With an abundance of beautiful walks and dog-friendly amenities, North Yorkshire is a certainly a dog-friendly holiday destination. We are equally enticed by the wide choice of excellent dog-friendly pubs to try out; where better to pop when you've built up a thirst from that lovely long walk. From the Moors to the Dales, our canine friends are well catered for in this county.

Every man and his dog has seen the stunning Yorkshire scenery, and paired with a Holiday at Home luxury cottage, it is certainly the place for a dog friendly holiday. Here are some of our favourite dog-friendly pubs in Yorkshire, to help you out...

In the Yorkshire Dales

Muker is a wonderful location for walking and prides itself on its scenery and traditional charm. The Farmers Arms in Muker is a lovely village pub nestled in Swaledale,  with good food and plenty of local ales. After a walk in the Dales, an open fire will warm you and your dog up.

Masham is an attractive market town and two great dog-friendly pubs include The White Bear which is attached to Theakston Brewery, and The Bay Horse which has two roaring fires. Both offer a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and like to source as much produce from local suppliers as possible. Photo credit @thewhitebearhotel

The Wheatsheaf Inn, Wensleydale is in a great location for exploring some of the Yorkshire Dales best attractions, with Asygarth Falls and Bolton Castle less than 2 miles away. Illustrious guests who have visited include Alf Wight (aka James Herriott) and Greta Garbo after entertaining troops at Catterick. Dogs are welcome in the bar.

In the North York Moors

The Golden Lion in Osmotherley offers a cosy welcoming atmosphere, with candlelit tables, old pew benches and white stone walls . This is a popular and pretty unspoilt village in the North York Moors National Park. Families and dogs are welcome at all times, and Paddock View cottage is just down the road…

The Durham Ox at Crayke is a 300-year old renowned Yorkshire gastropub with flagstone floors, oak panelling and roaring fires in winter. Dogs are welcome, and its location in the pretty village of Crayke, near Thirsk and York, makes it a great choice for a scenic bite to eat. Photo credit @thedurhamox, Instagram. 

The Owl at Hawnby prides itself on its fresh local ingredients, and seasonal menu. The bar is cosy with roaring fires and serving real ales. There are two dining areas, one of which is dog friendly. It’s a great walking location, plus they own two other great pubs in Roecliffe and Barningham.

And in between...

The Carpenters Arms at Felixkirk is an award-winning pub with a seasonal menu that is low food miles. We can recommend their great drinks menu and Yorkshire puddings! The bar is dog friendly. Photo credit thecarpentersarmsfelixkirk.com

The Fox Hole at Piercebridge is a great gastropub mixing traditional features and contemporary décor. The village is worth exploring, with its two ancient Roman sites. Dogs are allowed, and dog beers are available! 

The George and Dragon in Hudswell has won CAMRA National Pub of the Year. The village near Richmond sits just off the Coast to Coast walk, and serves pub classics and excellent ales. There is a large garden.

The Black Horse Inn at Kirkby Fleetham is a cosy inn and easy to access due to the nearby A1. The menu is wide, with great Friday fish and chips. Doggies are allowed in the bar.

At The Rose & Crown in Romaldkirk, there’s even a Dog Hall of Fame. This village is less well known, nestled amidst the stunning countryside where the Durham and Yorkshire Dales meet in spectacular rural landscapes.
