There are also many country pubs in nearby villages which welcome dogs. Waddington has three pubs which are dog friendly. The Aspinall arms in Mitton, The Inn at Whitewell, The Hark to Bounty at Slaidburn, The Red Pump at Bashall Eaves and the Parkers Arms in Newton in Bowland love dogs too.Pooches are welcome at the Spread Eagle in Sawley ( they even have a Dogs Dish menu , especially for four-legged visitors) and Hindelinis ( Gisburn), Millie’s ( Hurst green), Potters Barn ( Ribchester), Country Kitchen( Waddington), Ebbeneezers ( Billington) , Puddleducks (Dunsop Bridge), the tea room at Tithe Barn, Browsholme Hall and Greendale ( on the road to Downham) are all pet friendly cafes. Dogs go free on the train so a trip to the nearby village of Whalley is a must with your dog, where there are more dog friendly pubs including Brady’s Bar , The Dog and Jack’s ,as well as a dog friendly cafe called Taste Buds. Bashall Barn and Melt at Backridge Farm near Clitheroe are also pet friendly shopping and eating destination. You can even treat your pooch to Afternoon Tea at Sandwitches cafe in Sabden ! Basically I need to write a whole second post about our very dog-friendly Ribble Valley !
Here are a few of my blog posts about dog friendly things to do in the area. 🙂
I will try and keep this post updated with any other pet friendly places. :). As ever if you are unsure, always ask establishments first, before you take your dog in. 🙂
