Brought your four legged friend along for the journey? Our dog friendly hotel rooms & apartments are right in the heart of the city centre, which has lots of green spaces for your pooch to explore. There’s also some fantastic places that you can get a pint and a bite to eat with your dog in tow. Not only do these places tolerate dogs, they love ’em. Be prepared for all the pats and questioning of who is, indeed, a good boy…

We can’t write a list of dog friendly places to grab a drink and bite without mentioning our very own Bartons Yard. Our stylish bar, open to residents and non residents, offers beers on tap, cocktails, coffees, cakes, light lunches and afternoon teas. Well behaved dogs are welcome (on lead) and will always be greeted with a fresh bowl of chilled water.

The Howard Arms,

Walkies: Five minutes walk from The Halston

Iconic, grade 2 listed pub and old school boozer, The Howard Arms, was one of the pubs under The State Management scheme started in Carlisle in 1916 as an attempt to curb the locals enthusiasm for drinking! Full of character and charm, this dog friendly local favourite has been serving ales since 1855. Pop in for a pint and a pie or one of their Sunday roast specials.
