We are very lucky to have so many dog friendly pubs in London where we can enjoy drinking and dining with our humans but on a nice sunny day there is nothing better than spending an hour or two in a pub garden. Here are a few favourite London pub gardens you will often find me hanging out with Archie.
The Ram in Kingston
Starting with the one closest to home, The Ram in Kingston is a fabulous town centre pub with a large riverside garden. While the humans enjoy their lunch and cocktails, we doggies get our own water and some tasty biscuits from the very friendly staff. A place that serves us before the humans always gets a paws up!
Kingston riverside is a great place for people and dog watching and if you go on a summer evening you get to watch the sun set over the Thames. Just watch those humans don’t have too many cocktails!!

After a walk in Richmond Park, we like to head down Richmond Hill to The Marlborough. From the front you may think this is a small pub but once inside you will discover a spacious bar with an even bigger garden. In fact, the garden is HUGE!
The garden is part paved, part astroturf with some covered areas and heaters but the best part is the doggie station where we can help ourselves to a bowl, water and treats. It’s like an all you can eat buffet for dogs!

The Old Bull and Bush
The Old Bull and Bush is right next to Hampstead Heath where you can work up a hunger before heading to the pub for lunch. This pub has been around since 1721 and even has a song about it!
The garden is all paved with most tables covered and apart from the excellent food for the humans, what we love most about this pub is its history. It has been around since 1721 and in the 1800’s became a popular day trip destination for Cockneys, one of whom wrote a song about it.
Just imagine how many doggies have had a great time “Down at The Old Bull and Bush…”

The Windmill in Clapham
The Windmill in Clapham has its own resident Four Legged Foodie, a Bernese Mountain Dog called Max who is thankfully more than happy to share his pub with us!
The garden here has lots to explore with an outdoor bar, a burger shack and a fully decked out garden shed. There’s even full-size statue of a cow! Afterwards you can take your humans for a stroll on Clapham Common but don’t forget to get your photo taken with Max before you leave!

No.197 Chiswick Fire Station
Put on your best bow tie for this one as it’s a posh pub! No.197 Chiswick Fire Station is what the humans call a bar and it’s one of a group of 8 across London, all of which are super dog friendly.
The garden here is a very pretty courtyard with lots of plants and flowers and just as stylish as the interior. This is one of our human’s favourite places for brunch. I just have to be kept away from the plants as I like to try and eat them!

Richard The First
Greenwich Park is a stunning London park with some of the best views of the city you will find. After a few hours of being told to pose for photos, you will deserve a treat so you will be glad to know Richard The First pub is just across the road.
There are a few tables at the front of the pub and also a colourful patio garden at the rear where most tables are covered – this is apparently important for the humans who don’t like the rain!

Remember friends, always carry fresh water for your doggy companion when out and about and find some shade if the sun is shining!
