It’s a problem dog owners have to solve everywhere they go – how can I enjoy a few drinks or a great meal out without leaving my furry best friend behind?
We’re always on the lookout for pubs where our dogs can be sure of a friendly welcome and a bowl of water, so to help you out, we’ve put together this quick list of where both you and your pooch will be welcome to enjoy great food and craft drinks!
The Gillygate has been trading since the 19th Century and dogs are more welcome in all areas of the pub, and even to stay in the guest rooms overnight. Enjoy some great pub grub or pizza cooked in a real pizza oven along with your drinks. The Gillygate also offers a fantastic beer garden with plenty of space for your furry friends to mingle!
The Whippet Inn
As dog-friendly as you would expect a pub called The Whippet to be, with a roomy beer garden in the back for 2 and 4-legged guests to enjoy. The Whippet Inn has a wide selection of real ales, wines and cocktails, as well as specialising in mouth-watering cuts of beef.
Stonegate Yard Bar
The fantastic restaurant makes Stonegate Yard a must visit without a dog, but the covered and heated courtyard is a fabulous place to enjoy some real ale with your food and the company of your canine companion!
Eagle & Child
Dating back to 1640, this historic pub is the perfect example of what makes York so unique. Dogs are welcome across the ground floor, where you can enjoy some fantastic ales with homemade food in a traditional pub environment.
This one-of-a-kind Viking-themed bar sells coffee and cakes in the day, and meads, ales and meat platters in the evening, and welcomes dogs all day. Enjoy drinking mead from a Viking horn, and Valhalla’s own craft ales, not sold anywhere else!
Duke of York
The Duke of York can be found at the top of York’s most famous medieval area, the Shambles. The pub offers fantastic locally sourced food as well as a great range of beers from Leeds Brewery. Dogs are welcome in the downstairs bar.
The Mason’s Arms
The Mason’s Arms boasts fantastic views of the river Foss and the City Walls, and makes a great spot to enjoy some fine food and hand-pulled ales, and dogs love to enjoy the sun in the secluded beer terrace.
