Dog Friendly Pubs

Listed below are the names of pubs that we know of that do allow well behaved dogs on leads in with their owners, who will hopefully be just as well behaved, to enjoy a drink of real ale in good company. Many of the pubs listed have water bowls for the refreshment of four-legged visitors and even free doggy treats.
A reminder to those pubs that do not allow dogs: at the end of the dog's lead is someone who will buy a drink and hopefully come back again!

PUBlic Transport

The £1.00 Day Rover Ticket on the NCT buses is still available. This ticket covers your dog for all day travel for the £1.00 charge.

Trent Barton
Currently the cost for a dog travelling on any Trent Barton bus is a half-fare or equivalent of a child's fare. However, don't forget the offers available on Zig-Zag fares, particularly the Zig-Zag Play and Group fares.

Dogs can currently travel free on Premiere buses.

Dogs can currently travel free on the train.

Unfortunately, dogs cannot travel on any NET tram unless it is an assistance or guide dog.

Dog Walks

There are plenty of walks for you to do that can incorporate dog friendly pubs but a suggested level and fairly easy one is to follow the canal towpath between Nottingham and Beeston. This walk will encompass some fine dog-friendly real ale pubs. Start at the Navigation on Wilford Street, below the Castle and then walk up the canal until you come to Beeston.  About half way along you can come off the canal at Gregory Street, go down to Abbey Street and then left and first left onto Priory Street; here you will see The Boat at Dunkirk. Retrace your steps back onto the canal. 

Carry along on the canal and as you approach Beeston Lock you will see a bridge on the right hand side; cross over this bridge and walk down Canal Side  until you reach Trent Road on your right. Here turn right onto Trent Road and on the right hand side you will see The Boat and Horses Pub.  From there, if you wish you can visit both the Victoria and the Crown Inn, and if you are feeling energetic go on to the Hop Pole.  The walk is about 4 miles to the Boat and Horses.
