Pups & Cups Bistro in Old Swan, Liverpool, is the city’s first restaurant dedicated to delivering a pawsome experience for canine customers, with ample space for dogs to runaround and make friends in the Pup Garden, before tucking into dog-friendly treats such as Pawfect Pancakes and Pupachinos. But fret not, dogs aren’t the only ones who can enjoy tasty treats at Pups & Cups: humans can also tuck into breakfast, lunch, dinner and a delightful menu of sweet treats and coffee.

Sometimes simplicity is best, where nothing beats a day out with your dog surrounded by nature. Located a scenic twenty-minute stroll from Disley, Lyme House is an magnificent estate surrounded by acres of moorland and park which is home to a medieval herd of red and fallow deer. Simply stroll around the winding paths and admire the very lake that Colin Firth jumped into as Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice! Dogs are welcome year-round and once you’ve spent a few hours exploring your scenic surroundings, look forward to some much-deserved refreshments in the dog-friendly Timber Yard Cafe.

In the North West, pubs come no dog-friendlier than The Maltings in Warrington, where looking after your four-legged friend extends beyond just providing them with water. Here, dogs can look forward to anything and everything from towels, treats and personalised water bowls, to Sunday Roasts created especially for dogs! In the heart of Liverpool, The Caledonia is another dog-friendly favourite and two-time winner of the regional award – where pooches are welcomed to enjoy great food and live entertainment in the company of the lively local’s two resident sausage dogs.
