We Like This Kind of Bath

The Four Legged Foodies spend 48 hours in Bath


Dog friendly Bath

Imagine our response when she told us we were going to be in a Bath for 48 hours!

What a relief to discover we weren't having the longest wash ever but in fact spending 2 nights in the gorgeous city which bears the same name as our nemesis!

Here's what we got up to and some great dog friendly places we found.


Dog friendly hotel Bath
The Bird, Bath

For our first night, we checked into The Bird which is a wonderfully dog friendly hotel just a short stroll from the city centre.

The hotel has a free car park where you will also find a dog toilet area by way of a small patch of astroturf.

The Bird is beautiful designed - although we had a slight issue with a cat taking pride of place on the wall - and has some nice touches like free soft drinks and jars of sweets to help yourself to.

The rooms are up some stairs (no lift) which are quite steep but when we got there we had a cosy, clean bedroom with a wonderful view of the city.

We had beds and bowls waiting for us in the room.

Restaurant at The Bird

Dogs are most welcome everywhere at The Bird including in the bar and restaurant which is in the basement. Our humans were delighted to see they had an extensive cocktail list.

The humans were also delighted by the food. The menu is a sharing one, where you choose a mixture of small and large plates and sides to share.

Our humans being greedy decided to try most of the items on the menu and they loved every morsel.
*It is worth visiting The Bird for the restaurant alone.

With full bellies, we all retired to the room where I decided to sleep on the sofa rather than my dog bed!

The following morning we returned to the restaurant for breakfast where we were immediately offered our own sausage which had been pre-cooked so we didn't even have to wait for it to cool down!

The humans filled up their bellies with breakfast before setting for another day exploring the city.


Dog friendly Bath

Bath is a wonderful place to wander around as all the buildings are so pretty and there are lots of little lanes to explore.


Dog friendly restaurant Bath
Pintxo de Bath

You'll find lots of dog friendly places to dine like Pintxo de Bath where we stopped off for a taste of Spain with some Basque tapas.


Dog friendly Bath
Knoops Bath

We even spotted one of our London favourites in Bath so of course we had to pop in and say hello to our friends at Knoops.
*all Knoops venues are dog friendly


Dog friendly Bath
Giant Plane tree Bath

This Giant Plane tree is the oldest architecturally planted tree in the world and arrived in Bath as a sapling in 1793!



Dog friendly Bath

After sampling all the water on offer in the city centre, we headed to our next hotel.


Dog friendly hotel Bath
The Francis Hotel Bath

The Francis Hotel is right in the heart of the city, on Queen Square which as a perfect place for us to use as a toilet.

The Francis Hotel Bath

The hotel is large and very popular, so expect it to be busy at all times.

We had a spacious room on the first floor (there is a lift). Where we had beds and bowls waiting for us and the humans had some welcome chocolates.

Pooches are welcome to dine in the lounge or bar area, both of which are spacious however the tables in the lounge are low.

Archie found an appropriate seat for doggie royalty.

The humans enjoyed some great food for dinner and the bar also has a cocktail menu which always pleases them.



Dog friendly Bath
Royal Victoria Park Bath

After breakfast we went to explore Royal Victoria Park which was recommended to us by the hotel staff.

The park has lots of open green space, some wooded areas and a pond. You can find more details at Visit Bath.


We really enjoyed our stay in Bath and recommend it as a place for our four legged friends to explore.
