No Pet Owner should ever need to choose between their dog and their pub. Fortunately, in most major cities across Australia, you won’t need to. To guide you and your pooch on your bar-hopping adventures, we’ve prepared a list of Australia’s best dog-friendly pubs!
Tucked away from Paddington’s main drag of Oxford Street, The London is a dog lover’s haven. The courtyard is spacious enough for the largest of dogs, and the kitchen offers mid-week specials for human guests. As an added bonus, your dog can be allowed inside if the weather is too foul.
This charming venue has built its rep on its love of dogs (see greeting sign below). The winner of Time Out’s 2016 Pub of the Year Award, they also keep a Staffy named Billy on staff.
During summer, rooftop bars sell themselves – so what could possibly make them more appealing? The answer: dogs, of course! This chic venue hosts dogs and the humans who love them on their astroturfed roof. They also claimed Brisbane’s Best Bar Award for 2018, so they clearly know how to sling a good cocktail.
This salt-of-the-earth watering hole is a slight trek from Darwin’s centre. However, the journey is worth it for any Darwinian Dog Owner. The Berry Springs Tavern offers award-winning pub food, a range of drinks, and a welcoming atmosphere for pups. They also offer great dining options for families, so bring the kids!
This pub and bistro is renowned for its tap beers and epic pizzas. To dog lovers, though, it’s known for its canine-friendly outdoor areas. Bring your pooch and enjoy all three at once!
Want to know the best thing about the Little Bang Brewing Company? No, it’s not the friendly service. No, it’s not the crisp, fresh cornucopia of beers. It’s the fact that dogs are permitted in all public areas in the brewery. For Dog Owners who love beer, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better haunt.
Don’t let the unassuming name fool you: this place can kick it with the best of them. Whether you’re looking for finger foods, an a la carte dinner, or a boozy night out, The Tassie can provide. While most of its seating is based indoors, it does boast a courtyard to host you and your furry friend/s.
