You don’t need to worry about leaving the most important member of the family at home – London is filled with dog-friendly destinations. With so many of us adding a four-legged friend into the fold (lockdown puppy, anyone?) the city has adapted with many establishments ready to welcome you and your dog.
While guide dogs are invited everywhere on Regent Street, use our guide to plan a day out with a chosen canine companion.
Dog friendly restaurants
Experience Parisian café culture at Brasserie Zedel's ground floor café. Take a table on the terrace and let your pet enjoy watching the world go by or settle down inside with a glass of wine and something from the bistro menu.
For when your furry friend is better at resisting a good steak than you are… Dogs are welcome to join guests at Gaucho from 12-6pm every day in its main area. Will you have enough restraint to request a doggy bag?
Heddon Street Kitchen
Whether you're looking for a shopping pit-stop, or spot for a leisurely meal with loved ones, Heddon Street's restaurants should be high on your list. Gordon Ramsay's Heddon Street Kitchen terrace is one of our go-to spots for dining with small dogs in central London.
Or why not let your four-legged friend bask in the sunshine on Heddon Yokocho’s outdoor terrace as you tuck into regional Japanese ramen and sides?
A good pub in central London can be hard to find. Look no further than 18th century pub, The George on Great Portland Street.
