With more than 500 hectares of grounds, Richmond is renowned for its greenery and considered one of the best boroughs for residents to live with man’s best friend.

We have put together a list of five watering holes which both owner and pet can enjoy in Richmond on the way this summer.

Paws for coffee, Hampton Hill

Located in Hampton Hill town centre it is perfect if you have been for a stroll in Bushy Park as it sits close to one of the main exits.

Pups are treated to their very own doggy menu which features puppychinos – a concoction of goats milk lightly warmed with black pudding pieces – plus a selection of home-made treats.

Dining at the same table thanks to the secure lead holders owners can choose from an extensive breakfast, salad and toastie menu whilst sipping on a variety of warm drinks or fruity smoothies.

The Marlborough, Richmond Hill

Sitting on the outskirts of Richmond Park this gastro-style pub has an extensive garden to soak up the summer rays whilst your four-legged companion doses at your feet with their own bowl of fresh water.

Feeling peckish there is a glass jar filled with dog biscuits available for your pooch whilst you choose from a selection of seasonal dishes from the brunch, main and Sunday roast menus or relax with a cold beer or caffeine hit.

The Mitre, North Sheen

The refurbished watering hole tucked away in the back streets is so dog-friendly that it has it’s own pub-dog, Rudy, who is always around to come and introduce himself or lie on your feet if their a bit nippy.

Serving a range of good crafts and bespoke beers it is easy to unwind after a long stroll in the nearby parks with beer gardens out the front and back.

The Shaftesbury, Richmond Hill

Also perched close to Richmond Park the culturally-inspired pub offers a tucked away secret garden to sit back enjoy a tipple from the bar as your pooch laps up water from its own bowl.

Guests can dine on a variety of typical British dishes served from the bespoke charcoal oven with a roast available on Sundays.

Old Ship Richmond, King Street

Close to the river this pub also boasts a beer garden to soak up the rays after a stroll with your pup or dine in the rustic interior to catch a game of rugby.

Featuring a menu of classic pub favourites made from seasonal fruit and vegetables there is something for everyone to enjoy whilst your pup laps up from a bowl of water.

The study was commissioned by Pet Food Manufacturers Association in 2017.
