Top 6 Dog Friendly Edinburgh Pubs!

One of the many reasons we love Edinburgh is that it is so dog-friendly! The city is renowned for its outdoor green spaces – perfect for you and your pooch to enjoy a walk. In fact, we have previously collaborated with Gareth from Edinburgh Expert Walking Tours on a blog post to show you some of the top spots to go off-the-lead around Edinburgh. We understand that you don’t always want to leave your four-legged friend at home when you go out for a meal so we’ve put together 6 great dog friendly Edinburgh pubs. Enjoy!
