The best dog friendly restaurants in London

It's the year of the dog, so what better way is there to spoil your pooch in London town?

Life can be a real pooch sometimes - especially if you're a dog who just wants to go and eat at a swanky London restaurant with your human.

To make all of your puppy foodie dreams finally come true, our doggy rePAWters Marcel, Suki and George have picked the best spots for walkies and eaties with your four legged pals.

From the buzzing streets of central London all the way to the chic and charming cobbled lanes of Islington, here's where you and your pup can wine and dine together.

Pizarro Restaurant

Everything the dogs need to know:

Dogs of all shapes and sizes are warmly welcomed at this Bermondsey Street haunt, where they will be given their own bowl of water on arrival. Doggies dine at the window counter seats to people watch a furry flurry of dogs stroll by on what must be one of the most dog-friendly streets south of the river.

Everything the humans need to know:

Set on the vibrant Bermondsey Street, Pizarro offers delicious, creative and exquisite Spanish food with all the home comforts. The very pretty, light and airy restaurant serves a selection of smaller dishes, as well as generous mains, all of which can be shared and devoured at the table tapas-style or as the main event. We recommend sharing so that you can sample as much of the delicious and comprehensive menu as possible. If you can't decide what to eat, the friendly staff are on hand to advise diners on how many plates they should order. Highlights include the meatballs and cuttlefish served in squid ink, and the Castilian leg of suckling lamb (which George may have sneakily sampled).

Egerton House Hotel - Knightsbridge

Suki at the Egerton House Hotel

Everything the dogs need to know:

Afternoon tea is a classic British tradition - and at The Egerton House Hotel, doggies are more than welcome. Upon arrival, dogs are greeted with a warm reception and have a tasty menu specially designed for them. Doggy Afternoon Tea is served in the same style as a traditional high tea and has three courses - meatloaf, biscuits and ice-cream to finish.

Everything the humans need to know:

The Egerton House Hotel is a short walk from Harrods and all the delights west London has to offer. It really is the perfect place for treating that special someone… even if that special someone has four legs rather than two! The afternoon tea was commended by the Afternoon Tea Awards 2017, and is served in the elegant drawing room that feels like you’re having tea on the set of Downton Abbey. The food caters for everyone (not just dogs), with afternoon tea for vegetarians, vegans and those with a gluten intolerance.

J. Sheekey Atlantic Bar Winter Terrace

Everything the dogs need to know:

Well-mannered dogs agreeing to the doggy code of conduct are welcome on the terrace and well cared for. Bowl of fresh water, pats and chat from the staff included.

Everything the humans need to know:

A cosy, romantic al-fresco haven in the heart of London's West End theatre district, complete with snug blankets, outdoor heaters and a crackling log fire. Responsibly caught and sustainable seafood is served from midday until late, alongside an exquisite list of coastal wines and cocktails. Reasonably priced seasonal favourites to the Atlantic Bar menu (also available on request) offers an array of Skeekey classics, including a shrimp & scallop burger, seared octopus and fish stew with rouille.

M Bar & Grill, Victoria Street

Everything the dogs need to know:

If you’re looking for a restaurant that not only allows dogs, but also provides them with their own brunch menu, then M Victoria Street is the place for you. For a £5 donation to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, your dog will be offered a choice of 'Bacon & Peanut Butter Cookies' or 'Dried Chicken Livers'. And if you’re lucky, your four-legged friend might even get to meet resident hound Hudson, the labradoodle.

Everything the humans need to know:

A subterranean restaurant entered via a beautifully presented wine shop on Victoria Street - M Grill specialises in steaks from across the globe, including some rather incredible Blackmore Waygu Grade 9++ beef. As the very 'grammable entrance to the restaurant suggests, wine plays an integral role at M Victoria Street. With many bottles exclusive to M Restaurants, wine lovers won’t be disappointed by the formidable selection on offer. In addition to all the booze, M also offers a varied and delicious weekend brunch menu where you can enjoy bottomless Bellinis as your canine companion tucks into their own meal.
