Dog Friendly Pubs, Restaurants & Cafés

Norfolk is really dog friendly and you will be welcome in the vast majority of the coastal pubs plus many cafés and restaurants – they also welcome well-behaved humans! Whilst we try to ensure this information is regularly updated policies change, so if you’re travelling a long way to visit an establishment we recommend phoning first to make sure they are still woof friendly.
