Dog Friendly Pubs & Cafe’s Wirral

This is my five year old Cocker Spaniel Bailey


My wife and I try to take him to places wherever we can and that includes local pubs and cafes. With this in mind I thought it would be a good idea to try and list as many dog friendly pubs Wirral has to offer (and dog friendly cafes in Wirral too).

I can highly recommend this local Facebook group for all things Wirral and doggy pooch related
