Dog-Friendly Pubs In Lancashire

31 May 2019

Dog friendly pubs

If you are a dog owner, you will know how welcome dog-friendly pubs are. There’s nothing more enjoyable than a walk in the sunshine, followed by a nice refreshing drink with your four-legged friend in tow. Plus, leaving your dog at home while you head out and about isn’t always an option, so having a good idea in advance of where they will and won’t be allowed is always helpful.

With that in mind, we thought we would do a little roundup of some of the best dog-friendly pubs around Lancashire, in case you plan on visiting any time soon.


The Water Witch – Lancaster

The Water Witch is a Lancaster rite of passage once the sun comes out. You will usually find a few dogs sat outside with their owners. Or making friends with the dog lovers that frequent the pub.

This pub is situated on Lancaster Canal, and so it is the perfect place to begin or end a walk along it. Whether you want to go for a short stroll or make a day of it you can enjoy some food and a drink. And your dog will be allowed in the bar area with you. They even have treats available!


The Pendle Inn – Barley

This country pub is set in the Forest of Bowland. It is the perfect place to stop if you are walking or cycling in the local area. They serve real ale and food to refresh you after exploring the beautiful local countryside. And your dog will be welcome as well.

All their food is sourced from local Lancashire farms and dairies. They serve ales from local breweries and micros. Menu items include Bury black pudding fritters, Lancashire cheese, and onion pie, and roast topside of Pendle beef – a real taste of the local fare!


The Station Hotel – Caton

This welcoming country pub in the heart of Caton village is no longer near any sort of railway. The one that once served the village has been gone for around 50 years. But it is still easy to get to by car or public transport.

It even makes for a nice walk or bike ride from Lancaster, and the food and refreshment at the end will be well-earned. It’s the perfect place to take your dog and sit and enjoy a nice refreshing pint of beer. Plus the food is fantastic, so it’s not hard to see why it’s one of the most popular pubs in the Lune Valley!

It also happens to be only a short distance from our Crook O’Lune Holiday Park, and not far from several of our other parks in the area.


The Three Mariners – Lancaster

This historic Lancaster pub is right in the city centre. But they’ve managed to maintain that cosy country pub feel. And this pub is a big hit with the locals. The food is fantastic and well-behaved dogs are welcome. Dom, the landlord understands how frustrating it is for groups of people to not be able to eat or drink out together because they have a four-legged family member.

Their food is homemade using locally sourced produce. They offer nine ales and two craft lines from local and national breweries and even won the Lunesdale CAMRA Pub of the Year in 2017.


The Hare and Hounds – Abbey Village

This lovely village pub serves German and English food, and is very proud to be dog friendly. There’s a cosy and welcoming atmosphere. Plus the location is great which makes it very popular with walkers and cyclists.
Having a German landlady means that the German food on the menu is very much authentic. It’s also cooked with the best ingredients. So perfect for anybody who either loves German food already or fancies trying something new.
And of course there are plenty of English pub grub favourites on the menu too. And there is plenty of entertainment including a darts board, pool table, and live sports.

We hope this has given you a few ideas for dog friendly pubs in Lancashire. Be sure to check the availability of our Lancashire holiday parks if you need a pet-friendly place to stay!
