If you want to combine walking your dog with having a pint or three, taking your dog on a walking pub crawl of Leeds is a great way to go about it.
There are an array of pubs in Leeds which welcome pooches, so if you follow this route you have yourself your very own dog-friendly pub crawl.
This route includes pubs in the city centre, Call Lane and the riverside, but you can chop and change, mix it up a bit or even do it the other way round- whatever best suits you and your dog.
Start at the city centre
Begin in the centre of the city by making your first stop at Nation of Shopkeepers, located on Cookridge Street. After changing its no-dog policy, Nation of Shopkeepers allows you to bring your dog inside, as long as you’re not close to the kitchen.
Here you will find easy access to dog bowls and treats and if the sun is shining your pooch is guaranteed to like their outside courtyard, where you can enjoy a pint in the sun and your pooch can stretch their legs.

Next, make your way to Mill Hill where you will find two destinations located on the same street. Head in the direction of the train station, going via Park Row, passing The Light and Trinity Leeds before arriving at Bundobust.
Bundobust is an extremely dog-friendly pub in the centre of Leeds city, and they are constantly encouraging owners to bring their dogs inside. Here, you can enjoy a pint of one of their delicious craft beers or flavoursome tasty vegetarian Indian street food, whilst your dog has access to constantly replenished bowls of fresh water, meaning they don’t have to go thirsty whilst you enjoy a pint or two.
Head of Steam, 12 Mill Hill, Leeds
Located just a few seconds away on the same street is Head of Steam, which has a wide variety of brews, real ales and craft beers, alongside bowls of water which are ready and waiting for your thirsty pooch. This dog-friendly bar is a great place to stop at on your crawl, and if you fancy going back to Bundobust before heading onto the next, the proximity of this pub to Head of Steam makes it possible to do this.

Next on the list is the Outlaws Yacht Club, located on New York Street. This trendy bar also triples up as an art gallery and coffee house, so if you’re wanting to take your pooch to somewhere cool, this is a great place to go.
You can take your dog in here providing they’re well behaved, and whilst you have a pint they can enjoy a nice bowl of water.

Your pooch can also explore the outside area if they choose, where you can soak up the spring and summer sun if it’s a bright and sunny day.
