Pet-Friendly Pub in Newbury: A Perfect Day Out with Your Furry Friend

Sometimes, all you need is a day with your furry friend. Whether with a group of friends or for a self-love day, planning a day out with your furry companion in Newbury is always a good idea. As dog lovers ourselves, we at The Hare and Hounds understand the joy of spending quality time with your pooch. That’s why we’ve crafted a perfect itinerary for a dog-friendly day of fun in Newbury, ensuring both you and your four-legged companion have a tail-waggingly good time.

Start your day with a refreshing walk in Victoria Park, located in the heart of Newbury. This beautiful green space is ideal for a morning stroll, with plenty of paths and open areas for your dog to explore. The park's serene environment, complete with a picturesque lake and lovely flowerbeds, is a great way to begin your day.

Coffee Break

Newbury is blessed with loads of gorgeous coffee shops, many of which are dog-friendly, so you can enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee while your pup relaxes by your side.

Next, take a leisurely walk along the Kennet and Avon Canal. This historic waterway offers scenic views and a tranquil atmosphere, perfect for a midday adventure. Your dog will love sniffing around the towpath and watching the boats glide by.

By now, you and your furry friend will be ready for a bite to eat. Head to The Hare and Hounds, where you’ll find a warm welcome for both you and your pooch. Our dog-friendly pub is the perfect spot to relax and refuel. If you’re looking for something lighter, we recommend choosing a few of our small plates for the perfect lunchtime treat. While you enjoy your meal, we will make sure your dog is treated to a bowl of water and some tasty treats.

After lunch, why not take a short drive to Donnington Castle? This historic site offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and plenty of space for your dog to roam. The ruins provide a fascinating backdrop for a peaceful afternoon walk.

If you fancy a bit of shopping, head to the Parkway Shopping Centre, which is dog-friendly and offers a range of shops where you can find treats and accessories for your canine companion. Many stores in the centre welcome dogs, making it a convenient stop during your day out.

Return to The Hare and Hounds for a relaxing evening. If the weather is on your side, you can enjoy a delicious, locally sourced dinner in our beautiful garden. Don’t worry if it’s not, as our pub is completely dog-friendly, so you can enjoy a hearty dinner while your dog relaxes in our comfortable and welcoming atmosphere.
