A great day trip to Bath and pub-crawl with Dennis!

One of our favourite things to do is spend the day in beautiful Bath City. We both relax knowing our Labrador Dennis can come along for the fun to!

Our day begins at our local train station, Yatton. From there we take the train directly through to Bath Spa (£11 return not bad ey!). Dennis earns himself LOTS of attention from other passengers on the train, who can resist those big brown eyes! Did you know all trains in the UK are dog friendly?

Once we arrive we head to Alexandra park which is a 10 minute walk from the train station. The walk to the park is fairly steep but the views overlooking the city are definitely worth it, so don’t give up!

Alternately if the climb is too much you can also follow the path along the canal which is an easy 10 minute walk from the train station.

So, now that Dennis is tired it’s off to quench the thirst from walking up that hill!!

We start by going to the Cosy club which is back in the centre and only 5 minutes from the station. A vibrant bar full of character, this is the place for cocktails! (You should try the Cherry Bakewell it’s delicious). Dennis was allowed everywhere except their restaurant area and was even offered a nice bowl of refreshing water from the the friendly staff there.

Dennis very keen to order food here!

Next we head to the Hall and Woodhouse where dogs are welcome on their ground floor. A warm and inviting place ideal for lounging by the fire on a cold day or making use of their ‘potting shed’ area for summer days. Why not enjoy their Ham hock and cheddar sandwich for lunch? They even offer a pub walk and map! Perfect.

The Huntsman Pub is the third stop on our tour and is a great little place. The staff went the extra mile with their dog friendly attitudes and Dennis received rather a lot of treats! An extra special touch was their wall dedicated to all of the four legged companions that have previously visited. Fingers crossed we make the wall!

We loved this special touch - letting us know they love dogs!

Our final destination before we head home is to the Greek restaurant Opa - You MUST have dinner here the food is authentic and homely and the restaurant/bar has a great feel to it. Dogs are only permitted in their outside area but do not fear they have undercover area’s and outdoor heating! Woo hoo...

They even brought out some steak for Dennis. Lucky boy today!

We are now full and content from a great day out in Bath and ready to head home! Until the next time….

We hope you found this information useful and please do let us know if you try any of these on your next stop to Bath!
