Dog Friendly Pubs and Restaurants in East London

Blog London Lifestyle

Wondering where to eat and drink with your pup in tow in East London? These dog-friendly spots will look after you and your canine friend, and make a sweet stop on any walk.

The Prince Arthur

London Fields is doggie heaven, but if you don’t feel like heading home after your walk, pop into The Prince Arthur, an atmospheric wood-panelled pub, to rest your weary pins. With leather banquettes, real ales on tap and bowls of water for your four-legged friend, it has everything you need. If you’ve worked up an appetite, the Cambodian menu includes dishes such as Phnom Penh braised beef, sour pineapple curry, Asian slaw and Khmer barbecued chicken.

The Red Lion


This iconic Leytonstone venue will welcome you and your pooch with open arms. The Red Lion has a garden which is great for summer months, but, in all honesty, we prefer it inside where we can snuggle up with a real ale and a roast. The ballroom is worth a visit while you’re here, having played host to many a music legend over the years, including Led Zeppelin, Norman Jay and Craig Charles.

The Kenton

Any pub that has a resident pooch (Jarvis) and stocks beer for dogs (Bottom Sniffer) is alright in our book. The Kenton is a Hackney institution, and you and your canine pal will be well looked after here. If you love pub quizzes, 2-4-1 cocktails, bao buns, doggie cuddles and plenty of hipster vibes, then this is your home from home.

The Marksman


After a stroll with your pooch around Columbia Road flower market, stop off at The Marksman on Hackney Road for a local ale and some of the tastiest pub grub around. This isn’t any old East End boozer, though, oh no — the place was bought and renovated by Tom Harris and Jon Rotheram, previously of St John — and their menu is a delightful romp around London’s culinary past. Think salt hake and fritters, chicken and girolle pie, cured sea trout, beef and barley buns with horseradish cream, and devilled Maldon oysters.

Bubala is a tiny, all-vegetarian eatery in Spitalfields not only welcomes pups, it serves some of the best Middle Eastern and Mediterranean mezze in this part of town. Tuck into roasted aubergine, confit potato latkes, honey-glazed halloumi, falafel and creamy hummus. There’s lots of delicious wines by the glass too, in a handy colour-coded list.

Nothing says East London like a converted warehouse, so after a walk around Victoria Park, make a beeline for trendy French restaurant, Bistrotheque, and refuel on hearty dishes such as steak tartare, beef bourguignon and potato and comte pie. Brunch is also highly recommended, though be sure to book ahead. The light and airy space is good news for dog-owners who might need a bit of extra legroom, but it does fill up fast.
23–27 Wadeson St, London, E2 9DR
