Dog Friendly in Clitheroe. ^^

It’s raining cats and dogs and you’re out and about in Clitheroe with your four legged friend.Its not beer garden weather, so where can you and Rover ( or Hugo in my case!) shelter from the rain, sit down with a coffee, relax with a pint, or indeed indulge in a little reTail therapy?  Check out these places with your pooch…..after a run in the castle grounds of course!

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

Basically I need to write a whole second post about our very dog-friendly Ribble Valley !


If you fancy hiring a camper van and you are in the area Star Campers UK are a super and dog friendly VW Camper Van Hire local to Clitheroe. As modelled by French Bulldog Louis above.:)) You can read my post about when we hired a van with Hugo here. Kirkby Lonsdale in a camper van.

I will try and keep this post updated with any other pet friendly places. 🙂 Last updated December 2016.

  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 🙂
