            DOG FRIENDLY PUB

Can I come? 

If only our dogs could talk, they would probably ask you this question every time you try to walk out of the door. And it hurts to see their twinkly eyes looking at you all dressed up, ready to go — without them.

Well, time has gone so fast. Many business owners are now putting up establishments where you can bring your precious fur babies and dine in with them. You don’t have to worry about leaving them all alone while you enjoy some drinks with your friends.

They can finally come!

There are many dog-friendly pubs across Sydney, and it’ll be hard enough to decide which pub pours the best beer and offers a good menu of food and doggo meals. Don’t worry! We listed 10 pubs you can visit and make the most out of it.

1. The Newport

Every dog owner’s slice of paradise!
