With a boyfriend who has a small minicher pinscher, who constantly wants to be by our side, I am forever searching for the pooch approving places in Manchester. Luckily we aren’t that short of places who are happy to accommodate our little pal when we want to have a coffee or a bite to eat.
I have picked out some of my favourites that when we arrive, pooch in hand – literally – they smile and give us the warmest welcome.
One of the Northen Quarters finest bars, having recently done up the place it looks a million dollars. They make us feel super welcome and always supply a water bowl.
Uber cool is a German-style palatial bar with a fine food offer and great bar. Only really suitable for smaller dogs as it gets super busy.
A newbie to the Manchester bar scene, situated in the Northen Quarter they have super friendly staff and are happy for you to bring small pooches in during the day.
This awesome hipster joint on Tariff street is an artisan coffee house and creative space. They are totally cool with dogs and have a huge bookcase filled with awesome books, not to mention their variety of yummy cakes and oversized croissants made by Levenshulme’s Trove bakery.
Grilled cheese spot Northern Soul Mcr is all about the super caje dining experience, even winning the City Life casual Dining award in 2015. They’ve even got a pictures on their Twitter feed capturing the dogs who come in.
As part of The Principal Hotel, they are are a family friendly venue – and they class dogs as family members too.
They welcome well behaved pets on a lead in the bar areas, however they do ask that your dogs don’t sit on the lovely furniture or cushions and if you ask for a dog bed they will happily provide.
Called Porter + Cole after the two dogs that live here, its a super cool coffee lounge and lifestyle store. Of course they welcome dogs of all shapes and sizes.
A popular pizza choice for most and to top it off they are happy to have well behaved dogs inside. Pizza + dogs = what more do you want?
Situated in the heart of the Northern Quarter, Foundation is the perfect spot to take your pooch and catch up on your work/emails. They also have evenings of bake offs, launch nights and coffee tastings!
You and your pooch can experience that New York-meets-UK rock ‘n’ roll vibe whilst sipping on yummy cocktails (ok maybe not the pooch). They also have a cool patio you and your dog can sit and watch the world go by.
The coolest food market in Manchester! They welcome dogs with open arms and have some of the best food vendors inside. Not to mention the wine bar!
The perfect brunch spot with your pooch and the cake here is to die for.
