Dog-Friendly Pubs in the Yorkshire Dales

9 June 2021

There truly is nothing better than heading down to the pub with your friends and family after a long day of hiking or exploring the countryside in the Yorkshire Dales. With the UK holiday destined to be another popular choice this year with travel restrictions still in place, there has never been a better time to see what our beautiful country has to offer.

The Yorkshire Dales is the perfect place to take your dog for a walk, and this year you may opt to take your furry friend with you on holiday. But where can you go for a sit-down meal and a drink with your pooch in tow? Here are some great pubs in the Yorkshire Dales that accommodate dogs.

The Kings Arms, Askrigg

In the village of Askrigg, you may recognise the Kings Arms from the TV series All Creatures Great & Small. Built in the 18th century, the building was initially owned by hose trainer John Pratt, and the main bar ceiling still has the remaining hooks where reins and saddles used to hang.

With a large open fire, a flagstone floor and oak panelling, this beautiful pub serves traditional pub food and a selection of local beers. Your dog is more than welcome, so make it your pit stop after a walk around Aysgarth Falls.

The Red Lion, Burnsall

The main bar of the Red Lion incorporates the original 16th century structure, complete with horse trough which once stood outside the front door. It is a popular meeting spot for villagers and tourists alike, serving a wide selection of real ales and fine wines alongside their brasserie menu. With dog bowls and treats available, your pup will fit right in while you enjoy a relaxing pint.

The Craven Arms, Giggleswick

The family-friendly pub is stocked full of real ales, great food and sits on the outskirts of the village of Giggleswick, near the picturesque market town of Settle. The Craven Arms is the ideal base for exploring both the Yorkshire Dales and The Forest of Bowland, a popular spot for those taking up the Three Peaks Challenge.

With a specialist restaurant providing locally sourced food and a choice of craft beers from local breweries, your dog is more than welcome to join you.

The Sun Inn, Dent

In the cobbled streets of Dent, you can find the traditional pub, The Sun Inn. Their no-nonsense bar will suit every appetite, with hearty soups and sandwiches to ale pie. At the bar, you can enjoy a range of real ales hand-pulled from the cask, brewed just over the fell at Kirby Lonsdale brewery. Settle in with your furry friend, play darts or enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.

The Ship Inn, Sewerby

On the East Yorkshire coastline, The Ship Inn overlooks Flamborough Head and Bridlington Bay. This traditional pub is known for its winning cask ales and pub grub and being very dog friendly. There is plenty of space for your pooch to roam in the spacious beer garden, and they can even enjoy a bite to eat from their very own menu, which includes doggie lollies and Cumberland sausages.

In the quaint village of Arncliffe, The Falcon Inn was the very first Woolpack in Emmerdale (then Emmerdale Farm) before filming was moved in 1975. The pub retains much of its old charm, with ale being served from a jug alongside the more modern pumps. It is an excellent base for exploring the Dale attractions, such as the villages of Grassington and Kettlewell.

The Carpenter Arms, Felixkirk

With a cosy bar area and dog-friendly garden rooms, The Carpenter Arms is an excellent spot for a pint and great food. They work with Yorkshire-based suppliers to ensure their menu is full of seasonal delights using only the freshest ingredients, most grown in their own kitchen garden. At the bar, you can find an extensive drinks menu with fine wines, champagne and the very best local ales. It’s the ideal place for you and your family and friends to meet, kick back and relax in a hospitable atmosphere.
