Top 5 dog friendly pubs in the Cotswolds

Food and Drink, Pet friendly

We know that it can be difficult to find information on dog-friendly pubs,  so we’ve put together a list of our top 5 dog friendly pubs in the Cotswolds!

The Cotswolds is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and with so many opportunities for walking and an abundance of honey-coloured villages to visit, the Cotswolds is a wonderful holiday destination for both those on two legs and four. Because the Cotswolds spans five different counties, we’ve picked our favourite dog friendly pubs in each, from those with nearby picturesque walks to those that make your dog feel extra special.

Worcestershire: The Chase Inn

This pub couldn’t be more suited to those with dogs. As the Chase Inn is nestled in the Malvern hills, you and your dog can enjoy a hike through the 3000 acres of open countryside before stopping by to enjoy a hard-earned beverage or hearty meal. With a large and well-kept beer garden, you and your dog can sit outside on a sunny day and admire the views of the Black Mountains.

Wiltshire: The Lansdowne Arms

Again, this newly renovated pub sits in the perfect place for a relaxing drink after a walk in the surrounding beautiful countryside of Derry Hill. The Lansdowne Arms welcomes families with open arms and even provides four-legged members with biscuits so that your dog can enjoy a treat whilst you do too.

Warwickshire: Tom o’ the Wood

Enjoy a warm welcome at this traditional pub from both the staff and resident black Labrador, Boris. Sitting within a stone’s throw from two beautiful canals, the Tom o’ the Wood is the perfect setting to enjoy a delicious lunch with your four-legged friend before heading into the idyllic village of Rowington for a walk.

Oxfordshire: The Bull and Butcher

This delightful pub lies the quintessential village of Turnville, a location which has featured in many TV programmes and films, such as the Vicar of Dibley, Midsomer Murders, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Goodnight Mr Tom. Bring your dog along and enjoy one of the many fine ales the Bull and Butcher has on offer whilst overlooking the beautiful scenery.

Gloucestershire: The Royal

This lively and charming pub has much to offer those with a four legged friend, from the sunny beer garden to cosy open fires in the bar, meaning you and your dog can relax to your heart’s content. Whilst you enjoy the delicious seasonal produce on The Royal's menu, the staff will make a fuss of your dog and even treat them to biscuits.
