Charity Dog Walk

We’re so excited to be holding our second charity dog walk in aid of Stand Up To Cancer UK!
Our last walk raised over £500 and we had over 40 people and lots of doggos! We had such a great time and such a good reception, we’ve decided to run our second walk. We will be holding a raffle before the walk where prizes include An Ultimate Shack Experience, A Bottle of Harlot Sparkling Wine, A Tour and Tasting for 2 at Chapel Down and a personalised biscuit box from J&B’s Barkery. Raffle prices are £1 per strip – cash on the day.

Dog-Friendly Areas

Dog-Friendly Areas

All of our 11 pubs have dog friendly areas. Our main dog areas will be located in the bar areas. This means there’s lots of space for the dogs so as not to get trodden on or overwhelmed when it gets a little busier!

Dogs are more than welcome in all of our garden areas, we’ve got lots of shady spots for those warmer days.

Dogs are welcome with groups of 11 and under. Unfortunately our bedrooms are not dog-friendly.

Dog friendly pubs in kent and sussex

Paws Light

Our Paws Light doggie drinking stations are situated at all of our pubs (except for The Herbalist). Their very own barrel of water with bowls that you can access and refill at your leisure means you won’t have to queue at the bar. These are located in plain sight in the garden areas – you’re looking for a white barrel with paw print decorations!

Only premium water for Elite dogs!

Doggie Deli

Doggie Deli

We know it can be difficult to organise pub visits around meal times for pooches, it’s easy to forget and end up ordering a human sized portion of food for the dog to tide you over. That’s why we introduced our Doggy Deli. Your pet can enjoy their very own meal consisting of sausage, ham, peas and carrots for the price of £4.50.

Pub Pooch of the Month

Pub Pooch of the Month

Seeing photos of your cute canines makes our day. That’s why we created Pub Pooch of the Month. Each month, one lucky pup will win our competition and be featured on all of our Instagram feeds, they’ll also win their humans a free pizza and themselves a free doggy deli.

It’s super simple to enter. Simply snap a shot of your gorgeous pups at our pubs and tag the pub you visited. Hashtag #pubpoochofthemonth and then sit back and relax, winners are announced on the last day of the month and your prizes can be redeemed at any time at any pub!

Partnership with J&B’s Barkery

Partnership with J&B’s Barkery

We’ve recently set up perhaps our most exciting collaboration yet with J&B’s Barkery, a homemade organic dog treat company based in Sittingbourne, Kent. We love to see so many of you bringing your furry friends into the pubs and we wanted to be haven for the hounds by offering organic treats with no nasties.

J&B’s Barkery specialise in hand-baked, artisan dog treats. They hand bake all of their biscuit treats from their dedicated bakery in Sittingbourne. All of their treats are baked using fresh and natural ingredients. Check out our dedicated blog.

You can find J&B’s treat bags on our bar for £3.99 and our personalised iced cookies are now just £1.50*.
