Best dog-friendly pubs in North London 2023

Want to support your local pub, but want to enjoy it with your dog by your side?

 Don’t worry. PitPat is here to help! 

We’ve pulled together the best dog-friendly pubs in North London so you don’t have to. The only thing you need to do is decide which one you want to try first! 

The Albion

Found off the central tracks of Islington, The Albion can tailor to your every need. This Georgian-styled public house is a real thing of beauty. Serving high-quality pub grub, cocktails, craft beer and their very own cask ale. 

The cherry on top is their garden space which has plenty of plants and trees. You and your pup will definitely want to venture out here. 

The Arnos Arms

If you fancy a weekend brunch in a traditional pub environment, this is the place to go. There’s a newly furnished outdoor seating area (with cover), so you won’t get caught in the rain, and there’s plenty of space here for you and your pooch to safely enjoy your time out.

Edinboro Castle

We all know that when in London, Camden Town is a place you have to see. Its quirky uniqueness sets it apart from traditional London. 

You may find yourselves getting so caught up with everything Camden has to offer that you and your furry friend’s legs start to tire. Enter The Edinboro Castle. Only a few minutes walk from the famous Camden Market, this hidden gem is worth finding for all you dog owners.

The staff love meeting new dogs and will likely ask to take pictures for their social media page, with an incentive of a treat for your dog of course.  

The Flask

This traditional public house is riddled with history going back to the 1660s and is said to be where Dick Turpin used to enjoy a drink or two. The fact it was a great place to hide from the law was, of course, just a happy coincidence.

With beautiful garden scenery, it’s just a stone’s throw away from the stunning Waterlow Park, which makes The Flask perfect for a great family and pup day out.

The Griffin

The Griffin is perfect for you sports lovers. With three different options of outdoor seating and six TV screens to choose from, there’s plenty of space for everyone to feel comfortable and safe. They also drift away from traditional London pubs in the form of their own wood-fired pizza oven; doesn’t that sound delicious? So after you’ve eaten your weight in pizza, make sure you check out Whetstone Stray, where you can enjoy a post-feast walk with your pup along Dollis Brook. 


This Irish establishment wasn’t chosen because of its dog-inspired logo (although it may have tipped the scales a little bit), but for its versatile pub bar culture. Found in the heart of Islington, this place has something for all people and dogs. It puts its own twist on brunches and traditional pub food, and with plenty of dog bowls and treats on hand, it’s one you really don’t want to miss.

Who knew that North London had so many places for you to relax with your dog? Before you rush off to try them all, don’t forget to grab a PitPat. With an exercise goal tailored to your dog, it’s the perfect way to make sure your dog’s paws are not going too far on your adventures.
