The best dog-friendly pubs in Edinburgh

Your four-legged friend can join in the fun at our favourite dog-friendly pubs in Edinburgh.

Whether you’ve gone all the way to the top of Arthur’s Seat together or just for a leisurely stroll through the Old Town, these dog-friendly pubs in Edinburgh are the perfect place for you and your four-legged friend to relax.

The Fountain
131 Dundee Street
What was once a proper spit-and-sawdust boozer has become a family-friendly gastropub, with bright, light interiors and a menu full of comfort food. Dogs of all shapes and sizes are warmly welcomed. 

The Pond

The Pond
2–4 Bath Road
Hidden away in Leith, this stylish pub has a seriously impressive range of craft beers and spirits – plus a dedicated doggy menu with four different types of treats on it.

The Royal Dick
1 Summerhall Place
Not so much a pub as a bar-stroke-café, but The Royal Dick – which used to be an animal hospital – is still one of the most laid-back places in Edinburgh to bring your dog.

16-18 Hamilton Place
There’s usually at least one dog propping up the bar at this lively Stockbridge favourite. The menu is strong on locally sourced fish and meat, and the staff will make a big fuss of your four-legged friend.

Holyrood 9a

Holyrood 9a
9a Holyrood Road
Craft ales are the owners’ passion here, and you can try a third of a pint of any one of them. There are more than 20 different gourmet burgers on offer, while dogs will enjoy complimentary water bowls, treats and plenty of hugs.
