5 Must Visit Dog-Friendly Pubs in Sydney

What’s better than a pint or glass of wine with your mates? Why having your best mate there of course. We naturally love a good dog-friendly pub at Baxta. It’s so much better with the whole crew there.

So we’ve shared some of our favourite pet friendly pubs in Sydney below and taken the hard work out of it for you!

Constructed in 1882 and re-built in 1924, this pub is never short on character. With a beer garden out the back, the Albion encourages you to bring your pooch along for the day. Just remember that all dogs have to leave by 8pm so the earlier you bring them down, the better!

Sun: 10-12am

With a sprawling courtyard that resembles the look of a Tuscan garden, how could you say no to the Beresford? Filled with lanterns and a giant vertical green wall, it’s the paw-fect playground for your pups. It’s always a buzz with a great atmosphere with lots of space, so perfect for birthday parties too.

Nestled in the heart of Erskineville, The Erko is definitely worth a visit for you and your furry friends. With a smoker out the back, this pub specialises in American BBQ dishes like smoked ribs, wings and veggies. Most importantly, they do have an entire wall filled with polaroids of doggos… if that doesn’t convince you to get down there, we’re not sure what will.

102 Erskineville Rd, Erskineville


Mon-Sat: 10am-12am
Sun- 12pm-10pm

Picture sitting under an 80-year-old oak tree, drink in hand with your pup by your side. That’s what it’s like to spend the day at the Golden Sheaf. It’s not just for wild night time parties. This art-deco style pub built in 1936 welcomes all pups big or small – just be prepared for them to be the centre of attention.

429 New S Head Rd, Double Bay

Sun: 10am-12am
