London’s great. But with busy subways and packed streets, it can sometimes be a little dog-unfriendly. Sometimes you and your furry friend just need a bit of time out to take a paws from it all. So we’ve put together a list of dog friendly restaurants in London where you guys can hang out and get some grub.
To be honest, we were quite surprised that this classy spot allowed pups in. Although you can’t get take them into the main restaurant, you and Fido can pick up a spot at their window seats. Here, enjoy plates like padron peppers with sea salt, pickled aubergine, and croquetas, just remember to drop some under the table. You can’t book the window seats in advance but if you fancy leaving your dog at home, you can book on the widget at the side.
Red Lion and Sun
There’s nothing we love more than a classic pub and the Red Lion and Sun is a great example of this. With a wood burning fire, classic pub food, and great drinks, and just minutes from Hampstead Heath it’s the pawfect place to bring your little friend after a walk. Even better, if you’ve been out for a Sunday stroll, they do an incredible roast every week, with a range of options from pork belly to veggie nut roast. What more could you want?
Another classic pub that has stolen our hearts, The Camberwell Arms is an upmarket spot that serves great pub food with a refined flair. Think lamb but barbecued Ryleland lamb neck with smoked aubergine, freekah, and garlic yoghurt, or smoked ox tongue with bread and butter, pickles, and horseradish, instead of your usual fish and chips. They make everything from scratch, something that your dog will definitely appreciate when they mop up scraps from under the table. The friendly staff and the bowls of water they provide make this one of our favourite dog friendly restaurants in London.
Pig and Butcher
This beautiful building in Islington is known for their great meats, the perfect place to take a dog. They source the best meat the UK has to offer from across the country, and serve them in dishes so tasty, this will quickly become your new local. The menu is changed daily by their talented team, and you can expect dishes like Gatelands Farm rose veal with purple sprouting broccoli, or Ballindalloch Angus butcher’s steak with baby leaf herb salad. All made to taste even better by those begging puppy dog eyes at your side.
Duke of York St John’s Wood
Another venue that takes a classic pub and turns it on its head, Duke Of York serves up great grub in a friendly atmosphere. There’s something going on almost every night of the week, with different days dedicated to burger, steak, and Sunday roast specials. Situated just up the road from Regent’s Park, dropping in here for dishes like home-made salmon fishcakes, a steak, or a seabass fillet will make taking Rover for a stroll a much less arduous task. Their roaring fires, great kids menu, and brilliant attitude to anyone with four legs makes this one of our favourite dog friendly restaurants in London.
