with my dogPubs, Cafes, Restaurants that welcome dogs: Another great tip on holidaying with your dogs –and even before choosing your holiday destination–  is to check out the local services for dog friendly places to eat and drink.

Just like me, I am sure that when you go on holiday you will want to eat out a couple of times, and pop in the local pub for a drink or two. It sort of goes with the holiday spirit don’t you think? With that in mind, it is always helpful to have carried out a bit of research before you set off.

Check with the holiday accommodation if they can recommend anywhere, and look online at the local amenities for the area. Most places will promote their dog friendly policies, and if in doubt, pick up the phone and ask them – they are sure to want to help and encourage you along to their place.

For example, here at Bowerland Cottage Holidays, we have numerous local eating and drinking places that really do welcome dogs. Some of them suggest that you would feel more comfortable eating in the bar, many of them have lovely outside space – with stunning views of the Dartmoor countryside. I am more than happy to make suggestions and offer opinions to help ensure that all our guests, and, most especially, our doggy guests are welcome wherever they go!

Check our Dog Friendly Devon page for more information..

Do you have anywhere that you would recommend? Have you had a fantastic meal, great pub for drinks etc, that has welcomed you and your dog? It will be great to hear about it. Post your comments below.

    pub in Sampford Courtenay – was it called the New Inn (I think there’s only the one)? Good food and friendly. I didn’t take my dog in but a calmer dog would’ve been welcome. Near to a local train station too

    Yes I think you are right Harriet, it is a cosy pub, with good food and a lovely large garden. We are so lucky having so many dog friendly pubs near us.
