Dog Friendly – Pubs, Restaurants, and Cafes

Having a day out or holiday with your canine companion can get a little bit tricky if it’s a warm day and you want to take a bite to eat. Dog friendly establishments are becoming more popular but there is no way of knowing where you can go without doing research first. Here at Star Paws we are doing the research for you and putting together a list of all dog friendly places to visit locally and further a field. Our first blog is a list of pubs / restaurants / cafes, which will be updated as we find new places.

If you have visited any establishments that you know are dog friendly then please let us know and we will add it to our list.
