15 of the Best Dog Friendly Restaurants in London

Pooch-perfect eateries


The days of struggling to find a delicious meal whilst your four-legged friend is in tow are finally behind you. These are the 15 very best restaurants in London, where the staff will be just as excited to see you as they are to see your fluffy companion.




Head to Bellanger, the traditional French brasserie in the heart of Islington, with your pooch in tow. Whilst you’re enjoying the fine food or a pot of fresh coffee, your furry friend can munch on Bellanger’s own dog biscuits and wag tails with the regulars!

Smith & Whistle

Dog Burgers

The first Dogtail menu in London has recently been launched so you can now enjoy a few tipples alongside your four-legged friend and they won’t feel left out. Treat your dog to a G&T Ginger Tails which is a mix of fresh ginger and tonic, or for more sophisticated canines, a Bubbly Bow Wow which is a dog-friendly Prosecco mixed with liquidised blueberries. For barking mad weekends, jump on a train to Picadilly. This National Burger Day (23 August), Mayfair bar Smith & Whistle is ensuring its canine patrons don’t miss out, by adding The Quarter Hounder to its menu – a special burger just for dogs! The Quarter Hounder has been created in collaboration with dog nutritionist Peter Jackson to ensure it is both tasty and healthy for man’s best friend. The sweet potato bun is filled with chicken breast, kale and tomato, with the optional addition of cheese. The new dish will be available on the terrace and in the main bar from Tuesday, 23 August for one week only, and will be offered to dogs completely free of charge when ordered with a human burger. 


Egerton House Hotel

Spaniel Life

Honestly, who wouldn’t want to go for Afternoon Tea with their dog? The Egerton offers a unique afternoon tea experience in their Drawing Room as pooches can munch on treats such as homemade dog biscuits, chicken and beef meatloaf and to finish, dog ice cream. They even get a special chew toy to take home! We bet their tails will be wagging all the way through this unique experience… 

Mews of Mayfair

Set in the heart of Mayfair, tucked away in a historic courtyard the Mews offers four floors of sophisticated style with food to match, timeless classics are reinvigorated and new additions keep the menu and atmosphere fresh. Whether you’re nursing an after work cocktail or enjoying a dinner with friends, you and your pet will appear as refined as you feel.

If you ever want to feel like you’re on holiday in Spain or Italy, without all the hassle of actually having to go on holiday with your pet then this is the place for you. With over 25 wines, by the glass, Vinoteca specially curates and pairs dishes using only the freshest and in season vegetables. You can devote you’re evening to sipping wine and imagining you’re looking out over the Riviera with your companion firmly by your side.

Afternoon Tea at the Milestone Hotel

What more could you want than afternoon tea by the fire with your favourite friend? That is exactly what the Milestone Hotel is offering, along with every pastry from macaroons to tartlets, a multitude of finger sandwiches and a constant refreshment of your coffee or tea of choice. Whilst you’re indulging yourself in every one of these delicacies, the Head Concierge Jose Pauco and his team will be doing all that they can to make sure your dog is enjoying themselves just as much no doubt with a treat or two. 

Ben’s Canteen

With the same easy atmosphere as a pub, Ben’s Canteen is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy a burger and a shake, or to indulge over the weekend with their mouth-watering, reviving brunch. If you’re craving melted cheese, carbohydrates and anything to make you skip the gym, this is it. Your pup will be just as at ease as you are, although I can’t guarantee the puppy dog eyes will go away anytime soon for not offering them a bite.

Chucs Serpentine


Chucs Serpentine is offering an amazing new dog menu whereby guests can now treat their pooch to a snack after long strolls around Hyde Park. Owners can choose from a selection of treats, wet food and dry food from luxury pet food brand . To coincide with the launch of their dog menu, Chucs Serpentine has also launched a delicious takeaway menu (for the humans). Visitors can now purchase tasty takeaway delights, such as sourdough sandwiches and toasties, which they can grab and enjoy in and around the iconic park. 

Gaucho, Hampstead

There really isn’t anything much better than a perfectly cooked steak – and we’re sure your four-legged friend would agree, which is exactly the idea that Gaucho had when they brought about their Doggy Sunday events. The first Sunday of every month Gaucho plays host to a number of dogs and their equally enthusiastic humans. Each month there is a new theme to dive into, where the pets’ owners are treated to a three course meal, with Argentinian steaks of course, as well as the animals receiving a personalised bowl to devour their specially made meal in along with copious amounts of treats, all to go home with a lovely gift box filled with more snacks for your furry friend later. In addition to this, as if there wasn’t enough incentive already, for every dog £5 will be donated to the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. 

Outsider Tart

The days of feeling bad for eating a slice of cake whilst your dog watches from their bowl filled with the same food, as always, are over. The Outsider Tart provides everything from sweet pies to brownies, which will all make you stop and stare, however, this is bound to be a guilt-free trip for dog-lovers everywhere as your faithful companion can have their fill at the shops own Barkery. With a variety of canine-tailored, homemade treats it will be a ttoss-upwho leaves the bakery happier, it’s going to be a close call.

Colbert, Chelsea

In the centre of Sloane Square, this French-inspired restaurant is the convergence point of Chelsea, Knightsbridge and Belgravia creating a hub of activity seven days a week. The up-scale cuisine will have you staying for a few hours, but the people watching will keep you there for a good while longer. At least you’ll have your trusty companion to keep you company.

The Jam Tree

Loft 2 1

When you’re pining for a delectable cocktail and somewhere comfortable to sit, its no doubt The Jam Tree calling you home. With music into the early hours and a Bottomless Brunch on the weekends you’re always bound to have a good time, especially during the summer when you can tuck into a free hog roast on a Thursday out in the garden. Without meaning to, somehow, you’ll inevitably find yourself inside The Jam Tree more often than not.

Maggie Jones’

This intimate restaurant has been a favourite for over forty years with the locals, with its friendly charm you can see why. Fresh and dried flowers hang from the ceiling and occupy the tables, along with well-used candles in champagne bottles making the whole place exude the type of romance you only see in films. Date night just became a whole lot more swoon-worthy and a whole lot easier to bring your furry friend to. 


Indulge in some traditional Spanish cuisine at Pizarro alongside your puppy pal. Owners and their pets can sit on the window counter seats so your dog can watch passers-by to entertain themselves, they may even see a fellow furry friend wandering the streets of London. It’s a dog’s life…

National Theatre’s Green Room

Sundays are for one thing: Bottomless Brunch. But what is bottomless brunch without your furry friend? Bring your favourite companion along as you whet your whistle with bottomless Prosecco or Bloody Marys before feasting on bacon mac and cheese fritters, crushed avocado with a poached egg on sourdough, jerk chicken pot pie and The Green Room’s very own signature burger. The perfect place to dine in the summer months, The Green Room’s sustainable garden was designed and is being maintained by the Bankside Open Spaces Trust. The urban oasis awaits… (as do the bottomless drinks) Available Sundays 11:30am-4pm,
