There are also many country pubs in nearby villages which welcome dogs. Waddington has three pubs which are dog friendly.

Bashall Barn near Clitheroe is  also a pet friendly shopping and eating destination.   Basically I need to write a whole second post about our very dog-friendly Ribble Valley !

  1. Great idea. I’m amazed so many places are dog friendly 🙂 will have to compile my own local list. I know that Anthropologie in Bath is dog friendly as they have a dog water bowl by the door, which never ceases to amaze me as its full of gorgeous super expensive stuff. They even had an artist painting doggie portraits for free for charity when they first opened.
    My favourite place to take the dogs is the Watch House Cafe at West Bay, Dorset, if you’re ever down south 😉

    1. You will have to compile a list. Always handy to know if you have your lovely dogs with you. 🙂 I have been to a wedding in West Bay a few years ago. Then I was so surprised to see that it became the location of Broadchurch!

  2. Thank you so much for the info- visited Clitheroe with our dog last weekend and went to escape and bowland beer hall which were both excellent! Lovely people of Clitheroe were very friendly towards us and our doggy 🙂
