5 dog friendly pubs in Northumberland

Safe to say, Northumberland is extremely dog friendly, which is why all our cottages are dog friendly too, with and arrival pack of dog biscuits and use of a dog bowls and towel for the duration of your stay.

With miles and miles of beaches to play on and log burners to come back and curl up next to, and what’s more, taking your four-legged friend on holiday with you is much cheaper and way more fun than leaving them at kennels!

Only this week Lottie Gross, the author of Dog Days Out; 365 things to do with your dog in UK and Ireland has described Bamburgh beach as one of the country’s top 10 beaches for adventures with your dog.

Some of our personal dog favourite stretches of coastline are Beadnell Beach and Embleton Beach!

But let’s get to the important things, you often ask us, which pubs are dog friendly!

Well, the short answer is, most of them! Here are our top 5!

1. The Ship Inn, Low Newton

Perfect for sitting inside or out with your dog. Cosy inside where you’ll often find dogs lolling under tables while you enjoy a pint of their onsite brewed beer! Or outside on the green in the white square overlooking the sea.

2. Bamburgh Castle Inn, Seahouses.

A great larger than average, all round pub with plenty of dog friendly areas and a large outside beer terrace overlooking the harbour. Dogs are always welcome here, there are dog friendly and none dog friendly areas, just ask a member of staff if you’re not sure.

3. The Black Swan Inn, Seahouses.

A delicious gastro pub serving fabulous food, whilst their main dining room isn’t dog friendly, you can enjoy the same menu sat in the bar area with a cosy fire place.

4. The Jolly Fisherman

World famous gastro pub with a fabulous view nestled in the historic fishing village of Craster. The perfect pit stop along the coastal path (it goes right through the beer garden!)

Dogs are welcome in the bar area here and in the beer garden, we recommend booking in advance.


5. The Red Lion, Alnmouth

Known for its wood fired pizza’s this pub doesn’t serve food every day, but dogs are welcome in the large sheltered beer garden and the cosy bar area.
