Dog Friendly Pubs in Suffolk

Suffolk has a wide range of Dog Friendly Pubs dotted all over the county & while some request that you keep your pets in the garden or terrace area, many allow pets inside the pub as well. Here's a selection of pubs across Suffolk which allow pets either in the pub or in the garden.

Red Lion Kirtling Pub

Dog & child friendly, the Kirtling Red Lion is a traditional village pub in a stunning location in the heart of the picturesque village of Kirtling, near Newmarket. You'll receive a warm welcome here, as well as fantastic home cooked food, so if you're in the area with your hound be sure to drop in.

Middleton Bell

The Middleton Bell is a great option for locally sourced, home cooked food. There's a friendly bar area for pub meals which is dog friendly, as well as a restaurant for lunch and evening meals (no dogs allowed). Complete with water bowl by the open fire and doggy treats behind the bar, both you and your dog will receive a warm welcome in this village pub!

Dog friendly pubs and restaurants in Suffolk


The King's Head, Laxfield, is an unusual yet very sociable pub that welcomes dogs. As well as being a pretty, thatched pub in the centre of the Village, it is one of the few pubs in the UK without a bar so don't pass by without stopping in for a pint.



The Star Inn, Wenhaston, is a warm and friendly local village inn with a large garden, great food & drink and on-site camping by prior arrangement. Well behaved dogs are allowed and will be welcomed by the 2 dogs behind the bar!

The Bildeston Crown is a top rated restaurant with rooms that allows well behaved dogs in the pub area. The Cock Inn in Polstead is also a good place for pets, with dogs allowed in the pub and beer garden.

Pubs to take dogs Suffolk


Near the Coast the Westleton Crown and The Ship Inn, Dunwichare both great options for dog lovers - not only is there a water bowl in the bar and some treats behind the bar, but both also allow dogs in their bedrooms too - so make a weekend of it! Mutley will love running along the beach at Dunwich any time of the year - find out more about

Dog Friendly Pubs


Further down the Coast at Snape Maltings The Plough and Sail is a great place to stop for a bite to eat before one of Aldeburgh Music's concert as dogs are allowed in the bar area. This is a large, friendly pub run by 2 brothers, and you may be inclined to skip the concert and order another course as their food is superb.

With so many options to choose from, you're never far from a dog friendly pub in Suffolk. If you'd like more information on Dog Friendly places in Suffolk, see Dog Friendly Suffolk, or check out Dog Friendly Beaches in Suffolk.
