We live in a country where we would rather lie in total discomfort than remove and therefore wake up the sleeping animal on top of us. As a nation of pet lovers, we Brits are crazy about pets. The Statistics show that 46% of UK households have a pet of some kind. As the most popular pet is the dog, we’ve devised a list of our favourite dog friendly pubs in Brighton, so that you’ll never have to be away from your furry best friend. If you are ‘more of a cat person’, we suggest that you convert to Team Dog.
This café is at the Marina and has a great deal of space. You can enjoy refreshments from Artisan, browse in their gift shop, enjoy art at the gallery and get something printed at the studio. As such, Laughing Dog is multi-purpose and there is something for everyone.
This cosy little pub is in North Laine. Renowned for its good quality food, The Basketmakers Arms uses locally sourced organic food with a focus on vegetarians. This pub has a very homely feel and without a doubt will welcome you and your pup.
Voted ‘Brighton’s Best Pub’ by the Argus, The Sidewinder is a popular pub situated in Kemptown. The Sidewinder is also well known for its authentic, street-style Mexican kitchen. If you love a bit of flavour, this is the place for you. The pub is also home to two beer gardens making it the ideal place for you and a playful pooch.
The Chimney house is a family friendly pub which can be found in Seven Dials. Known for its good quality pub grub but also a variety of other foods, including delicious cakes, The Chimney House is the perfect place to pop in whatever the occasion. They provide bowls for your captivating canine so make sure you bring some doggy food with you.
Located just off Hove seafront, this is the perfect venue for those of you who have just taken their lovable four legged friend for a walk along the beach. As a friendly pub, The Better Half offers a tasty selection of foods in a gastro-style menu. They also offer a good selection of beers and wines, only for human consumption though!
Finally, for you dog lovers, the Chubby Chops Café is Brighton’s first dog café, catering exclusively for dog lovers and their pets. Not content with serving food just to the owners, Chubby Chops also serves food for hungry dogs. When visiting Chubby Chops expect to see a lot of dogs, playing with toys, roaming around and sleeping in their beds. They even offer homemade snacks edible for both humans and dogs!
