Best Dog Friendly Restaurants in London


Chameleon Garden

Located within the Grade I listed former church, One Marylebone, Chameleon is a ‘multi-experiential space’ boasting a Tel Aviv-inspired alfresco restaurant where guests are welcome to dine with their dogs every weekend. Led by chef Elior Balbul, The Garden at Chameleon serves up an array of indulgent mezze brunch dishes: think aubergine carpaccio, spicy Moroccan matbucha, beetroot cured salmon and Israeli mille feuille. You can guarantee that the restaurant décor will be just as impressive as the food too: installation floristry specialists Artistically Twisted have dressed the space with florals and will be hosting a daily flower market in the garden. Weekend brunch is available every weekend 12-6pm.

40 Dean Street

40 Dean Street

Combine your love of pasta and pooches with a trip to Soho‘s cosy Italian eatery 40 Dean Street. The buzzing family-run restaurant has been satisfying Italian-esque taste buds across London for over 17 years, serving up the likes of creamy burrata and seafood linguine whilst welcoming pups to join in with the indulgent fun. For those (and we mean humans) who adore truffle, the gnocchi with porcini mushrooms and smoked mozzarella is a must, infused with copious amounts of delicious truffle oil, perfect for dipping bread into. But the pièce de résistance has to be the pistachio tiramisu – light and airy, yet simultaneously indulgent with layer after layer of ladyfingers, chocolate, coffee and cream, with glorious hints of pistachio. The pistachio might not be for pups, but they will be given plenty of water and attention from the incredibly warm staff.

Sloane Place

With a CV that includes The Savoy, Bernhard Mayer may just be up to the task of creating the ultimate dog treat. Made with dog-friendly peanut butter, salmon, carrots, cinnamon and garlic, the cookie will no doubt be popular with furry friends – and it’s for a good cause, with funds going to animal welfare charity Mayhew. Humans, meanwhile, can tuck into brunch dishes including avocado benedict with spinach and harissa hollandaise sauce, coconut bircher muesli and an array of healthy smoothies.

Smith & Whistle

Dog Burgers

In 2018 Smith & Whistle launched the first ever Dogtail menu, so you can enjoy a few tipples alongside your four-legged friend. Treat your dog to a G&T Ginger Tails: a mix of fresh ginger and tonic, or Bubbly Bow Wow: a dog-friendly Prosecco mixed with liquidised blueberries. The bar’s ideal location opposite picturesque Green Park means you can enjoy a post-drink stroll too.



Upmarket Argentinian steak restaurant Gaucho now has it’s own doggy menu, The Muttropolitan, alongside a new dog policy which means pups are allowed all day between 12-6pm. Their ‘Doggy Sundays’ have also been given a makeover, with a selection of dog brands taking over the terrace on the first Sunday afternoon of each month. Book a table under your pooch’s name, and waiters will offer treats and entertainment for them, including a doggy bag of treats and surprises to take home.

Paws For Coffee

This cute café is not just dog friendly, it’s actually dedicated to furry pals and their walkers. Pups can choose from their very own menu, featuring puppuccinos, doggie sausages, and homemade dog treats, before having a quick snooze in one of the comfy dog beds. Oh, and humans can eat here too – think traditional lunch brunch, salads, paninis and smoothies. With one branch in Hampton and another in Richmond, both are perfectly placed for a dog walk round the park afterwards.

M Victoria

Pups are welcome year-round at M Victoria: a ‘Dine with your Dog’ menu is available, complete with Pawsecco for your Canine Companion. Or if your dog is more of a brunch fan, they can tuck into their own brunch menu of either bacon and peanut butter cookies or dried chicken livers. The £5 cost will go towards Battersea Cats and Dogs Home.

Egerton House Hotel

Egerton House Hotel Dog Afternoon tea

Spaniel Life

Who wouldn’t want to go for afternoon tea with their dog? The Egerton offers a unique experience in which dogs are offered their own afternoon tea menu, featuring homemade dog biscuits, chicken and beef meatloaf, and a special dog-friendly ice cream to finish. Meanwhile humans can dine on an equally delicious menu, with options for vegetarians, vegans and those with a gluten intolerance.

Inspired by the wine bars of Spain and Italy, Vinoteca pairs an impressive wine list with seasonal, fresh dishes. The best bit? You can have your dog by your side as you sip and eat away.

Bluebird Café

Pups are more than welcome at long-standing Chelsea haunt Bluebird Café, a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the Kings Road. After being greeted with a warm welcome by staff, dogs are given a bowl of water (with a choice of tap or still), and a goody bag of treats to devour while you tuck into an idyllic Saturday morning lunch.

Milestone Hotel

The Milestone Hotel

For afternoon tea by the fire with your best friend, head to the glamorous Milestone Hotel. Tuck into macaroons, tartlets, a multitude of finger sandwiches and tea or coffee while your dog sits happily with a treat or two.

Outsider Tart

Outsider Tart

The days of feeling bad for eating a slice of cake whilst your dog watches with sad eyes are over. The Outsider Tart provides everything from sweet pies to brownies for humans alongside a special Barkery for your fluffy companion, offering a variety of canine-tailored homemade treats. Who will leave the bakery happier? It’s a tough call.

Colbert, Chelsea

In the centre of Sloane Square, this French-inspired restaurant is the convergence point of Chelsea, Knightsbridge and Belgravia. The upscale cuisine will have you staying for a few hours, but the people watching will keep you there for a good while longer. Lucky you’ll have your trusty companion to keep you company.


Indulge in some traditional Spanish cuisine at Pizarro alongside your puppy pal. Owners and their pets can sit on the window counter seats so your dog can watch passers-by to entertain themselves – and they may even see a fellow furry friend wandering the streets of London. It’s a dog’s life…

Maggie Jones’

Maggie Jones

This intimate restaurant has been a favourite with the locals for over 40 years thanks to its friendly charm. Fresh and dried flowers hang from the ceiling and occupy the tables, along with candles placed in champagne bottles. Dogs are welcome ‘as long as they behave’ and given a fresh bowl of water upon arrival.
