Finding a dog-friendly place to eat and drink can sometimes be a challenge, so we have built this section from my research with the dog in tow. This includes Gloucestershire restaurants, pubs, cafes and other eateries. Some establishments allow pets inside others just in outdoor areas and finally some embrace the concept and have treats and water bowls for dogs.

There are many places to visit for fun that you can take your four-legged friends.
Dean Forest Railway
Taking your 4-legged friend with you to Dean Forest Railway is a great day out. You can ride on a steam train through the local countryside, enjoy afternoon tea while on the move, or go for walkies in the stunning countryside. About Dean Forest Railway…
Restaurants, Cafes & Pubs Cotswolds
In the Cotswolds between Stroud and Cirencester, Jolly Nice is a farm shop and cafe. They serve a variety of local foods in the shop, from meats to vegetables. The cafe serves some very nice options, all made with locally sourced produce to eat inside one of their domes or outside on a picnic table. About Jolly Nice…
The Old Lodge Minchinhampton
The Old Lodge is a pub and restaurant on Minchinhampton Common, an ideal place for sustenance after a walk. The pub has some stunning views of the local Cotswold hills and Stroud Valleys. The bar has a relaxed vibe with comfy indoor seating or a beer-garden to sit in on a warm day. Their restaurant serves a menu that is based on locally sourced food cooked to a high standard. The pub is popular with dog walkers, hikers and those that play gold locally.
A Traditional British tearoom on the square, in Stow on the Wold in the Cotswold town. Lucy’s serves cream teas, cakes, hot food and drinks. Dogs are welcome to accompany well-behaved owners while they eat or drink. More info…
Stables Cafe Saul Junction
For a flat canal walk with pooch in tow, Saul Junction and the surrounding canals are great. The added advantage is the Stables Cafe that has seating outside and serves great food. They are popular with dog-walkers and the area is pretty special.
The Old Fleece
Near to Woodchester is The Old Fleece, a nice place to dine out for an evening meal. The Old Fleece is a 250-year-old former coaching inn and looks rather impressive and historical. The fleece is perfect for outdoor eating on their terrace or more formal sit down meal inside the nicely decorated bar or dining area.
The Old Fleece serves food daily until 10 pm, they are even pet-friendly so you can bring Fido along. Their menu is pretty special and includes delights such as garlic & rosemary pork chop, Sunday roasts, burgers, vegetarian katsu curry and more.
