Dog-Friendly Pubs In Norfolk
12 July 2019
When visiting somewhere new with the family, there’s a good chance you’ll want to bring your four-legged family members with you too, as a holiday just wouldn’t be the same without them. This means you may have slightly fewer options available to you when looking for places to visit, but luckily there are plenty of dog-friendly establishments out there.
There’s nothing better than a good pub lunch after a walk, so we thought we’d do a roundup of some of the best dog-friendly pubs around Norfolk.
This family orientated pub is the perfect place to visit if you’re bringing everybody, including the dog. The landlord records date back to 1673, so this pub is a real slice of history in a charming Norfolk village, which is a lovely place to visit in itself.
Enjoy some local ales, some lovely home cooked food, and relax in their beer garden when the weather allows (dogs are allowed in the pub, so don’t worry if it’s not beer garden weather when you visit).
One look at the Crown’s website, and you’ll quickly establish that they are a dog-friendly pub. Dogs of all shapes and sizes are very welcome at the Crown, and well-behaved humans are allowed in with them, so that’s good news if you’re planning a family day out in the area.
They also do a very popular Sunday roast, and if that’s something you like the sound of they advise you book ahead, as it gets very busy.
This pub is a really beautiful 16th-century building, complete with a thatched roof and distinctive black and white Tudor frame. Inside, you’ll be surrounded by wooden beams and beautiful fireplaces, which give the place a very traditional atmosphere.
Their food receives much praise and their cask ales and bottled beers have earned them a place in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, and it’s dog-friendly, so well worth a visit.
If you enjoy fresh locally sourced food, it doesn’t get much better the Salthouse Dun Cow. Their beef is reared just down the road, and they select the best cuts themselves. Richard, who brings their fresh seafood, catches it himself locally and delivers it within a few hours of landing, so it couldn’t possibly get much fresher. They also never knowingly serve any GM products.
Beer and ale wise, they offer a really good selection, and children and dogs are both very welcome.
The Fox at Lyng is really well-loved with locals, and is a real hub of activity for the local community. It’s equally popular with walkers and visitors, too, not least because all visitors are welcome, whether they have two legs or four.
They serve fresh and tasty food and host a community ‘Bake Off’ and bring street food style takeaways to the premises. You can even tie the knot there too! They’ve won all sorts of awards, and it’s definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.
We hope this has given you some inspiration for the next time you’re out and about with your family in Norfolk soon. Be sure to come and pay us a visit if you need a place to stay!
