Dog Friendly Bars And Pubs In Manchester

We are a city obsessed with our canine friends. But, when plenty of us want to enjoy the great hospitality scene here too, surely our pooches should be able to join the fun? Luckily, there are lots of dog-friendly places in Manchester, from cool cocktail lounges through to classic boozers fronting great beer gardens.

Golden Lion

Looking for a winning sports bar in Manchester? Check out The Golden Lion. This family and dog-friendly pub has got it all, from live sports to award-winning beers, funky decor and delicious food. For the perfect weekday treat, come down to cosy up with a drink or chow down in the open-space dining area with your pooch.

Horse and Jockey

Horse and Jockey is a family-friendly and dog-friendly pub with a rich history that has stood tall for over 500 years. With a fantastic selection of ales, craft beers, wines, and spirits (courtesy of their very own in-house Bootleg microbrewery), you'll be spoiled for choice at the bar. And if you're looking for something fun to do, keep an eye out for farmer's markets, craft fairs, and other events happening at this historic boozer.

Slug and Lettuce Spinningfields

Whether you're in Spinningfields, Albert Square, Deansgate, Didsbury or Picadilly, there's a Slug and Lettuce for you - and your dog. They've got a spacious outdoor terrace for your pooch to run around on, as well as pretty interiors filled with blossom trees, colourful furniture and quirky neon signs. Not only are they slinging out two-for-one cocktails all day, everyday here, but you can also tuck into tasty plates of katsu curry, haloumi bao buns, breaded chicken burgers and much more on their extensive menu.

Albert's Schloss - Manchester

A small dog-friendly Bavarian bier palace in the heart of Spinningfields? Sign us up. This city centre bar is a proper dog-friendly spot, fronting staff that are sure to make a fuss over the both of you. Humans can enjoy steins of beer, classic German grub or live entertainment, with designated seats available for you and your doggo. With fresh baked goods, yummy food, and an impressive selection of drinks, including the freshest Pilsner in town, Albert's Schloss is the perfect place to indulge with your pooch in arm. And that's not all: You both can enjoy seven days of fantastical showtime performances until 7 pm.

The Wharf

A prime spot for petting puppies, thanks to being right on Bridgewater Canal, The Wharf is an expert place to escape the hustle and bustle of Manchester's main streets. There's wonderfully delicious food, tonnes of water and shelter for warmer days.
