Dog friendly pubs in Evesham, Worcestershire

Looking on Tripadvisor, quite a few pubs in Evesham seem to be dog friendly. However, many of them make no mention of this on their website or Facebook page, so I am reluctant to include them in here in case that is no longer applicable. I have only listed pubs that explicitly say on either social media or the website that they are dog friendly.

Dog friendly pubs in Kidderminster, Worcestershire

Loads of the pubs in Kidderminster seem to be owned by Marston’s. Whilst I have seen people saying on Google that some of these are dog friendly, I have found other information saying that Marston’s pubs are not dog friendly. In the absence of any information about their dog policy on their websites or social media, I haven’t included them in this list.

Hare & Hounds, Kidderminster

The Hare & Hounds website states that its beer garden is a dog friendly area that can be used in any weather. The pub itself boasts comfortable surroundings, free wifi and great coffee. The food looks to be standard pub fare with a wide variety of options including a children’s menu.

Their website mentions that the pub is dog friendly but it’s not clear whether this is the case throughout or just in certain areas.

The Lock at Wolverley, Kidderminster

Located just outside Kidderminster in Wolverley, the Lock doesn’t have a website but the first post I found on their facebook page says: “We are open 10-4 all week, fresh homemade cakes and drinks and hot baps well behaved humans welcome with children or dogs”. That sounds pretty good to me.

Address: Wolverley Road, Wolverley, Kidderminster, DY10 3RN

The Queen’s Head, Wolverley, Kidderminster

The Queen’s Head is in Wolverley, just outside of Kidderminster. According the pub’s website, it is dog friendly with water and treats always available.

The Brewer’s Arms in West Malvern is an extremely unusual pub. It has been open and closed multiple times over the the past few years, until the community clubbed together to buy it at the end of 2022. It doesn’t look like they serve food every day, but they are open Wednesday to Sunday for drinks and serve pie and mash on Thursday evenings.

Do check they’re open before visiting, particularly in bad weather as this pub does sometimes flood due to its riverside location.

Address: Bransford Court Lane, Bransford, Worcestershire, WR6 5JL

The Nag’s Head, Malvern

The Nag’s Head is one of my favourite dog friendly pubs anywhere. Both the bar and restaurant are spacious with log fires and lots of little snugs. They serve posh pub food with great vegetarian and vegan options and an excellent selection of real ales. Look out for the fantastic vegan scotch eggs made locally that are often for sale at the bar. With dogs allowed in the pub, restaurant and two beer gardens, this is a great place to take your pooch. Dog treats are usually for sale on the bar to raise money for a local dog charity.

The Hart, Headless Cross, Redditch

Located at Headless Cross, the Hart is a traditional pub that welcomes children and encourages dogs. They do say that their courtyard is dog friendly, but I’m not sure if this means that dogs can’t go inside. However, the courtyard is heated so you won’t freeze if you do need to stay outdoors. The Hart serves artisan coffee, wines, spirits and cocktails. Food wise, they are proud of their chicken burgers and smashed patties as well as pub classics made on site.

Upton Upon Severn is a lovely place to visit with dogs. There are a lot of flat walks alongside the river as long as it’s not flooded. I can only find the Swan Hotel that lists itself as dog friendly on its website.

The Swan beside the banks of the River Severn is dog friendly throughout, including their accommodation. The building itself is rustic with low ceilings and characterful beams. The bar has always been very friendly and welcoming to everyone including dogs.
