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 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 and Hindelinis ( Gisburn), Millie’s ( Hurst green), Country Kitchen ( Waddington), Puddleducks (Dunsop Bridge) 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 Swan and dog friendly cafes Benedict’s and Taste Buds. 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 !
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. 🙂 Last updated September 2017. As ever if you are unsure, always ask establishments first, before you take your dog in. 🙂
