urban beer garden offers you and your pooch a serene slice of calm in the midst of Edinburgh’s city centre. They have a tasty range of cocktails all printed on an Alice in Wonderland-themed cocktail menu filled with hilarious pop-culture references.
Your pooch will always get a warm welcome here and we particularly love the laidback and relaxed vibe. Those twinkling fairy lights make this one of the most aesthetically pleasing outdoor spaces in the city.
Siberia Vodka Bar
This rooftop terrace is the perfect little spot for you and your pooch to visit when the sun is out. Siberia is right in the thick of Aberdeen’s social scene on Belmont Street boasting great views of the Union Terrace garden.
This trendy venue is well known for it’s well-stocked vodka bar, but also it’s friendliness to our beloved dogs. They even once hosted a doggy disco for the Guide Dogs!
