There are two types of restaurants in the world: those who welcome dogs and those who do not. As pug owners, it’s always hard to find dog friendly restaurants and pubs that we actually like.
In this post, we list the best dog-friendly restaurants and pubs across the UK from the major cities like London and Birmingham to those smaller locations. So if you live in or near to any of these places and want to eat and drink, go check them out with your dogs/pugs and see how awesome they are for yourself.
If you have been to these places, we would love to hear your experience. Or know any others you want to recommend, just leave a comment at the end of this post.
