In the Meantime.....Greenwich

Exploring dog friendly Greenwich in South East London

The Old Royal Naval College Greenwich

Greenwich is an area of London that really does have something for everyone. There is culture, history, shopping, plenty of green spaces and an abundance of fabulous eateries.

Oh and its' a great place to visit with your dog!

Dog friendly Enderby House Greenwich London

Start of the day the way every day should start - with a good breakfast!

Enderby House is a Young's pub on the riverside and serves brunch Monday to Saturday. Dogs get free treats and can buy a Jude's doggy ice cream.

Like much of the area, the pub is steeped in history and is located in a converted 1830's house which belonged to the firm of Samuel Enderby, the largest whalers and sealers in Britain, and pioneers of Antarctic exploration. Hermann Melville describes their flagship and crew in “Moby Dick”.

The pub is spacious and airy inside and has a river facing terrace outside.

From the pub you can take a lovely riverside stroll for 1 mile into Greenwich centre or in the other direction you will reach the O2 in just 8 minutes.

Dog friendly River Gardens Café Greenwich London

Another great riverside eatery close by is Riverside Café where you can get breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and great coffee.

Dogs can get treats and ice cream here too while you watch the boats go by on the Thames.

Greenwich Park London

Walk off your brekkie with a stroll in Greenwich Park.

The park has something for everyone. There is plenty of space for picnics, lots of trees providing shade and some fantastic views! From the top, you can see all across London.

Obviously great views come at a price and there is a steep walk to the top of the park but at least there is a step free route.

The Cutty Sark pub dog friendly Greenwich London

Second stop on our Greenwich pub crawl is The Cutty Sark pub which has been serving drinks to people for over 200 hundred years!

Inside the pub you will be transported back to that time with the original features, including creaky wooden stairs reminding us of the boat the pub is named after.

Treats and ice cream are available for pooches and the human food is not your average pub grub but more like a menu and quality you'll find in a good restaurant.

There is a terrace opposite the pub for river views.

Catch of the Day at The Cutty Sark pub

The Cutty Sark Greenwich London

The pub's namesake is a short stroll away. Dogs aren't allowed on board unfortunately but you can still get some great photos (preferably without a human ruining it).

Greenwich Market London

From here, head into Greenwich centre and immerse yourself in the glory of Greenwich Market.

Here you will find a plethora of independent traders selling everything from street food to gifts, clothes, name it.

Pooches are welcome to stroll around on foot or in their wheels!

The Coach and Horses Greenwich dog friendly London

At one end of the market, you will discover another great Young's pub - The Coach and Horses.

More history for you - this pub had been around since the 1800's and used to be a tea salon!

Nowadays it is a fabulous pub where pooches are most welcome by some of the friendliest staff we ever met. Every single one of them wanted to come and say hello to us and give us treats. No complaints here! For the humans, their homemade sausage rolls are a must try.

The pub is quite small inside but has plenty of space within the market.

Greenwich park London dogs

Back to the park for a rest, being a tour guide is tiring you know!

As you can see, the park is well used, especially on warm days. It is also home to The Old Royal Naval College, National Maritime Museum and Royal Observatory.

The Old Brewery Greenwich London dog friendly

Attached to the Old Royal Naval College is Young's pub The Old Brewery.

As the name suggests, this used to be the Greenwich Meantime brewery and you will still find the original brewing tanks in the dining room.

This is a large pub with dining room, bar area and a HUGE garden!

Humans can enjoy decent pub classics and they also have a burger shack.

The Queen's House Greenwich London

Stroll back through the park and soak up a bit more history, before we stop in at pub number 5!

Greenwich Tavern dog friendly London

Opposite the park gates you will find The Greenwich Tavern.

As soon as you walk in, you will see a dog bar with bottomless treats and water - always a good start!

The pub is spacious inside and has a secluded courtyard garden where humans can enjoy their grub and some fantastic cocktails.

Dog friendly Heap's Sausages Greenwich London

No self-respecting dog can visit Greenwich without visiting Heaps Sausages which is just around the corner from Greenwich Tavern.

The shop is small but they now have a great courtyard at the rear with its own bar and seating.

All visiting dogs get their own bag of sausage slices and staff will take a Polaroid of you to add to their pooch wall of fame. Look out for Nacho if you go!

If you fancy trying something different, take the IFS Cloud cable car from the peninsula in North Greenwich and soar over the river to The Royal Dock.

Archie wasn't sure about its wobbliness but the rest of us enjoyed it.

One last Young's pub to visit before we head home for the day and start a diet!!

The Richard 1st is a short stroll from the park and welcomes dogs inside and in their rear garden.

Pub classics are served for humans and they are part of the City to Sea Refill scheme which means humans and dogs can refill their bottles and bowls for free.

Time for us to go home. The Meridian Line runs through Greenwich Park and for those who don't know, this is the reference point for Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

We took the Uber Thames Clipper home from Greenwich to Battersea which is a great way to travel if you're not a fan of the tube.
