From Border Collies and Bull Terriers to Poodles and Pugs, we’re a nation of dog lovers and as the weather warms up, what could be better than a good walk ending in a dog-friendly pub?

No. 5 Bridge Street, Winchester

In the heart of Winchester by the river, this pub is perfect for walks with your four-legged friends. No.5 has a great bar area and courtyard which allows dogs. There’s a huge wine list, a great beer selection and interesting cocktail list.

5 Bridge Street, Winchester, SO23 0HN


The Bush Inn, Ovington

Another waterside pub, this time on the Itchen. The Pilgrim’s Way meanders alongside, which is always popular with ramblers and dog walkers. Enjoy food ranging from baked Camembert and fish boards to honey glazed ham and swordfish.

The Iron Duke, Stratfield Saye

The friendly owners provide refreshments for dogs and owners. Cod and cips, pesto, pork belly and vegetable wellington all feature on the menu. There’s a large enclosed field with plenty of footpaths close by and great food available all day.

The New Forest Inn, Emery Down

With ponies ambling past the front door, this pub is one of the most traditional in the Forest. The food has a good reputation and dogs are allowed anywhere in the bar, restaurant and large garden.
