Fancy a dog-friendly holiday to the North York Moors but wondering where you will be able to take your doggie? We’ve put together a selection of some top dog-friendly pubs in the North York Moors where your four-legged friend will be made more than welcome.
Eight dog-friendly pubs in the North York Moors
1. The Grapes at Slingsby
This dog-friendly pub dates back to Georgian times and has a lovely village location and lots of original features. Dogs will be made very welcome in the bar and snug and you’ll find live music pub quizzes and a brand new pizza oven.
2. The Lion Inn at Blakey Ridge
It’s hard to beat the stunning views from the 16th century Lion Inn at Blakey Ridge. It’s got a fabulously elevated position at the highest point of the North York Moors and we love the roaring open fires in this very dog-friendly Yorkshire pub.
3. The Crown Inn at Hutton-le-Hole
Hutton-le-Hole is a great choice for doggies. Take them round the dog-friendly Ryedale Folk Museum, go for a riverside walk in this pretty North York Moors village then round it off with a pint at the traditional Crown Inn Country Pub.
4. The White Swan Inn, Pickering
A traditional 16th century coaching inn, this is a great choice for dog-friendly dining in Pickering. Dogs are made more than welcome in the bar and there are water bowls available so they can have a drink of their own.
5. The Plough Inn, Sleights
This dog-friendly pub has an enviable position in the Esk Valley. You can look out over the North York Moors (and maybe spot a steam train) while enjoying a drink with your doggie at your side. Friendly owners make everyone welcome and it’s just a couple of miles walk from Whitby.
6. The Horseshoe Inn, Levisham
You’ll find lots of locally-sourced ingredients and seasonal menus at this charming dog-friendly country pub in the pretty North York Moors village of Levisham. A sister pub, The Fox & Rabbit is just a few miles away in the equally lovely village of Lockton.
7. The Downe Arms, Wykenham
This traditional Yorkshire dog-friendly pub is on the cusp of the North York Moors National Park and just a few miles from the coast. Food choices range from sandwiches to locally reared Yorkshire steak.
8. The Durham Ox, Crayke
You’ll find lots of fresh local ingredients and special seasonal dishes at this renowned Yorkshire gastropub in the pretty (and historic) village of Crayke. Dogs are welcomed so it’s a great choice to spot for a bite to eat in this scenic part of Yorkshire.
