Figuring out where to stay with your dog while traveling abroad is one thing. Then there is finding places where you and your furry BFF can dine together.
For those planning to visit the United Kingdom with pup in tow, the dog food company Tails.com has made the latter task a little easier. It has “sniffed out” the best pubs for its “Ruff Guide to the UK’s Most Dog-Friendly Holidays.” The following eateries, all in England, feature menu items for canines that go way beyond what comes out of a store-bought can or bag.
The Farm Tavern, East Sussex
This pub serves up a special roast dinner, made just for dogs. These complimentary doggy dinners have meat, gravy and some vegetables. This quirky pub has plenty to offer including local ales and a roaring fire, perfect for drying off after a walk on the beach.
The Orange Tree, Norfork
Your canine friends are always welcome at The Orange Tree and they even have their own doggy menu to choose from. Delicacies include probiotic salmon, chicken or lamb, all served with garnish, pigs ears and gravy, doggie sausage rolls, and bone with Marrowin. And once they have devoured their feast, they can swirl it down with some water.
The Kings Head, Suffolk
It’s a dog’s dinner of a menu at The Kings Head pub! The mutts menu includes cow ears, pig ears, honey dried pig snout, knotted bone, doggy sausage and a ramekin of pedigree gravy bones. This classic pub has plenty to offer including beer, food and a warm welcome, the perfect spot after a long walk.
