At several of our Great Country Pubs your canine friend will be as welcome as you are. But it’s always best to double check when booking (in case their policy has changed!).
Giving its National Park location, The Rising Sun in Clanfield (Hampshire) is a perfect option for taking 'Fido' along.
Obviously, it depends entirely on what kind of trip you intend to take as to whether you can consider taking your dog along. The English countryside is a wonderful place to walk with your dog and offers an immense variety of landscapes from hills, parkland and woodlands to river valleys and an interesting coastline. Dogs need space, and there are plenty of wide-open spaces where your dog can chase a ball ‘til their heart’s content, many walking trails that will challenge even the fittest of dogs.
National Parks make a major contribution to the beautiful landscape. Nestled in the heart of West Sussex, the South Downs (Britain’s newest National Park) offer a scenic network of paths and bridleways that provide fabulous opportunities for dog walking. While the New Forest National Park has a unique landscape shaped over the centuries by grazing ponies, cattle and pigs that roam free. These majestic woodlands and ancient heathlands create the perfect environment for breathing in fresh country air with your loyal friend at your side.
It’s every dog owner’s duty to make sure their dog is not a danger or nuisance to farm animals, wildlife or other people, and have a responsibility not to allow their dog to foul indiscriminately. And keep an eye out for signs insisting that dogs must be kept on a lead in some areas.
