Dog-Friendly Pubs In Lancashire
31 May 2019
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 is a Lancaster rite of passage once the sun comes out, and 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, and 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!
This country pub is set in the Forest of Bowland and 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 of their food is sourced from local Lancashire farms and dairies, and 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!
This welcoming country pub in the heart of Caton village is no longer near any sort of railway, as 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 really 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, and 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.
This historic Lancaster pub might be 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, as 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, and 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.
This lovely village pub serves German and English food, and is very proud to be dog-friendly. There’s a cosy and welcoming atmosphere, and 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, and 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 pubs you can call in to with your dog if you’re out and about in Lancashire. Be sure to check the availability of our Lancashire holiday parks if you need a pet-friendly place to stay!
