The snowcaps have finally melted and the sun has finally got his hat on! When walking our four legged furiends, there’s no better way to end it than in a beer garden, grabbing a bite to eat, wearing a pair of sunnies and clutching a cold pint of beer.
We’ve compiled this handy list of our favourite dog friendly beer gardens in Wales, Scotland and England! So grab your lead, your suncream and plan your next bit of fun in the sun.
Our favourite thing about this beautiful garden is the bookable beach huts. There may be no sand, but the pastel colours, the chilled out vibes, and the fairy-light glow are enough to make us believe we’re on the beach. You and your pooch will feel super cosy in this area and with three beach huts to choose from you’re spoilt for choice. This place also brews their own craft beers, tasty!
Glasgow – Scotland
This magical beer garden has just been given a recent make over. Our favourite part isn’t just the big heated seating area, undercover canopies and tiered seating on their famous hill but it’s their magical fairy lights, beautiful greenery, fire pits and a private Solarium. They even have complimentary sun tan lotion for when it gets toasty. Dog’s are always given a warm welcome here and are always given a fresh bowl of water instantaneously!
This pop up, blissful little sun-trap has a growing popularity with both gin lovers, dog lovers and those looking for something a little quirky. They have a large variety of gins and cocktails for you to enjoy in the gardens, that’s not forgetting some tasty alcoholic drinks for the dog handler. The dog will always be welcome to a bowl of fresh water and a couple of belly rubs.
This beautiful, riverside beer garden is situated on the River Teifi just up river from Cardigan. The Ferry Inn boasts its own jetty, meaning you can get there by kayak or boat. This beautiful Inn sits over the river so whether you’re inside or out outside you’ll feel like you’re in the water!
The Avalon, Balham
This beautiful, dog friendly, beer garden was rated by Time Out as one of London’s best. It’s whimsical, dreamy, filled with plants and secluded, making it easy to forget you are London. They have an outdoor lounge area filled with giant comfortable cushions, wooden booths and an alfresco bar. They love our furry pals and provide plenty of doggie biscuits, fresh water and belly rubs! An ideal spot for you and your pooch to while away gloriously sunny days.
This trendy, urban beer garden offers you and your pooch a serene slice of calm in the midst of Edinburgh’s city centre. They have a tasty range of cocktails all printed on an Alice in Wonderland-themed cocktail menu filled with hilarious pop-culture references. Your pooch will always get a warm welcome here and we particularly love the laidback and relaxed vibe. Those twinkling fairy lights make this one of the most aesthetically pleasing outdoor spaces in the city.
Set alongside the River Dee, this provides the perfect setting to enjoy the sunshine. The Corn Mill has been grinding flour at this site for at least 700 years – reopening as a pub and restaurant in June 2000. Inside, we love the classic old beams and the water wheel turning slowly behind the bar. However, outside is even more beautiful. The decks outside are built directly over the mill race and the rapids, and on the opposite bank of the river, is a classic steam train for you to watch as it puffs away. We could sit outside here with our pup fur-ever (when it’s not raining of course).
Siberia Vodka Bar
This rooftop terrace is the perfect little spot for you and your pooch to visit when the sun is out. Siberia is right in the thick of Aberdeen’s social scene on Belmont Street boasting great views of the Union Terrace garden. This trendy venue is well known for it’s well-stocked vodka bar, but also it’s friendliness to our beloved dogs. They even once hosted a doggy disco for the Guide Dogs!
The Volunteers Tavern
This place is just around the corner from the bustling Cabot Circus. Here you and your pooch can enjoy a refreshing pint in this calm, laid back, leafy walled beer garden. You might just bump into one of their resident pub dog Mumma bear Treacle. This place hosts regular local beer festivals and garden parties. The food here is also spot on with hand-stretched pizzas and even tasty roasts.
