Dog Friendly Pubs in Fiveways and the surrounding area

Posted on


Have you ever been thrown out or refused entry to a pub or cafe because of your baby? No! Of course not, but this does happen again and again when your beloved little one is a dog! Not only does it make you feel awkward (and ashamed?) but it certainly makes me feel uncomfortable about approaching other establishments to see if dogs are permitted.

Never fear! If you are planning on supporting your local hostelry, I have done the leg work for you! I called each of the pubs and asked the following questions.

  1. Are you a dog friendly pub?
  2. What rules do you have in place?
  3. Do you have a water bowl and treats for dogs available?


  1. How would you describe yourself in one sentence?


So, sit back and check out the following dog friendly establishments around the Fiveways area.

Funnily enough, during the course of my research is turned out that ALL the pubs in our small corner of Brighton are dog friendly!! That is good news!

Unfortunately, I was unable to get through to the The Preston Brewery Tap & The Jolly Brewer when I was doing my research – so if you know their policy on paws… please let us know!
