Just set back from Regent’s Canal, this sweet riverside pub is ideal if you and your dog need a break during a walk along the water. The atmosphere is fun and friendly, and dogs are allowed to roam as they please. The pub’s glorious terrace looks out on the water and if you’re lucky enough to nab a table outside, you can watch the boats float on by.

The clue's in the name with this one. Brewdog bars across the country welcome four-legged friends with open arms. They even go one step further and allow their staff to bring their dogs to work with them and offer ‘pawternity leave’ if any team member welcomes a new dog into the family. Is this the best job ever? What’s more, if your dog is celebrating a special birthday, Brewdog host ‘Dog Pawties’, in which your pooch and their furry mates, donning dog-sized party hats, can drink special dog beer and scoff on doggy birthday cake.

Mews of Mayfair
For the posh pooch in your life who refuses to slum it, Mews of Mayfair offers a more elegant drinking spot in the centre of London. The sophisticated restaurant and bar serves up delicious British cuisine and allows smaller dogs to accompany you whilst you dine in the main brasserie. But these guys aren’t sizeist – larger dogs are allowed to roam free in the courtyard and bar areas.
