Game, Set and Match for Dog Friendly Wimbledon

Updated: Jul 17, 2021

If you are fans of tennis, then you will definitely be aware of this part of south west London. But there is more to Wimbledon than just a bunch of humans knocking a tennis ball back and forth - they don't even chew it!

Wimbledon is also famous for its Common and the mythical Wombles who keep it litter free. Wimbledon Common is a great place for a walk with a good mixture of open areas, wooded areas and water for dipping our tails in. We do have to share the space with golfers though so watch out for more balls and these ones hurt if they land on your head!

Wimbledon itself is split into the village with a mix of independent shops, cafes and restaurants, most of which are dog friendly. Then there is the town itself, where the station is and some dog friendly pubs. The Costa Coffee by the station also welcomes us pooches.

Here are our recommendations for places to visit when you go to Wimbledon.

Before any adventures begin, make sure the humans are well stocked with treats by popping in to see our friends at Pet Pavilion.

This upmarket Pet Store in Wimbledon Village has everything a doggie needs including their own range of delicious treats and plenty of toys. Be careful not to get too muddy on your walk though as you may be dragged back here for a wash!

If you want to be treated like doggie royalty, then bag yourself a bed at Megan's in the Village.

Like all their restaurants, the décor is super pretty with plenty of flowers and even a tree inside (cocking your leg on this one is frowned upon). The humans love the abundance of fairy lights and they love the food even more.

We doggies are always spoilt with plenty of water and treats and even more adoring attention from the staff.

The Fox and Grapes is a posh, independent gastropub right by Wimbledon Common so is the perfect place to visit after your walkies.

Take your humans along to sample their legendary Sunday Lunch and they also have a large wine selection which usually keeps the humans happy!

We doggies are well catered for with water and biscuits to munch on while your humans watch the tennis.

And if your humans have too much of that wine you can even stay the night because they also rooms upstairs.

If you like a great pub garden, then you will love The Garden Shed which is just on the outskirts of the town but well worth a visit.

The garden is large and mostly covered, with more of those fairy lights that she loves and plenty of seating from bar stools to comfy chairs and sofas.

Inside the pub, the humans can watch sport and enjoy burgers or pizza.


If you're looking for somewhere to watch the Tennis with your pooch by your side and a pint in your hand then we highly recommend The Canbury Arms in Kingston and The Hawk's Nest in Shepherd's Bush.

The Canbury Arms is a wonderful neighbourhood pub in Kingston which has a beautiful garden and serves top notch food for the humans.

We doggies are so welcome here, we don't really know why the humans bother coming too (apart from to pay the bill).

You can watch the Tennis with a glass of their special Sipsmith Strawberry Smash Gin and you'll feel like you're there.
