Britons love their canine friends. As a matter of fact, there are some Britons who’d rather spend an evening enjoying a meal with their respective hounds than somebody else they know. For these folks, nothing can replace the dedication and loyalty that dogs give to their human masters. If you’re travelling with your dog and also want to experience dining or even grabbing a quick bite with your pet dog happily lapping at your feet, you simply have to visit any of these dog-friendly restaurants in the UK.
Gaucho Hampstead in North London
Known for its rather intimate dining space, this North London restaurant that serves one of the most sumptuous Argentinian steaks on the planet is perfect for a lovely evening with your pet. Gaucho Hampstead really does come to life every Saturday as the floor can easily turn into a field of furry animals complete with adornments that mimic the style of their pet parents.
The Jolly Farmer in Berkshire
For a taste of history, The Jolly Farmer is a must-try for those who love to dine in a picturesque countryside that has become synonymous with Cookham Dean. The Jolly Farmer is a pub that was established in 1788. Many of the pub’s original elements and features are still in their prime, allowing guests and their furry friends to take in as much of the scenery as the food that is served.
The Durham Ox in York
There really is nothing fancy in this York village inn except that the family members running it are known dog-lovers themselves. With only the freshest, locally-sourced ingredients used in their recipes, the Durham Ox is more like paying a visit to your grandma who is going to prepare for you and your pet a delectable treat that will surely be etched in your memories for many years to come.
The Horse and Groom in Wilmington
They’ve got one of the most extensive lists of sparkling wines in this side of the British Isles. The Horse and Groom is a favorite among snack-grabbers and quick-biters who find it a lot easier to enjoy a bite when downed with a pint or two of their favorite alcoholic beverage. You pet dog gets a bowl of treats and water, too so both of you can have the best snacking experience in the UK. Don’t worry, your dog’s treats are on the house.
Bourgee in Southend-on-Sea
Feast on a Josper grilled steak while your pet sits from across the table. Dine in luxury at the Bourgee without breaking the bank. And if you’ll come with your loved one together with your dog, you can always let your canine friend stay at the sun terrace for a while. The scenery itself is romantic and the food simply extravagant.
