Five of the best dog-friendly pubs in Oxford

There’s nothing better than sitting in a pub, pint in hand, and your dog by your side. That’s why I’ve created a short-listed of just some of the dog-friendly pubs in Oxford.

The Fishes, North Hinksey

Huge garden, big shady trees, direct access to the river, unlimited supplies of dog biscuits, super-friendly staff…what more could a pooch want? For the human companions it also offers a delicious menu (I recommend any of the sharing boards and you must try the lobster when it is in season). Only downside is the price tag…it’s not a cheap pint.

Price rating: ££

The Perch, Bisney

The Perch is a must for dog-lovers. Set just off the glorious Port Meadow , your dog can sleep away the walk in a comfy bar area or chill in the shade of the trees in the summer months. A fab outside bar makes for the perfect afternoon – and their scotch eggs are heavenly!

The Rickety Press, Jericho

One of my personal favourite pubs in the city, this gem in the heart of Jericho is also very welcoming of waggy tails. Dog biscuits behind the bar and a chilled vibe make this a great spot to grab some pizza with your pet. They also have great after-work drink offers. The only negative is that there isn’t an outside area.

The Royal Oak, Woodstock Road

Housed in a Grade II listed building, The Royal Oak boasts cosy corners, a beer garden, and an open fire for the winter months. It’s the ideal spot for a bowl of water and a rest after a run around University Parks.

St Aldates Tavern, central Oxford

Perfectly located just a stone’s throw from the high street in the heart of Oxford, St Aldates Tavern welcomes dogs and their owners to a lively local pub. With a selection of books, board games, and TVs showing sport fixtures, St. Aldates is the perfect place to rest tired paws in the city centre.
