Dog friendly guide and directory to Bristol

Exploring Bristol with your dog has never been easier

Exploring Bristol

Bristol is one of the UK’s most vibrant cities, packed with culture, two universities, and plenty of history. The South West of the UK doesn’t get much better than this. You’ve got scenic countryside surrounding the city, making for plenty of great dog walks, but for those who never the leave the city then there’s also plenty to do. The harbour is rich with attractions and places to walk the dog, whilst the city centre is brimming with forward-thinking and progressive businesses… most of whom will let dogs into their premises too!


Our Bristol guide and directory is in its infancy, and is updating rapidly at the moment. Stay tuned to Bring The Pooch for plenty more dog friendly spots in Bristol.



To put it simply, Bravas is some of the best tapas you’ll find outside of Spain itself. Beloved by Bristol locals, this has become an essential visit on your culinary tour around the city.

There are plenty of high quality and authentic tapas dishes on offer here, and they’re paired with fantastic cocktails, Spanish wines, and beers from the region too. They also have fundraising dishes on, so you can donate to charity through the food that you eat!

Bravas are beyond dog friendly, and could not be kinder and more welcoming to dogs. A highly recommend dog friendly restaurant.
